The mail announcing that I have been awarded the 2016 Microsoft MVP Award just came in!
I am looking forward to my third year as an Enterprise Mobility MVP. It is truly an honor to be part of this great community – thanks again to all of you who have been very supportive in the past twelve months!
Time to celebrate!
Again the time of the year has come where I tend to browse through my picture library on my phone and look back at all the good –and sometimes bad and ugly- moments of the past year. Similar to last year I have made an overview with some highlights of 2015.
The founding of Coretech Benelux is without any doubt the greatest moment of 2015. Runner up would be my first time in Redmond attending the MVP global summit. Next to that I had the pleasure to be part again of many community driven events and conferences as a speaker, panel member or as organizer.
As pictures say more than a thousand words … have a look at the compilation I have made for this year.
Thanks to all involved in these great moments of the past year!
Happy New Year – I am looking forward to an even more exciting 2016!
They say time flies when you are having fun. My first year as an Enterprise Client Management MVP has gone by and today on October first I was up for my first renewal cycle.
Earlier today the mail below came in, and I am proud and honored to announce that I have been awarded the 2015 Microsoft MVP Award.
I am looking forward to another great year with my ECM MVP peers and off course with all of you that are part of this great system center community! Thanks for your ongoing support, reading my blog, attending my sessions, etc. !
Until next time!
This is usually the time of the year where we look back and spend some time thinking about all the good, the bad, and even the ugly moments of the past year. I was planning to write a recap blog post but so much happened in the past 12 months that I would not even know where to begin. It has for sure been a year of many ups and unfortunately also a few downs.
I spent some time browsing through my mobile phone photos and decided to compile a short overview with some of the most significant moments of 2014. Just click the picture below to see the end result.
Thanks to all involved in these and other great moments during the past year.
Let’s do even greater, better, and more fun things in 2015!
On October first I was awarded with the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award.
Now would be the perfect time to take the opportunity and thank all those who have supported, encouraged and helped me in the past few years. Without that support I would not be where I am today.
To my community peers: it is a pleasure and an honor to be able to spend time with all of you! Thanks for all the technical talks and knowledge shared, but also for all the fun and good times!
Also a big thanks to those who have attended my sessions, follow my blog, reach out on social media, etc. … this makes all the time and effort spent more than worthwhile!
Getting up to this point has been quite a journey – and for sure there is much more to come!
As a member of the Microsoft Extended Experts Team (MEET) I had the opportunity to enroll as a volunteer for the Safer Internet Day 2014. Through this initiative I have delivered 3 sessions about safe and responsible internet use to a total of 63 students at 2 different schools.
The event took place last week Tuesday, and looking back at that day I can only describe it as a fantastic and very meaningful experience. I was truly amazed by the interaction of the students during these sessions. As a result my biggest issue in fact was to be able to deliver all content during a 60 minute timeslot. Students giving up their afternoon break to keep talking was just another indicator they found the session content really interesting.
I was surprised to see that almost every student had a personal device (computer, tablet, Smartphone …) to go online with … even at such a young age. At the same time I was happy to see and hear that many of them are actually already very much aware of the dangers and pitfalls that exist online. Many of them gathered that knowledge through similar initiatives coming from organizations like Child Focus.
The positive feedback received from the students and their teachers afterwards are truly rewarding and confirm that this is a fantastic initiative. An initiative which I hope to be part of again in the future.
