Speaking for PASS Professional Development Virtual Chapter

This coming Wednesday I will be speaking for the PASS Professional Development virtual chapter. My talk will be on my career, how I got to where I am, and how I have developed the views I've developed with respect to the job, building yourself up in the profession, etc. What I cover:

  • How my career has developed after almost 25 years in the industry.
  • How setbacks forced me to rethink my plans for the future.
  • How setbacks caused me to take a realistic evaluation of myself and my goals.
  • How opportunities opened because of relationships.
  • How seizing particular opportunities led to where I am today.
  • The non-technical skills I recommend working on.
  • Books that can help develop these skills.
  • The technical skills, outside of database skills, I suggest picking up.

If you're interested, the presentation is at 1 PM Eastern on August 15th via LiveMeeting. You can attend via this link.
