Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) Award 2021-2022

I have been re-awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) status for yet another award cycle, 2021-2022.

Dear Jesper Nielsen,
We’re once again pleased to present you with the 2020-2021 Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award in recognition of your exceptional technical community leadership. We appreciate your outstanding contributions in the following technical communities during the past year: Windows and Devices for IT.

I am immensely proud and humble, Microsoft has once again recognized my community contributions and re-awarded me as Microsoft MVP for the sixth time in a row in the category Windows & Devices for IT.

Being a Microsoft MVP is only made possible by the support from my family, my colleagues, the community around Windows Management User Group, Denmark (WMUG.dk) (http://wmug.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 a Microsoft MVP for Windows and Devices for IT

Granted, most of my professional time goes with devices management, navigating all the various portal in the Microsoft 365 eco-system and Microsoft Endpoint Manager is a vital part of that journey. But I have a strong passion for End User Experience, and I believe in, you need to have an extensive knowledge about “what you manage” and not so much “how to manage”. Being a Microsoft MVP for Windows and Devices for IT makes me want to know just a bit more, a bit deeper and a bit wider, and knowing Windows from the ground up help me build and deliver well proven prototypes with focus on End User Experience – the management side of this, is (IMHO) just a means to get there, because you have to know what you are managing, to truly understand what you are delivering.

What it takes to be an MVP

The Microsoft MVP Award gives Microsoft the opportunity to celebrate, honor and say thank top-notch technology experts who make outstanding contributions to their communities. These technology experts have an unstoppable urge to get their hands on new, exciting technologies and love to share their knowledge.

While there is no single way to become an MVP, some great examples that showcase MVPs and the passion, community spirit and leadership they have exhibited to earn the MVP award, check out the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional website.
