The 2015 IT Governance Tour!

. . . the Awareness Guru from Indiana . . .

Workshops and Conferences in 2015!
Another one of those Dan’s New Leaf Posts, meant to inspire thought about IT Governance . . . .


So last year, for the Infotex Jam, a customer appreciation event we now have every even year, we printed t-shirts with a list of all the upcoming workshops and conferences.  It was a great t-shirt, but became outdated at the end of the year.  That kind of stunk because we ordered too many, and I still have a big box of them in my den.  I like the fact that anytime I want, I can put on another brand new t-shirt, though I also feel a bit guilty  . . .

Anyway, because of the big box in my den, all year long I found myself looking at the back of the t-shirt on a regular basis, because unfortunately in this day of multifactor authentication it’s often quicker to pull a t-shirt out of a box than it is to log into our calendars.

And an interesting phenomenon arose . . . because I had a list of the events I was going to be speaking at, all my talks seemed to be more “integrated.”  In other words, while preparing for the incident response workshop in July, because I was aware that the vendor management talk was coming up in August, my workshop about incident response overlapped more effectively with the talk about vendor management, and vice versa.

So this year, and I presume every year afterwards, I’m going to repeat the act of compiling a list.  We don’t have a good event to give away t-shirts at, so I’ll just have to settle for an on-line blog post . . .

Incidentally, at a recent workshop in Illinois, way back in December 2014, somebody recognized me as “The Awareness Guru from Indiana.”  I have to admit, I like that title!  Interestingly, in this year of “Awareness in All Directions” . . . see my 2015 Trends Article . . . . none of my talks are about awareness (at least at the time of this initial article post.)

We need to fix that!
