Raymond and I are inspiring a new batch of High School students again this year

Just like the previous three years, Raymond and I have scheduled another ‘Inspire Me’ meeting with High School students of the Graafschap College in Doetinchem, the Netherlands.

On Friday January 13th, we’re presenting two 1-hour presentation as part of the last year of studies for High School students aspiring to become Systems Administrators.


About our presentation

We will be discussing the concepts of Modern Management to these students.
While their books don’t cover most of the Bring-Your-Own, Choose-Your-Own, Windows 10, Intune or Azure stuff, our presentation is chock-full with it. Or course, we’re not just theoretically explaining it, but also demo’ing the most intriguing aspects of claims-based authentication, hybrid identity and leveraging current investment, all based on one relatively simple case, they might get asked on their first job as a Systems Administrator:

Can you provide secure access to our organizations resources for both trusted and untrusted devices, used by both employees and others, without the need for firewalls, and, of course, for the lowest possible (initial) cost?

The fun part of our presentation is that after several of these sessions, the students rebuild one the shown implementation and have to explain how it works to their teachers. In the past years, our implementation got mimicked quite often, which is the biggest compliment they can give us!


About the High School

Logo Graafschap CollegeWe are invited by the two teachers as part of the MBO Level 4 ICT Management Year 3 curriculum at the Graafschap College in Doetinchem, the Netherlands.

Personally, I feel honored to contribute to making the education of these ICT Professionals-to-be more future proof by telling them about Enterprise Mobility and Azure. Their textbooks don’t contain this information yet, so I feel getting it presented to them by two passionate Microsoft MVPs is the next best thing.


I’m looking forward to it again! Glimlach
