MVP Community Connection 2017

Microsoft SignageFriday morning I took the day off of work so I could fly over to Sydney to take part in a gathering of Australian Microsoft MVPs. Friday afternoon there was a networking/”unconference” event held at Microsoft’s North Ryde campus.

Later we travelled back to Darling Harbor to have some fun at Strike, trying out their Escape Rooms (lots of fun).

The next morning we gathered for breakfast followed by a full day of speakers and workshops. Everyone got these really nice cards of appreciation with personalised Lego mini-figures. Not sure that my hair is brown, but then I’m not really sure what colour it is – the days of being blonde, or even ‘dirty’ blonde are well behind me Smile

Card with "Thankyou for being awesome"

During the afternoon, I was asked to do a short presentation about running a user group. I can tell you I was more than a little bit nervous getting up in front of such an experienced group of people, but I think it went ok.

Early Sunday morning, I flew back home. All in all a great time catching up with friends and learning a lot.
