3.1.34. SharePoint Strategy Summit Best Practices for SharePoint Adoption Abstract: SharePoint might seem nearly ubiquitous as an enterprise collaboration platform, yet many organizations are still in the process of deciding whether or how to adopt it as part of a broader intranet platform. In the meantime, Microsoft is heavily touting new social and community services in the latest version, SharePoint 2010. Get an objective overview of what works well—and poorly—in SharePoint 2010. Future Proofing Your SharePoint Strategy Abstract: SharePoint is constantly evolving. This session will provide best practices for ensuring your SharePoint implementation will succeed over time. SharePoint 20??: What's Next? Abstract: In this wrap-up session, the experts will share their thoughts on the future of the SharePoint platform and give advice on how you can prepare to meet these future challenges and opportunities.

3.1.35. SharePoint Symposium Which Approach to SharePoint Governance Is Right For You? Abstract: Everyone agrees governance is critical — even essential — to long-term success with SharePoint. But how to do it and where to start? Join a panel of consultants and customers who will outline different ways that they’ve gotten SharePoint under control within their organizations. There’s no simple answer here — but you should come away with an approach that works for you. Should I Use SharePoint For WCM (Web Content Management)? Abstract: With SharePoint 2007, Microsoft added web content management (WCM) services to the platform, and those capabilities have been upgraded in SharePoint 2010. Yet, SharePoint has not swept the WCM marketplace, and its main competitors continue to expand. What’s going on, and what does it mean for you? Join a panel of WCM integrators who implement multiple different tools to learn about when to use SharePoint for web content management and when to explore other alternatives. Stump The SharePoint Consultant Abstract: Bring your toughest, thorniest, most intractable Share-Point project challenge to the session. A team of experienced consultants will compete to offer you the best advice in 2 minutes or less. The twist, though, is that none of the consultants can hear the answers that the others give. You’ll hear clever, insightful, likely controversial, and sometimes entertaining answers to your questions. The real winner of the session is the audience. Not only do you get some great advice, the attendee deemed to have submitted the toughest problem will win a prize. The Steps to Effective SharePoint Governance

7.2.2. Relationship: Hired Richard as an IT Consultant in 2008

7.2.3. Recommendation: The City of Waterloo launched an intranet solution in early 2009. Richard was a part of the team responsible for designing, customizing, and implementing that solution. Richard attended and consulted with end users during the requirements gathering phase to ensure expectations of the solution would be met and acted as a technical resource for the project manager. He was always courteous, professional, and focused. Richard also worked in tandem with the project manager to offer training to end users once the solution was ready for launch. I attended that training session and was impressed by Richard's ability to demystify technical terms and processes to a largely non-technical audience. Above all, what impresses me most about Richard is his enthusiasm and dedication to what he does. Richard's role as a SharePoint consultant for the City of Waterloo is over now, but I continue to seek his guidance as I ramp up my SharePoint knowledge. I am grateful for Richard's continued advice, encouragement, and consultation. I highly recommend Richard for any future venture he may have opportunity to participate in and hope to work with him in the future.

He is always looking at better ways to use technology and proper approaches to apply it to match user expectations and readiness.

It goes without saying Richard continues to be, and will always be a huge asset to any team he is part of.
