Wow!! If I think SPC12, I think beautiful slide decks, vibrant colours, amazing people and of course – SHAREPOINT!! 10,000 attendees – 85 countries – imagine that?!

Opening Keynote:

I’m sure I’m not the only one who got that “Game of Thrones” deja vu #goosebumpstuff. That…. ‘something big is about to happen’ feeling.

Weren’t’ there? Here are some great Videos to watch:

 There were over 300 sessions (read more) held which were broken down into different categories for:

  • Developers
  • IT Professionals
  • Business case studies


Most amazing thing about the conference?

The People… “Cause people without SharePoint will be people. But SharePoint without people is PointLess”.

Saw old friends again. Met people that have been my heroes for years. Made new friends.


I came back knowing that I have to share what I know with people (even if I think it’s insignificant – it’s important to someone out there).

The SharePoint Community Wall:

“Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes, and having fun.” – Mary Lou Cook


What an interesting project by even more interesting people? They’re called Graphic Recorders or Visual Practitioners.  They use visual methods to assist learning and communication between groups and individuals. Assisting people in thinking, or “helping people SEE WHAT THEY MEAN”. Wow, wow, WOW!!!

3 Best sessions (4 me):

Automating SharePoint Governance and Management – Dan Holme

Succeeding With SharePoint In Seven Steps – Richard Harbridge

Unlocking the Secrets of User Adoption Success – Sue Hanley

Just loved Sue’s representation of “Being Prepared” (below):



  • The parties were out of this world. Thank you AvePoint, Axceler & of course Microsoft.
  • Venue, food, staff, refreshments – amazing! What a “well-oiled-machine” – considering we were 10,000 people!
  • MySPC – Information supplied


  • Sadly walked out of some sessions. Not because of content – purely because some of the speakers couldn’t captivate an audience even if they could hypnotize them…
  • Wireless…
  • MySPC – Availability / performance when logging on

So….. that’s me about SPC12.

Thank you to everyone that made it amazing!!
