Siem Reap, Cambodia

A few months ago I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a great training course that was being run in Siem Reap, Cambodia.  The course was split across what was coming in the next couple of versions of Veeam software releases and Mastering Technical Sales with a guest presenter of John Care.  The what’s new sessions were Top Secret, however most of the content has been shared publicly although there a few more things to come.
