2. MVP Global Summit 2020
If you're one of the select few fortunate enough to be awarded the prestigious Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award and are an active MVP, you would have scored a sweet invite to the MVP Global Summit 2020 to be held at Microsoft's Redmond campus and Bellevue this coming March. This is the highlight event for MVPs and is the one time in the year where MVPs truly get to connect, exchange ideas and build lasting friendships within the MVP community. We know that many of the MVPs out there are also ardent Humans of IT advocates, so stay tuned while we figure out how to best harness all this excitement and energy in building up our MVPs to be Humans of IT ambassadors out in the world of tech. Watch this space!
