Speaking

I frequently speak at conferences, user groups, SharePoint Saturday’s, etc. Here’s a journal of events and topics covered.

March 2020 update: Like many of you around the world, I am sheltering-in-place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. I look forward to seeing you again in person once we’re able to put this tragic pandemic behind us. In the meantime, please visit my blog for new posts and links to virtual content. Stay safe, everyone!
