On my last night here in Houston, I was privileged to be invited by Anne Stanton, the founder of the Houston IT Professionals group (HIP) to present at their group at Microsoft’s Houston offices. I had just finished attending the Small Business Marketing Unleashed conference and was looking forward to getting back into the same community as I am familiar with. HIP is still in it’s infancy and this was it’s 3rd meeting, so it was great to see 10 people come along to the group. We talked about all manner of things affecting the SMB IT Professional, however the main discussion was on how to do troubleshooting, some of the techniques that I use and have developed over the years. The discussion around this moved into many different tangents at times including how to find good staff and related topics.
I had a great time at the meeting and I want to thank Anne for inviting me to attend and present to this select group.
Thanks also to Mike Whalen for picking me up from the conference in Cypress, TX and getting me to the Microsoft offices for the meeting on time.
I look forward to visiting once again in the future – maybe around the World Wide Partner Conference in July 08.
