No public speaking engagements.

This is due to my work assignment and move to Mauritius. During those six years I had been busy super-vising several development teams and managing communications with project managers back in Germany. I had to deal with financial constraints caused by the Chapter 11 of my then employer. And, I found my soulmate, started a life together and brought two amazing children into this utterly weird world.

Inspiration, or better said the final push, to pick up my previous passion to run an IT-focused user group happened during the Open Days / Windows 8 event at Domaine Les Pailles in Mauritius while speaking to Arnaud Meslier, back then Technical Evangelist - Indian Ocean Islands and French Pacific at Microsoft.

Are you interested in having me present for your event?

Below is a list of my current and past sessions in English and German language. Contact me over here if one of these might be a good fit for your user group, your conference, or your online virtual chapter.

I usually try and align speaking events so that I can either do other talks or commercial workshops at the same time, particularly when international travel is involved.
