VMware vCloud Air VMworld sessions

VMware vCloud Air VMworld sessions available

VMware vCloud Air VMworld sessions available Now that VMworld has passed, I thought it would be a good opportunity to share the presentations that I gave. VMworld was incredibily busy time again this year, and the interest in VMwares’ vCloud Air continues to grow. Throughtout my time presenting and attending VMworld, it is interesting to see how the cloud interest has grown over the past 7 years. People are no longer only interested in private clouds, they also want to leverage the public cloud to help ease the pressures on the current on-premises infrastructure. One of my sessions talked exactly about that, the journey to cloud, and how there is a lot of similarities between the virtualization journey and the cloud journey.

VMworld Barcelona – Where I will be

A few people have contacted me on twitter recently asking what sessions I am presenting at VMworld Barcelona 2015. This post is to provide a quick list of the sessions, and date and times of those sessions. Before we get into what where and when my sessions will be though. Lets have a quick re-cap on some of the things that happened at VMworld 2015 USA. Also watch a re-cap with Jay Marshall (who forgets he no longer works at VMware) and Gary Coburn talking about the Google vCloud Air partnership. and of course, no vCloud Air recap would be great without George Kobar having an appearance.  Watch George talk about Microsoft Sharepoint on vCloud Air.

Public Speaking Tips at IT Conferences

Recently I was asked by my manager to think about how I go about presenting at IT conferences.  I’ve now been presenting at IT conferences like VMworld and EMC world for the past five years and have seen my speaker scores steadily improve.  For me personally this has been the greatest achievement of my career so far, becoming a comfortable public speaker and learning how to present not only content, but make it interesting for the audience.

It is said that the fear of public speaking is a fear greater than death for most people. – Robert T. Kiyosaki I can certainly agree with […]
