  • Self-Awareness – Feedback

    Self-awareness is an important trait. I believe it is especially important for consultants. For each of us, there is some gap between reality and what we perceive. I believe one measure of humility (or pride) is this self-awareness delta. I also believe we can narrow this gap by engaging in exercises in intentional awareness. Which exercises? ...

  • Some Thoughts on Event Speaker Selection

    I write this from the perspective of experience. I’ve helped organize dozens of events over the past ten years. Feel free to take the parts of this advice that help and discard the parts that don’t. Enjoy! Planning an event is hard work. If you’ve never volunteered to help your local User Group or SQL Saturday, I encourage you to get involved. ...

  • Learning through others

    This PASS Summit was a different experience for me – I wasn’t speaking. I’ve presented at three of the five PASS Summits I’ve been to, where the previous one I’d not spoken at was 2012, while I was a PASS Director (and had been told I shouldn’t submit talks – advice that I’d ignored in 2013). I have to admit that I really missed presenting, both ...

Here’s a few suggestions for getting more out of your PASS Summit experience. “What if I’m Not There?” Not everyone can attend the PASS Summit. You can still enjoy a taste of the activities via ...

  • Less than a month away...

    The PASS Summit for 2014 is nearly upon us, and the MVP Summit is immediately prior, in the same week and the same city. This is my first MVP Summit since early 2008. I’ve been invited every year, but I simply haven’t prioritised it. I’ve been awarded MVP status every year since 2006 (just received my ninth award), but in 2009 and 2010 I attended ...

  • Well Done, PASS Leadership

    I am impressed with the response of PASS leadership to the controversy surrounding the 2014 Board of Directors election. Others have covered the topic much better than I will here, but a short version is PASS responded to the PASS Board 2013 election controversy (members with multiple email accounts receiving multiple ballots) by requiring members ...

  • Wanted: Senior DBA or Dev-DBA (And So Darn Hard to Find!)

    I mentor, teach, and consult about SQL Server. It’s an incredible tool –it is an extremely flexible, adaptable, and complex data environment. SQL Server is capable of bringing tremendous value to an organization when it is configured, tuned, and used appropriately. And one of the things that I am occasionally engaged to do for a client, is to help ...
