Scottish Summit 2021 – How starting a Podcast got me through a Pandemic

2021 Goals

One of my Goals for 2021 is to do more public speaking. I’m not brand new to public speaking but it’s been a while so I feel I little rusty . I want to improve my presentation skills and get more comfortable delivering content virtually as we may be in this virtual world for longer than we had hoped.

I kicked off the year by talking at a homegrown event – the Scottish Summit. You can read more about the event and how it has grown below.

Scottish Summit 2021

Scottish Summit started in 2019 as a way to showcase Microsoft Dynamics 365 in Scotland. The first event gathered 370 Dynamics professionals to Glasgow to watch 38 sessions. In 2020 the full Microsoft Cloud Community was invited to showcase all the Microsoft Cloud stack and over 1,100 people attended. Fast Forward to 2021 and world events allow the event to go Global to over 3,400 attendees who took in 365 sessions.
