VMworld 2019 Europe was one of my favourite years yet. It was action packed and I am still writing up stuff to post as so much went on!

Not only were the announcements, sessions and workshops awesome – I actually got to see one of my personal heroes – the inimitable Bear Grylls. His motivational speech about tackling self-doubt and encouraging innovation was exactly as you’d imagine it to be. I felt a real synergy with what he was talking about and  I came out of there wanting to climb a mountain…an innovation one! (I don’t know what that means, but I know how I felt that day.) I may even run an Ultra Marathon in 2020 to keep the mind and body all in check!

That week in Barcelona was exceptional and my personal highlights included:

  • Meeting Pat Gelsinger at the vExpert Party
  • Taking part in VMware Odyssey Hands-on Lab competition
  • Having the amazing honour and opportunity of taking over the VMware UK Twitter for the day
  • Making it onto another set of the #vAllStars cards
  • Taking part in the Odyssey Challenges Fancy giving the challenge a go yourself? Head over to http://odyssey.vmware.com
