Paying my own way to VMworld US

I need your help

For anyone who follows my blog, or twitter you probably know that I recently had major surgery on my ear. Due to this operation I didn’t believe I would be able to attend VMworld US, so I informed the powers that be, I would not be able to travel or participate, so my place got cancelled.

I have now received the excellent news yesterday from my consultant that my ear is healing nicely and I can fly again. Unfortunately due to the short notice, I am not able to get the internal approval needed to be a speaker. However because of how awesome VMworld US is, and all the great people I meet and know, I have decided to pay my own way there. This is where the difficulty lies, I do not have a pass for the conference, and need someone’s help or sponsorship to allow me access to the conference. I am happy to provide assistance to the sponsor in any way needed.

If anyone can help, it would be amazing, otherwise I will be sat outside the Moscone Center waiting for people to come out and talk to me for a week.

    Glad to hear things are on the mend.

    I think people who pay their own way should get free VMware jackets or something.

    This is the second year i’ve paid my own way. I thought i was special, but i’m finding more and more people that are paying their own way. It’s great to see. If only they could be acknowledged.

    Take a stand. be one of us. pay your own way.
