On July 1st I had the great pleasure of being awarded for a third year as a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP). It is truly a great honor to be awarded for another year.
I want to give a special shout-out to everyone who supports this blog. Your comments, your follows, your likes and your shares–they have all got me to this point. Thank you.
I would like to offer special thanks to my family, friends, colleagues, and employer. Thank you for your continued support and for challenging me to the best I can be.
For me, the MVP program grants two fantastic benefits.
The first is being able to interact directly with the Microsoft product groups. Not only does this allow early access to new features but it also provides a forum for feedback and feature requests. As an MVP you get to help shape Microsoft products and services.
The second benefit is being able to collaborate with MVPs from all across the globe. I have had the great pleasure of becoming friends with MVPs from many different countries and cultures. It is truly an amazing experience and its always a pleasure to catch up with them at the MVP Global Summit.
