Microsoft Business Solutions MVP
For the last fifteen years I have been supporting midmarket and Fortune 2000 companies with their portfolio and project Management practices in product development, information technology, human resources, research and development and literally almost all types of disciplines across many industries. From helping Mercedes Benz take control of the car launch process to mapping research processes for Wyeth Pharmaceuticals or venturing to the North Slope in February to help Conocophillips take control of maintenance projects, I bring years of business process problem solving to work for your business challenges.
I first became a Microsoft MVP while running ecommerce projects for Bed Bath and Beyond. I was looking for a project management solution for the company in 2000 and stumbled across a new app that shipped with Microsoft Project 2000. When I went looking for other techies with expertise on the subject I discovered that I had accidentally become a top expert on Microsoft's new software. Wrote the first book and the rest is an 18-year history.
What never changes is my continuous commitment to sharing technical knowledge with the community. I do this mainly through my books, training, and activities on the Microsoft forums and LinkedIn groups.
Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the "bleeding edge" and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems. MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts and community leaders across 90 countries and are driven by their passion, community spirit, and quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others - that's what sets them apart. Read more on Microsoft...
