SQL Saturday Presentation and PASS

Colin Smith Colin Smith Profile: Colin Smith

When I first heard about the SQL Saturday event in Phoenix being postponed I was really bummed out and thought that I might just skip it and not do a presentation. Then I went to the Summit and I was inspired again. But another thing that I got out of it was some great help on what to expect as a presenter.

I went to two very good sessions on Powershell and the presenters were very different in style and that was good for me. I got to see some of what did and did not work so well from each presentation and hopefully I will be able to learn from that and make mine the best it can be. I learned what type of questions to expect and how to handle them when I do not know the answer, and I am sure that will happen.

One thing I noticed while at the Summit is that not many, at least the sessions I attended, of the presenters handed things out during the presentation. Only one of the many that I attended did, and I thought that was really cool and it made it more engaging for the audience. I hope that when I am talking that the audience is engaged and enjoying what I am doing. I think a little bribery goes a long way. I also hope to inspire some pockets of conversation and get people into and exited about what I am talking about.

I really hope that I have learned from the presentations that I attended and really enjoyed, and I hope that I can take what I learned and use it during the first SQL Saturday in Phoenix.

If you have not done it already go and register to attend. I hope to see you!!
