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.
My first ever community event was the now legendary Scottish Summit 2019, which is why this event holds such a special place in my heart.
In 2020 I became a volunteer for the event … and in 2021 I took an even bigger leap by deciding to speak! As a new speaker, I was given a huge amount of support which included sessions with Dona Sarkar, and Virtual Power Group on how to prepare, as well as some incredible 1:1 mentoring by community all-star and co-founder of xRMVirtual User Group Julie Yack!
I can’t recommend participating in the Scottish Summit New Speaker programme enough … they have helped me find a voice I never knew I had.
