Technology Speaking Tour of Northern South America Kick off
Posted On July 11, 2013
I’m happy to announce the Sharing the Point Crew is headed out once again to connect with folks in under served parts of the world. We are headed to Northern South America. This “Tour” will take us across the islands of Trinidad and Tobago where we hope to connect with isolated SharePoint folks, to the only English speaking country in South America in Georgetown Guyana and from there to Caracas, Venezuela and on to popular SharePoint city of Bogota, Colombia (home of Communidad SharePoint Colombia sharecol.com) and our final stop in Quito Ecuador. As far as I can tell, no other US SharePoint speakers have ever spoken in these cities. It’s a great opportunity to unite the global community, and build new communities. Our success is based on getting the word out. Please help us! Please share with your social networks!

Special Thanks to Elias Mereb, MVP and Andres Rojas for helping us on connecting with the community and logistics in Colombia and Venezuela. Andres is helping us look into doing a bigger event in Bogota with additional speakers and tracks. If interested please coordinate with myself and Andres.
Ricardo Munoz, SharePoint MVP from Costa Rica is planning on helping us this time around as he did in Southern South America. He translated our sessions last time and has plans to help us out.
Please Share the word! We really want to connect with folks who have NEVER been to a SharePoint event, and our desire is to launch communities in all of the cities where there is no established user group or SharePoint or IT community. All this training is free.
We are still looking for sponsors if anyone is interested please contact me.
For sure those who have put forth resources willing to sacrifice time and funds to go are:
