So How Did It Go?

My first time speaking at a SQL Saturday is now behind me.  I cannot wait to do it again. The support from the SQL Family leading up to and after the event was nothing I expected, it was beyond AMAZING. From high fives in the halls to virtual hugs. I had my own cheering section.

I was a little nervous and talked probably too fast at times, I am sure, but I hear everyone does on their first time out, right? (Evidently, I say that a lot) The good part was that the audience looked to be truly engaged and listening to what I had to say. I even had a few attendees come up to me afterwards and tell me they enjoyed the session and wanted my card. I can’t describe the high you get from that. I, totally, know now why speakers give up their time to do this.comments

Anyhow, I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and I am looking forward to speaking and sharing my knowledge with others.

Moving Forward

To continue to feed my new found addiction, I have already submitted to speak at a couple more SQL Saturday’s.  More specifically, I submitted to speak at SQL Saturday #478 in Albuquerque, New Mexico and to SQL Saturday #470 in Washington, D.C.. I hope that these events will allow me to move forward in becoming a better speaker and to continue giving back to this awesome community! Either way speaking or not, I’ll see you at my next SQL Saturday in DC.

  1. I attended this event. Was one of the better sessions I attended. My coworker was impress at the absence of ‘Ums’. You did a very good job not filling gaps with the common ‘UM’. I learned a few handy Technics to leverage. I would say your first time went very well.
