Leveraging Good User Mojo to Simplify your IT Day-to-Day

If we have ten or more attendees we'll be raffling off two O'Reilly Media books so bring a friend!

Keeping end users happy can be one of the toughest parts of an IT pro's day-to-day. Join Matt Simmons to learn some tips and tricks on how you can avoid fear and loathing of users (never a good thing!) and leverage good user mojo to go further in your company and career.

You'll walk away knowing how to:

• Identify your customers and make sure they have what they need (without breaking yourself in the process)

• Prevent customer service avalanches by not letting problems snowball

• Enrich relationships with your users so that they trust you enough to tell you when something’s wrong

Plus, enjoy some stories from Matt on how he's screwed up in the past (and the times he’s gotten things right).

Matt Simmons is a Network, Virtualization, and Research Cluster Administrator at Northeastern University and is currently serving a term on the LOPSA Board of Directors. He will be at SpiceWorld 2014 in Austin, TX delivering this same talk. Matt is very active in the sysadmin community on Reddit, LOPSA, and elsewhere. You can get caught up on his blog here.
