Skype for Business MVP Award

I know it's April Fools Day, but as the @MVPAward reminded us on Twitter today: This is no April Fools: .

About 4:30PM my time, my phone buzzed as I received an e-mail. I'm on vacation, and wasn't really in an e-mail reading mode. But as I glanced at the phone, my heart skipped a beat when I read the heading: "Congratulations 2015 Microsoft MVP!".

I immediately put my vacation "on hold", and powered up my laptop (never far away though, even on a vacation) to read the following email.


This is my first MVP award, and I am utterly humbled, proud, honored and flattered to be recognized by Microsoft and other professional peers like this. It is a good feeling (and indeed a very good day) to be recognized for the hard work and effort put into my work and hobby, and I must send a warm thank you to those who nominated me and supported me for this nomination.

It has been a busy year for me, but I just realized it's about to get even crazier now. I am really looking forward to work with the best of the best, and help spreading my knowledge about Skype for Business in the next months (and years?) to come.

There are posts to write, Meetups and usergroups to manage, conferences to attend as both a speaker and an attendee. And who knows what other opportunities may lay around the next corner. And all of this in addition to my regular work.
