Monday night I’ll be presenting in Sydney but just a reminder for anyone in the Winnipeg IT Professionals area, I’ll be in Winnipeg on August 24th.

I’ve been posting up videos of the past Canada events so you can get a flavor and a feel of what will be discussed.

NEWS! NEWS!  Just got word that a special guest, SBS MVP Marina Roos from the Netherlands will be in attendance in Winnipeg!  Woohoo for Winnipeg!

Check out my vids

So in between tour stops I’ve had some download to start uploading videos from the Canada stops we had earlier in the year.

It’s been fun to hear from the attendees and get a pulse of their thoughts and views of the technology that is being demostrated.

Subscribe and as I we go around the world we’ll get more interviews along the way.  Maybe you will show up on the SMBMVPTour YouTube Channel!


So what’s this all about anyway?

If you just showed up on this blog and don’t know what’s this is all about I’d recommend watching these two videos that says more  in video than I can type about what we’re doing:

Jeff Middleton at WPC talking about the tour

And then Kevin Beares and Dana chatting about it as well:

Charlie Russel and Dana Epp at the Canadian kick off of the SMB MVP roadshow.  Charlie in particular is a huge fan of Multipoint server.  It’s a ‘turnkey’ solution for Terminal Services/Remote Desktop Services.  It build in from the get go the ability to monitor and control each of the virtual workstations underneath.

For more information – check out the Multipoint Server’s Youtube channel as well.

Thursday, June 16 at BCIT Downtown – Special 4 Hour Event starting at 4:45pm with Charlie Russell and Dana Epp

SMB MVP Community Roadshow Sponsored by HP and Microsoft

Reg link:

We have a great special event for you. Over 70 MVP’s from around the world have got together and put a proposal to MS and HP for a special event not previously staged. The aim is to stage the event in over 60 locations around the world and Vancouver/VANTUG is very privileged to have been selected as the first venue. In order to do justice to the opportunity this will not be a typical VANTUG event but a half-day event which will start in the late afternoon and finish late in the evening .

Our special friends Dana Epp and Charlie Russel [aka Fric and Frac] are the MVP’s presenting to VANTUG and have lots of great material and demos for you. Since this tour is somewaht unique and special for MS it is expected that some people from Redmond may be in attendance.

Welcome time: 4:15pm

Start time: 4:45pm

End time: 9:45pm


Join Microsoft MVPs Dana Epp and Charlie Russel as they explore the next generation of server solutions coming out from Microsoft.

Topics include:

• SBS 2011 Standard

• SBS 2011 Essentials

• Windows Storage Server 2008 R2 Essentials

• Windows MultiPoint Server 2011

This won’t be an event you will want to miss. Real world demos will be conducted along with discussion on how to really get the most out of the systems. From migration gotchas to extending the platforms with awesome addons, you will really get a good understanding on how to pick the right solutions.
