July 1. last year was an exhilarating day as I received my very first Microsoft MVP Award – 1. July this year was nothing less, I was anxiously waiting for that e-mail. Late in the afternoon, I received the great news, I am re-awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) title. This is Microsoft’s award for community leadership within a technology discipline, which for me is Windows and Device for IT.
I am humble, honored, and extremely proud to be receiving this recognition, and what a ride the last year has been. I was part of my first local Microsoft MVP gathering, I was once again attending Microsoft Ignite, and this year with the MVP title in the backpack and I was attending my very first Microsoft Global MVP Summit at Microsoft Campus in Redmond – add to this, the insight, the information and the access, it has been a tremendous year and I am looking forward to the coming year – I am still the only Windows and Devices for IT MVP in this little spot, named Denmark.
Being part of this amazing program makes me proud and I am grateful my contributions are recognized and rewarded with a Microsoft MVP Award second year in a row.
Being an Microsoft MVP is only made possible by the support from my family, my colleagues , the constant encouragement by my friend and colleague Per Larsen, the community around Everything Windows User Group, Denmark (EWUG.dk), the people involved and their huge support.
Thank you to my employer, without the support and their trust in me, getting re-award would not have been possible!
What it takes to be an MVP
Microsoft MVP’s are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. They are always on the “bleeding edge” and have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies. They have very deep knowledge of Microsoft products and services, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products, and solutions, to solve real world problems. MVPs make up a global community of over 4,000 technical experts and community leaders across 90 countries and are driven by their passion, community spirit, and quest for knowledge. Above all and in addition to their amazing technical abilities, MVPs are always willing to help others – that is what sets them apart.
