Worldwide Secret Santa

Posted by on Nov 20, 2012 in General | 1 comment

Hello Everyone,

Given that Christmas is just around the corner, I thought it would be great to have a Secret Santa twitter style.

If you are interested in getting involved all you have to do is send an email to with the following details;

3 Interests:

Absolutely no information will be passed to anyone else other than your matched Secret Santa, only myself and my Fiancee will know who has been matched with who.

All gifts should be mailed to the recipient, no electronic vouchers etc (everyone loves to receive a parcel)
Max gift value £10 (please google to convert to local currency) this is not including delivery cost. 

The following guidance and deadlines are needed to ensure a successful secret santa

Entry Deadline: Friday 23rd November 5:00pm GMT
Emailed Match: Saturday 24th November Noon GMT
Last Day for Delivery: 3rd December

This gives you two full weekends to aquire and send a gift to your matched Secret Santa.

Any questions or suggestions to the rules please let me know.

Off Topic – How do you feel about AutoTweets?

Posted by on Jul 7, 2012 in General | 1 comment

So this is a fairly straight forward poll, we have all had this right? Mention the word iPad on twitter and you will be spammed to death offering you free iPads if you just click the link.

OK what about the good auto tweets? When you mention a company and they said you a tweet with a discount? Much less likely than the first one.

So come on, how do you feel about it?

FREE SharePoint 2010 Branding Workshops

Posted by on May 8, 2012 in Branding Series, General, SharePoint | 21 comments

Hey Everyone,

I have a Workshop I will be delivering in Boston in July and I wanted to do a run through of the four 90 minute parts to the session online.

The sessions are instructor led and therefore all you need is a PC and audio.

I will take ~10 people so that I can get varied feedback and it would be great to have some people that have never bothered with Branding in the past.

Leave a comment in the post to register your interest and I look to scheduling them in June.

Sessions will be as follows

Session 1 – Introduction to Branding, planning, tools etc etc

Session 2 – Creating a simple branded solution part 1

Session 3 – Creating a simple branded solution part 2

Session 4 – Advanced branding

The sessions are subject to change as I write the content and materials although that’s how I see it going.

No written materials will be provided although I will make the master page and associated CSS files available to attendees at the end of the four sessions.
