I was sitting in the speaker room at SharePoint Fest Seattle having a Skype chat with John White. We were collaborating on some Business Intelligence content that we could deliver at conferences either together or independently, but still ensure that we were providing a consistent message. At some point during this chat one of us suggested that this amusing & informational back and forth that we were having would make for a pretty decent podcast. Dan Holme, CEO of ITUnity, overheard the comment and said “It would make an even better web show on ITUnity!” Thus an idea was born.
I am excited to announce that a mere 5 months later we are ready to go live with our new monthly web show, BI Focal. We are going to keep you up to date on all of the latest news in the BI space, provide Tips & Tricks, have interesting guests, take viewer questions, and even do some cool demos.
We hope that you will join us for our inaugural show “Select * from Hosts” on January 28th, 2016 at 1:30PM Eastern Time on ITUnity. Check out our promo below:
I am sitting in the Toronto City Airport after speaking at #SPSToronto yesterday and realized that I hadn’t posted anything about my upcoming talks.
Yesterday was a day of BI. I did Heavy Metal PowerPivot Remastered in the morning, followed by John White doing SharePoint for Business Intelligence, and then I did Business Intelligence in SharePoint 2013. The whole day built nicely and the attendees grew in numbers from session to session. All it all it was a great collaborative day of BI. I have to give a ton of credit to Eric Riz, Kanwal Khipple & Ruven Gotz for putting together a terrific day for the attendees. It was great to see the hall completely packed at the end of the day with people who really loved what they got.
Next up for me is #SPSNYC this coming weekend (7/27) where I will be giving my SharePoint Performance: Best Practices from the Field talk.
Following that I will be speaking at SharePoint Fest DC (8/5 – 8/7) & SPTechCon Boston (8/11 – 8/14).
After those two I am taking a few weeks to rest up before we put on SharePoint Saturday New Hampshire, for which we have an open call for Speakers & Sponsors.
4 conferences in 4 weeks… let the insanity commence!
