Okay.. ‘bout time for some shameless self-promotion…
Actually, and honestly.. I don’t look like this anymore. My hair is shorter, and I’ve decided to let the grey just be grey. This is what I look like now:
But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about you IT Managers. As you may (or may not) know, I’ve been helping to create some online resources for IT Managers, in the form or the new IT Manager Community Hub, and the IT Management Forum.
But Evren (Evren Toktas is the real hero here, doing all the heaviest lifting to make these things a reality) and I also thought it would be great if we could do some live chat sessions around topics that IT Managers would be interested in, and could even participate in.
So, using our old-favorite Office LiveMeeting, and doing a webcast-that-isn’t-really-a-webcast, but more of a recorded discussion / talk-radio kind of a thing, we’re rounding up industry and community experts (or just anybody with a strong opinion) to help us hold these live discussion sessions focusing on the topic areas listed.
One regular on the show with me will be Derek Schauland. Derek is a recognized Microsoft MVP (“Most Valued Professional”), and a prolific blogger and writer (for TechRepublic as well as contributions to the aforementioned IT Manager Community Hub). It will be great having Derek on-board.
We have four sessions scheduled for April and May, and would love it if you could join us:

And we want YOU to participate.
Send your questions in ahead of time to Evren (firstname.lastname@example.org), or to me on my Contact page on this blog. (And if it’s not clear, make sure you mention which topic you’re asking the question about.) Or you can come to the event, and ask your questions of us there.
