On behalf of myself, the Gnome, and all of the presenters of the SMBMVPtour, we are all humbled by the outpouring of help and graciousness of the folks that helped to get this part of the European tour organized. We want to take the time to especially thank some key team members that helped to organize these recent events.
Mikael Nystrom was a fantastic host in two Swedish events.
Tero Leskinen from Finland was over the top in his help and support. Tero even graciously loaned out help from his firm in the form of Antti and Toni.
In addition we’d like to thank Riku Reimaa from Microsoft Finland for his help in getting this event together and for being an excellent host at the Microsoft office (Oy) in Espoo, Finland. We also had special guests from HP that were from the Finland, Global and Emea teams who took the effort to come to Helsinki and visit with me, the Gnome and interact with the local participants.
It was great to meet folks like Matt Thompson from HP Emea who will be helping with the rest of the European events later this year.
Truly we were blown away by everything that occcured on this Road Show. Spending days driving in a van might not sound like fun but when you are there with fabulous folks like Caroline Jane Takeuchi, Lucy Ellis and Greg Starks, who have ensured everything ran smoothly and supported Marina Roos, Oliver Sommer and Jeff Middleton (the tour speakers).
A special thanks to the following people….without their help this roadshow would not be possible.
And Carolyn Jane Takeuchi from Microsoft:
