2020 highlights

As the end of 2020 draws near there comes a great opportunity to take a moment to reflect on the high points in a year that none of us could have predicted.  

As many of you know, my passion is being part of this community and helping pass on that sense of community: giving back, lessons learned, advice, experiences, and tips on the technology advances to everyone. Thank you to those I have had the opportunity to work with and all the members of the Cambridge Power Platform User Group for being immense. Wishing you all health and happiness and look forward to working with you in 2021.  

So what did I get up to in 2020…

I know we’ve not had a great year, and while I could write an equally long list of challenges that were far less positive I think it’s important to reflect and find things to feel good about. I choose to keep busy, overcommit and take part – I’m frequently exhausted but never unfulfilled and lucky to be a part of the best community in tech – thanks to all the people that make that community work – you know who you are #PowerPlatform #Microsoft #CommunityRocks #PowerAddicts
