Thank You, SharePoint Saturday - Redmond!

On my way to the Best Practices Conference out in California I made a quick pit-stop in Washington for SharePoint Saturday Redmond. Held at the Microsoft offices, there was a great turnout and I came across plenty of people(mostly speakers) who were also heading out to the Best Practices Conference. I guess we just can't get enough SharePoint!

I had a great time during my trip to Washington. A special shout out to Christian Buckley, of Axceler, for hosting an afternoon lunch at his awesome home and all who worked so hard to make SharePoint Saturday Redmond a great success. I also want to thank everyone for coming out and listening to me talk! I had a great time and enjoyed meeting some new people while I was there.

As promised, here is my slide deck. If you have questions feel free to get in touch with me.

"Taking the Government out of Governance"

I also spoke at the Best Practices Conference this week so check back soon for slides from those talks. If you were unable to make it out to either of these conferences, check out News & Events to see where I am speaking next. If you're too busy to make it out for any conferences, I will be giving an online webinar on Wednesday, March 16th about the business side of upgrading to SharePoint 2010. You can register for that here.

Thanks again for everyone that put together SharePoint Saturday Redmond and to everyone that came out! I hope to see you all again soon.

Chad's Bio Coming Soon!
