Speaking at SPSUtah

Leave a comment

I received the official confirmation that I will be speaking at SPSUtah.  This will be my first time in the Salt Lake city area.  I am excited and looking forward to the SharePoint conference, but also for the ShareSki.  The SPSUtah committe is organizing a ski day prior to the SharePoint Saturday event.  I don’t know wich mountain we will be visiting yet (they have lots of great mountains in the area).  I am also planning on Snowboarding for 2 other days while I’m there.  Hopefully I will have a few hours to discover the city.
