My name is Eric Berg and I work as Lead IT-Architect in the Azure Team of COMPAREX in Germany. Also I am a Microsoft MVP for Cloud and Datacenter Management.
Right now I am focussing on Azure and Datacenter Infrastructure and Management. In the past I have done a lot in Client Management area too.
Since 2016 I am the organizer of the Azure Thüringen Meetup, where we talk about Azure related stuff from infrastructure to development.
I am active speaker on national and international conferences and user groups like, Azure Meetups, System Center User Groups, Cloud and Datacenter User Group, Technical Summit, IT-Camps, Microsoft Ignite, ExpertsLive, Cloud and Datacenter Conference, …
Also I am running a podcast and a webcast series together with one of my fellow MVPs called GeekSprech and GeekSchau.
As a Consultant it was my day to day business to present solutions to the customer. With my growing engagement in the community there were more opportunities to be chosen as a speaker. Over time I was invited to participate in several Call for Speakers and this was my starting point for international speaking engagements.
My first speaking opportunity at Microsoft Ignite was insane. There was a room fitting for 600 people and me standing on stage…prepared but nervous… speaking in front of such an audience….in englisch as a non-native speaker – The result was overwhelming… great feedback, questions and evaluations.
Now I am here to help others to reach the same point and feel this overwhelming feeling after a speech. I would like to share my experiences, help to prepare good stories for your presentations and see you make your own experiences.
