I am the Programs Specialist for Cloud Connect and work directly with our General Manager, Steve Wylie to manage the conference agenda and speaker recruitment. Many of you may recognize my name from our correspondence around the call for submissions; yes, I’m the one you’re trying to finagle that extension with.
Though I work on many, Cloud Connect is one of my favorite events because the people are fantastic. The energy at the conference whether it be from cloud enthusiasts or first time adapters is tangible and the excitement and readiness to challenge each other and solve problems fosters a terrific community.
During the event I most look forward to connecting with all of the track chairs, speakers, and workshop instructors I’ve been preparing with during the eight month cycle up to the event. I also love sitting in on presentations and seeing the expo floor come together and fill with excited attendees.
Right now I’m working on finalizing our workshop agenda and working with our track chairs on their final selections from the call for submissions. I’m very pleased with the way things are coming together and can’t wait to share all of our full conference agenda with all of you!
If you would like to connect with me on twitter, I can be found @gold_em sending the occasional conference update tweet.
I hope to see you all at Cloud Connect Silicon Valley this year!
