Book Our Team to Speak

You can book our talented team to speak at your local, regional, or national event anytime. We’ve also written and delivered training material on many SQL Server topics. We’d be happy to work on a custom training/mentoring engagement with you and your firm! Many on the team are current or former MVPs in recognition of their efforts in giving their knowledge back to the community. Tara was an MVP for ten years, Jack for five, Mike has been one now for 9 years. We’ve spoken at:

  • Azure Data Fests
