About Me

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little bit better.

It’s always difficult to share who you are with someone else, especially through a bunch of static words on a page. So before I begin I just wanted to say that the best way to get to know me is by engaging me through my social networks (twitter , facebook , linkedin ) or in person. I absolutely love meeting new people and have no doubt that we could both learn a tremendous amount from one another.

To give you a quick picture of who I am I suppose I could start with the fact that I have spoken on a number of different topics at technology conferences, community events, and corporate events. To learn more about my speaking, interviews, or presentations visit this page. I also try my hardest to share the things I learn and know with colleagues, peers, and the public. If you are interested in reading some of the books, whitepapers, or articles I have written, or if you are interested in watching an interview, webinar, or hearing a podcast be sure to visit this page.

Over the past 10+ years I have had the pleasure of working extensively with Microsoft Technologies such as Office 365, Azure, & SharePoint as an end user, developer, administrator, architect, business analyst, and consultant. In this time I defined, architected, developed, and implemented hundreds of Microsoft solutions from small implementations on a single server, to 80,000+ user implementations in international organizations.

This has resulted in me working with truly fantastic people who I admire, and respect for their dedication, intelligence, and generosity. I absolutely love learning, and have found that people seem to love teaching, sharing, and helping as much as I do. As a result I have a habit of getting involved in a great many community events which always leave me a bit smarter, stronger, more humbled and better off.

Some of the communities I have been/still am involved with (as an supporter, organizer, pr lead, VP, etc) are:

You can probably tell I am pretty passionate about things like technology, communication, social media, psychology, personal growth/development, and business from what I have listed above. I would also absolutely love to hear from you if you have questions, feedback or ideas.

Hoping to help,
Richard Harbridge

Great presentation at the susQtech conference in Reston, VA. It really opened my eyes to a lot of things that are never even considered throughout the road map of applications intended to be SharePoint capable.

I have been using SharePoint consultants but I am in need of a full time Sharepoint Developer. Where do they all hang out at?

Local SharePoint user groups are a good avenue for finding some SharePoint developers. There are bound to be a couple near you.

Alternatively you can also find developers through recruiters and with the current demand for these kinds of resources that might just be your best bet.
