Speaking at 24 Hours of PASS

24HOP_GOC_SpeakerButtonI’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been selected to present as part of the next 24 Hours of PASS! The theme this time is “Growing Our Communities” – only those who have never been accepted to speak at PASS Summit were eligible to submit abstracts. From the submitted abstracts, twenty-four were selected to present a one-hour webcast during the event on June 24 and 25. The full schedule was announced today, and I have to say, I’m in great company. I’ve met many of the selected speakers over the last couple of years – they’re fantastic presenters, and I’m honored to be part of that group.

I’ll be presenting one of my current presentations, “Protecting Your Data with Encryption”, at 10:00 AM (CDT) on June 24.  If you’d like to attend, you can register now at the 24 Hours of PASS site.  I’d love to see you there!
