Leading Practices for Planning a SharePoint Environment

I was recently hosted by CIPS Saskatchewan to give my Leading Practices for Planning and Implementing a SharePoint Environment presentation.  It was  a great time and I really enjoyed giving it.  I will also be presenting the session in October at the Victoria SharePoint User Group and at SharePoint Saturday Redmond.  I have updated the slide deck somewhat so wanted to provide it to everyone for them to download.

Thank you to all the organizations for allowing me to present this session and thank you to everyone who came out and attended.  I hope you gained something from the presentation.
