The day that I lost my MVP status

I often look for ways to break the ice at the start of a training session or presentation.

My first opportunity tends to be the introductions.

When delivering Microsoft Official Curriculum - MOC courses, it is common to establish your credentials and suitability to train this  particular course.

I made up a slide that introduced me and my Microsoft qualifications.

It looked something like this.

The chances were that someone would ask what MVP stood for.

To which I replied "Mother's Very Proud".

This would always get a laugh.

Good start.

I got by with that gag for years and then one day, Microsoft announced a new form of accreditation, the Most Valuable Professional - MVP.

Introductions have never been the same since.

See you soon
