In recognition of unmatched delivery of Voltex’s first intranet built on SharePoint 2010 Foundation. The only contestant to get Exco support and references from the CEO and CIO. The only contestant to get the CEO of the company to blog on SharePoint regularly. The only contestant to have “single-handedly change the culture of a 1500 people company”, as quoted by the CEO, Stanley Green himself; who also says “your work ethic is astounding and focus unequivocal”: And all this as a one-woman SharePoint band. Congratulations Maureen on a very well-deserved win.
In special recognition to someone who has attended every SharePoint event in the past 5 years, and who was nominated by 16 people. Congratulations Athena, your tireless efforts to stay in touch with the community and the wonderful feedback from those who nominated you makes you a worthy winner of the new category we made just for this.
You prove every day that age is no barrier to achieving your goals. Never give up.
In recognition of your 13 years in SharePoint, the endless SharePoint videos you made for business, the incredible feedback on your training and services; and achieving the highest assessments scores in the competition this year. Well done Louise, we are very proud of you!
In recognition of admitting to deleting the entire Data Warehouse Dev Site Collection, but recovering with style regardless; blogging on your company’s website, and changing your stars as a self-taught SharePoint specialist. Well done Ashley, you are going places, keep up the amazing work!
In recognition of the consistently amazing feedback received on 13 projects, being a finalist in a global governance competition, and the high scores in your assessments. Well done Valda, you consistently deliver well.
In recognition of achieving a 90% average on 2 front-end assessments whilst being the farm administrator, and getting glowing feedback from a client who admitted he was a difficult customer, as well as acknowledging your 10 years in SharePoint. Well done Sudesh, the care
you show to everyone around you is truly inspiring.
In recognition of the complex systems you are building and maintaining, and turning ScarePoint into SharePoint for a notoriously difficult audience, as well as your fairness and enthusiasm for what you do. Well done Armand, you are a true asset to your company.
In recognition of the great feedback you received from business, and just popping in to check on them from time to time. That is service above
and beyond for a developer. Well done Maxwell, keep going from strength to strength.
