Join Me at Microsoft Ignite 2019

The countdown to Microsoft’s biggest conference of the year is nearing single digits. One thing I appreciate about Microsoft Ignite is that the line up sessions do not merely focus on technology, nor are all of the sessions lecture based; they also bring in real-life applications and topics for attendees in regards to how they relate to technology in general.

In the past, I’ve had the honor of participating in sessions on important and timely topics such as diversity and inclusion in technology that brought many great insights. As a father, and one new to parenthood, I’m extremely excited to be joining a session that speaks to my heart, “Balancing family and career: Can you have it all?” If you’re a parent (new, seasoned, planning to be, or simply interested), I strongly encourage you to add this to your session schedule.

Using the unconference format, this “session” will be for us all. We will have topics to discuss, while also encouraging very active participation. Do you have any topics you’d like to see covered? Any questions you’d like me to ask? Shoot me a message, I’d love to include your insight.

Here are the details:

Balancing family and career: Can you have it all?

Balancing parenthood and a job in the fast-paced tech industry is no easy feat – and can especially be daunting for new parents. With only 24 hours in the day, how are you supposed to do it all? How can you assure you have enough time for family life when you work full time? Especially if your job requires you – even if only occasionally – to put in long hours, join early morning meetings or travel for business, having a fulfilling career AND a rich family life can feel like an impossible task. Join Anne Michels, Director Teams Product Marketing, for best practices, tips, and advice on how to achieve a healthy work-family-balance. In this interactive sessions, learn from and connect with other parents who go above and beyond every day – at home and at work.
