It seems like yesterday that I wrote this post introducing myself as the newest member of the Canadian TechNet team. Over the last 4+ years I’ve had the opportunity of a lifetime travelling across Canada engaging and interacting with the outstanding technical community in Canada and evangelizing the fantastic products and solutions Microsoft produces. From TechNet events, to EnergizeIT, to TechDays, BVL Launch, Heroes Happen Here, with plenty of user group events mixed in for good measure it has been the ride of a lifetime.
It wasn’t an easy decision to leave, it never is, especially when you work with an outstanding team as the one I’ve been a part of at one of the leading companies in the world. Not many people have the opportunity to work for an organization that is truly changing the world. I learned a lot from everyone that I have worked with over these past four years. It has been the experience of a lifetime. But the time has come…
Every so often an opportunity comes up that you just can’t pass up. One of those opportunities has come up and I’ve accepted the role of Senior Microsoft Infrastructure Consultant at CMS Consulting, a leading Microsoft Gold Partner in Toronto. This is an exciting opportunity to get back in the field and get my hands dirty. I’ll be focusing on Microsoft Optimized Desktop and Virtualization solutions. It is a chance to go deep with customers and work with them in their adoption of Microsoft technologies.
My last day is November 12th 2010 but before I go I wanted to say thank you. I truly enjoyed interacting with you and the rest of the Canadian technical audience over the past 4+ years. From sharing your stories, supporting your development and sharing the occasional pint it has been a blast. I will not be dropping off the face of the earth! I will be delivering a session at IT Pro Toronto in May and still be engaged with the technical community in the GTA and across Canada. Virtually you can find me at these spots….
