New Blog Site

July 5, 2009 at 8:05 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Hi, I’ve had a blog site for around 2 years now and I was using Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 as my Blogging tool.  It has been a long time since I blogged on that site properly, so most of the content has since been replaced with more up-to-date content on other blog sites.  I therefore decided to start from scratch again with this site.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am a SharePoint Developer/Trainer who has spent most of my career as a trainer.  Since 1995 I was a Lotus Notes/Access developer for FEDEX, I then moved into training and taught subjects such as Lotus Notes Development, Visual Basic (V4+), C#, SQL, and then SharePoint from SharePoint 2003.  I formed Combined Knowledge (A SharePoint Training Company) with Steve Smith & Craig Carpenter who I had already worked with for many years.  Combined Knowledge grew to be very successful, but I wanted to follow an amition of having my own software company and experience living abroad. I therefore teamed up with Nick Swan (SharePoint MVP) and we formed Lightning Tools which specialises in Web Part and tool development for SharePoint.  I help run this company from a small office on Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Recently Nick & I have authored a book which is the only book of its kind on The Business Data Catalog.  You can purchase the book from

Nick & I joined forces with Robert Foster (SharePoint MVP) in June 2008 to offer a PodCast on SharePoint.  We have great laughs providing this valuable content to our listeners which has recently seen over 120,000 downloads.  You can listen to the Podcast by logging onto

I hope you enjoy this site and get valuable information from it, please feel free to provide me feedback on
