We don’t have a SAP Mentor of the month program, but that shouldn’t stop us from calling one out when one deserves it. Right now it is Gregor Wolf. If I hurry this post will be directly above his latest blog.
Where to start? He was there almost from the beginning. He wrote his first Weblog in August 2004. Was the first one to cover CRM, long before SAP PM woke up to the power of SDN.
He was always there with sessions and support at TechEd, SDN Meets Labs, SDN- and Community Day starting in Munich in 2004 already.
As I wrote before Craig and I were sitting together at the last day of TechEd Munich and we thought about how to bring even more excitement to Bangalore the coming month. There was Gregor hanging out in the clubhouse and we thought how cool it would be to have him there.
We asked him and after making some phone calls to free up his calendar he was totally excited about it.
It was great having him there, he was totally part of the team. We are paying for his flight and hotel and he promised spontaneously to give half of it to the School Lunch Program. (Bummer that we don’t have a matching program.)
The unfortunate thing is, that this trip may have put him over the edge. He told me that he had back problems since the beginning of the year. Now during TechEd Bangalore it was really hurting a lot more. Especially when he was standing.
If you follow Gregor on Twitter you will know that he had a MRT (Magnetic Resonance Tomography) to find out whether it is a slipped disc. I cross my fingers that it isn’t.
Even with his back pain he is currently at one of his clients in the north of Germany.
“Gute Besserung” get well soon Gregor wishes the whole SDN and BPX Team.
Now back to my vacation 😉
