...and the evals are there to prove it. About 90% of the attendees gave him all 5s and there were several comments like "best user group presenter I have seen". This isn't good for me since I have spoken several times for the UG, but Miguel is a very polished presenter and he knows how to relate the materials he has produced to all types in the audience. The presentation covered Server Controls and even with 4 people in the audience of 40 raising their hands when Miguel asked the question of who has written a Server Control, the upper majority of the audience were on their toes the entire presentation.
Yesterday, John and I interviewed a young graduate for an internship position we are creating for GWB. We are in need of fresh templates and some code for the site to bring it into the next life of blogging. Back to the point, this was his very first user group meeting and the first thing he said to me after the meeting was, "Are all the meetings like this, cause it was very cool". This was great feedback from a first time UG attendee, so if you are looking for your INETA speaker of the year, I would HIGHLY suggest you have Miguel come to your group.
