Do you want to host an AWS event?
Sometimes I receive inquiries from people that are interested in inviting me to come and speak at some event or meeting; feel free to email me, adding details on:
– who are the organizers;
– type of event you are organizing;
– size and type of the expected audience;
– proposed date and venue.

Ideal audiences are developer groups, web experts, CIOs and CTOs, or technical user groups.

Do you want to meet the AWS Business Director?
Martin Buhr, the Business Director for AWS in Europe, doesn’t travel as much as I do, but he’s around quite a bit and he is interested in meeting you.
You can reach Martin on Twitter or on Linkedin.

Thanks a lot for your attention, and hope to see you soon :)
