I was recently very honoured and flattered to have received the “Lifetime Achievement Award” Speaker Award from the UKOUG. I have only managed to get to the excellent UKOUG Tech conferences on a couple of occasions, so it was both a thrill and a surprise to be so honoured.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it for my third visit this year and so was unable to be there to accept this award.

However in a sign of true dedication from the UKOUG President, Martin Widlake has come all the way over to beautiful Canberra, Australia just to present the award personally to me (OK, he might have plans do a couple of other things during his visit to Australia).

With plans to run the UKOUG Tech conference next year in Brighton, I’ll have to try and make it for my third visit, if only to annoy Mark Rittman when Crystal Palace no doubt beat Brighton when we next meet…
