Honestly, looking back over my last 5 years I cant say that this was part of the master plan. Five years ago I arrived in New Zealand “fresh off the boat”. Ready to take on new things I never anticipated (or planned) a career change. You see I was a a voice guy back then. The closest I got to IT was when we pointed fingers at each other when VOIP packets were getting dropped..
But Today, well today its all different as I have one foot in each pen. Thats been most useful with my attempts to understand Lync. I must be doing OK as I have been Awarded MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional)
