Networking Field Day #5 – A Community Event

I’m not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues. – Franklin D. Roosevelt
Networking Field Day is upon us again. The days of March 6-8 some of the best in the business are going to be together again to have participating vendors pitch their product strategies to the NFD delegates and more importantly, to everyone else watching the live stream. I was invited to attend Network Field #5 and I humbly accepted. Network Field Day #4 was a wonderful experience where I made lifelong colleagues and friends.

IT Community Leaders

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. – Winston Churchill
NFD delegates are industry thought leaders and more importantly community developers and mentors to future leaders in IT. To name just a few guys, involved in Network Field Day, that have gone out of their way in my professional development, that I look to as role models are Stephen Foskett, Greg Ferro, Ethan Banks and Ivan Pepelnjak define community and leadership in IT. They go out of their way to see others to be successful and encourage fellowship amongst our developing community. The network is changing mankind, I have the utmost respect for those who sacrifice time with family and friends because they are dedicated to making a difference.

Many people are good at talking about what they are doing, but in fact do little. Others do a lot but don’t talk about it; they are the ones who make a community live. – Jean Vanier, Community Growth
