Upcoming speaking engagements

I quickly wanted to share with you some of my upcoming speaking engagements for the next few months. The events I’m speaking on are all free and I encourage you to register as they contain lot’s of useful information. Good events are not always the ones you have to pay for!

The first event will be on the 7th of June: Microsoft Experience Days, more particular on the “Experience Windows Server 2012”-event. I will be talking about the improvements on Failover Clustering. Some of you might find this odd, since I mostly speak about Exchange and Office 365, but I’m very exited to talk about the new features in Windows Server 2012 as this magnificent OS has had a major overhaul compared to it’s predecessor Windows Server 2008 R2. Believe me: there is a lot to talk about! Smile

The second event will be the Belgian Community Day on June 21st where I will be doing a duo-presentation with my colleague Koen Vermoesen on our experiences with Exchange Server 2010 and archiving. This “Notes from the field”-session will be packed with useful information about what archiving in Exchange can (or cannot) do for you.

Looking further down the road, there are some pretty good chances I will be speaking at other events as well. Perhaps if I’m lucky, I will be able to do a session together with Peter De Tender at this year’s MCT Summit in Warsaw…We’ll see!

Hope to see you all there!

During “The Best Of MMS 2012”, you’ll learn about what’s new in System Center 2012. Experts who attended MMS 2012 in Las Vegas will share their in-depth knowledge on various topics like:

  • Infrastructure Management
  • Service Delivery

  • Application Management
  • Desktop & Device Management

At “Experience Windows Server 2012” you will discover how the newest version of Windows is going beyond virtualization by scaling and securing workload, how it will enable the modern work style by giving people access to information and data regardless of the infrastructure, network, device or application they use to access it. You will also discover the power of many servers with the simplicity of only one by efficiently managing the infrastructure while maximizing uptime and minimizing failures and downtime.

The sessions that will be given that day cover topics like:

  • Hyper-V Virtualization Platform in Server 2012
  • What’s new in Active Directory
  • Storage and Management Improvements
  • Clustering improvements
  • and many more…

Microsoft Community Contributor Award 2012

Yesterday evening, I received an email from Microsoft which started as follows:


I must admit that when I read the email I felt honored that my contributions have been picked up; but foremost that they have had an impact. The idea that some of my contributions perhaps made a difference and helped a few out there, is something that really makes me proud.

I didn’t see this one coming and I can only think of two words that seem appropriate: THANK YOU. Thank you to all of you out there that read my posts, listen to my presentations, attend my webcasts and give me feedback.
