One Week Until Louisville!

Louisville has a special place in my heart because it was my brother's home for more than 15 years. I spent a lot of time on I-65 traveling from my home town of Huntsville, AL to visit my bro in Louisville and New Albany, after he bought a place on the north side of the mighty Ohio River. It's always felt like a home away from home, even long after he moved on.

SQL Saturday 122 is just around the corner and I'll be speaking both in a full day, pre-conference seminar plus a couple sessions at the SQL Saturday itself.

Leadership Skills for the IT Professional

My pre-con is all about learning the essential leadership skills to lead IT people.  It's designed for IT technologists who've been promoted into a leadership role and find that their technology skills don't readily transfer into leading people.  Details for the class and registration are available here at Leadership Skills for IT Professionals.  As is traditional at IT conferences, professional development classes don't get as much attendance as the hard technology classes.  So, please spread the word to other IT leaders in your organizations and help me fill the class.  It's fully applicable to other IT disciplines besides DBAs and Developers, so tell your Exchange admins, HelpDesk bosses, and others.

If you're interested in the topic, but can't attend for some reason, consider purchasing my DVD set and/or the streaming media.  Get the details here for the vConference and DVDs on Leadership Skills for the IT Professional.

SQL Saturday 122 Sessions

I'll be presenting in a few sessions at the SQL Saturday itself, including my popular session SQL Server Internals and Architecture. I'll also be sitting in the Women In Technology panel at lunch, filling the 'token male' quota and offering my perspective as the dad of three daughters and three step-daughters urging them on to bigger and better things.  Right after that, I'll be presenting one module of my leadership training called Communicating Upward, which is all about influencing your boss and your boss' boss.

 

Please spread the word.  I hope to see you there! Enjoy,

-Kev
