I think that speaking engagement comes in waves, just like everything else. Over the course of the summer I’ve had very little speaking opportunities and now within the span of a couple of months I’ll be speaking on a number of occasions.
As one who is addicted to teaching & speaking in general, this is a good thing!
Here are some upcoming speaking engagements! Also, if you would like for me to do a presentation, either remote or onsite, please feel free to reach out to me! I’d love to present to your organization!
On Thursday August 28th, 2014 I’ll be doing a remote presentation labeled “Only You Can Prevent Database Fires!“. This presentation hi-lights some of the things that we as DBA’s we can do to prevent database fires. A little fire prevention and/or awareness will go a long way, even in the technology world.
On Tuesday September 9, 2014 at 7PM CST, my good friend Chris Shaw (B|T) and I will be presenting during the next segment of 24 Hours of PASS (24HOP). This segment will hi-light some of the sessions and speakers that will be presenting at the annual PASS Summit in November. Chris and I will be going head to head during our session “Real World SQL 2014 Migration Path Decisions“. The 24HOP offers 24 hours of free training so it’s a great (and cheap!) way to get training!
I’ll be heading down to Kansas City, Missouri for the 300th SQL Saturday that is being held on Saturday September 13, 2014. I’m always honored to have been selected to speak, especially as this marks the 300th SQL Saturday. I’ll be speaking about Social Network and how it can improve your life! Much like the 24HOP event, SQL Saturday’s is another great way to get free training. If you can make it, I highly recommend these events.
To round out the fall, my good friend Chris Shaw and I will be doing a pre-con at the annual SQL PASS Summit 2014. This event will be held in Seattle, Washington and it’s another event that I highly recommend. Like the 24HOP session, Chris and I will be going head to head discussion “Real World End to End Performance Solutions“. While these events (the Summit & Precons) are not free, they are worth the investment. See you in Seattle!
It’s going to be a busy schedule this fall but I’m really looking forward to it!
