VMware #vExpert 2014

I’m really pleased to learn that I have been recognised as a VMware vExpert again.  Thanks for Corey Romero continuing efforts with this programme.  It’s nice to be recognised for the extra effort and time that I and other fellow vExperts put in outside of their usual working like.  The VMware community as a friendly and welcoming group of people.
