My Upcoming Projects and Call for Reviewers

Hi everyone!

After taking a much needed break from social media, I am revved up and ready to go.  It is amazing how taking a break, no matter how small, can change your attitude.  The constant influx of information, both good and, especially now, bad can be extremely overwhelming and you don’t even notice how it’s dragging you down until you take that break.  BUT here I am and I want to lay out some plans of mine for the foreseeable future in regards to content.

First and foremost, I am going to be starting a YouTube channel.  I plan on talking about any number of topics which will include EUC, overall technology and outside technology.  My main goal of the channel is to pass along my experiences over the years and lessons I’ve learned.  I’ve had the fortune to be mentored and it changed my career around and I’m truthfully much happier where I am today career-wise than before the mentoring started.  I hope people get something out of these video’s.

Second, I’m finishing up a blog on IT and marketing which will hopefully be out this week.  This is a hugely overlooked method of “selling” new technology to end users.  In this case, it’s about virtual desktops and how organizations I’ve worked with have gotten almost complete buy in from end users.  I think it’s something that any big project can use effectively.

Third, DJ Eshelman (@TheCitrixCoach), Dane Young (@youngtech) and I are working on an exciting new project.  I can’t wait until we unveil this so stay tuned!

Last but not least, a friend and colleague of mine, Matt Allen (@MattJAllen) and I have developed training that was originally designed for Sales Engineers but is really for anyone that works with customers, end users or is public facing in some way.  It’s all about developing the soft skills and understanding why they are important.  It’s not a day training but more like an hour or two right now.  If a group is interested in helping sort of beta test the training so we can get feedback ,etc please contact me directly (Jeff Pitsch).

So that’s what I’m working on right now.  I would also add if anyone needs help from a contracting standpoint especially with writing, speaking events, reviews or whatever please let me know and we can discuss.

Thanks everyone and enjoy working from home!
