Given the title of this post, in the interest of full disclosure, I should note upfront that while what you're about to read was written this morning during the event, I'm only just now getting a chance to post it. I should also mention that there will be lots more coverage of today's event coming your way over the next week or so, including extensive blog coverage, photo galleries, and videos. If you couldn't join us in person today for Bamboo's inaugural SharePoint Leadership Conference, stay tuned, because with our coverage we aim to make you feel as if you were.
The venue for today's event was House of Sweden, right on the waterfront in Georgetown on a picture-perfect fall day in Washington, D.C. 120 attendees had registered for our event, which brought together a compelling lineup of SharePoint thought leaders to speak on key topics relating to effective collaboration in SharePoint.
As we setup for the event this morning, welcoming early-arriving attendees for breakfast and coffee in the beautiful glass-enclosed lobby area overlooking the Potomac and the turning leaves on Roosevelt Island, the stage was set for an action-packed agenda that would take us through midafternoon.
Over the course of the morning and early afternoon, we would heard from Bamboo Chairman of the Board Anders Johnsson along with a murderer's row of world-renowned presenters, including keynote speaker Dan Holme, Mark Miller, Sadie Van Buren, Barry Jinks, Tim Cermak, Rob Manfredi, and, direct from Microsoft with a guided tour of Office and SharePoint 2013, Ed Hild.
Again, stay tuned over the days ahead —and throughout next week—as we'll be bringing you comprehensive coverage of SharePoint Leadership Forum 2012 ... because that's the Bamboo Way.

John Anderson joined Bamboo Solutions as Manager of Content & Syndication in May of 2008 after a 12-year career at AOL. New to SharePoint at the time of his hiring, John was tasked with creating a new blog for the just-launched Bamboo Nation community in which he would document his daily SharePoint learning process. Thus was born the end user-centric SharePoint Blank, for which John authored 200 posts within a year, and which he continues to write today (albeit much more sporadically). Currently serving as Managing Editor, John sets the tone for Bamboo Nation as its lead blogger, and oversees content across Bamboo properties.
