    In 2016, I spoke publicly 15 different times!

    Before now, there was never a super easy way to find this information, at any time. Now this page is just one click away from anywhere at TinkerTry!

    I'll be speaking at various user groups as:

    1. an IT Pro who is also a user.
    2. a content creator/blogger from TinkerTry.
    3. a VMware Systems Engineer.

    This one post will cover them all. Please don't hesitate to come up to me and introduce yourself at any of these free events. Don't worry, I was an introvert too!
