At VMworld Barcelona 2017 I caught up with a friend of mine Alan Renouf after he had just presented on the VMworld General Session / Keynote stage with VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger. Alan is a well known VMware community contributor with his blog virtu-al.net
We spoke about Alan's story and how he went from being an IT admin from Wiltshire in the UK, through to making his first VMUG (VMware User Group) Presentation) and finally after becoming a VMware Senior Product Line Manager in the states making it onto the mainstage at VMworld 2017.
Alan's story should serve as inspiration to anyone that with hard work, embracing the community and grasping the opportunities you have, can get anywhere you want.
