Blog It Forward – Jason Cao

If you’re reading this, then you’re probably already familiar with Moshe Naveh‘s Blog It Forward Challenge. (Otherwise, you’ve just stumbled onto a really fun initiative that could change your level of engagement in this community. 😉 )
My name is Jason Cao, and I’m a Community Manager on SCN.
Allow me to start with a brief explanation for my  recent absence from SCN. In the past 6 months I’ve had a unique opportunity to take on the role of LEAN Leadership Business Coach at SAP.  This means that rather than making a difference for SAP from the outside-in, I had a chance to make a difference from the inside-out, by working with SAP’s Development managers in Vancouver on enhancing leadership beliefs and behaviours.
When I heard Moshe explain the Blog It Forward (BIF) challenge in our team meeting, I knew it would be a hit with this community!  🙂   Thanks to Moshe and Kirsten Sutton for blogging it forward to me. Now it’s my turn to answer some questions – and I’ve been asked some really interesting BIF questions. I’m choosing to answer Kirsten’s questions by video below.
I’d like to blog it forward to the following people:
  • Don Wakefield, who heads up Development in SAP Vancouver and always has many wonderful stories to share
  • Steve Unger, who is doing some amazing things in his life and fulfilling one of his life goals (hopefully, he’ll share this with us)
  • Woody Nguyen, who would like to join the BIF challenge, and is based in my birthplace of Vietnam.
  • Salina Siu, who I hope will share some of her accomplishments with social media.
And also blog it forward to Brian Suk, Dennis RuffingJohn BartonTrevor CrandallBenjamin Wilk, Grace ChungJens Obermann, Kathleen Dewan, Matt Championmike trusioTim Hoebeek, Tracy Wiese, Yasmine Abdallah, Amanda Cousins, Bjoern Ganzhorn, Christopher Spruell, Dave Finnan, David Petranek, Derrick Nedzel, Dion DiCristofaro, Donnie McMillan, Douglas Hoover, Geoff Trembley, George Nashed, James O’Donnell, Jeff Brown, Joe Infantino, Jonas Laucys, Julie Mayhew, Julie Price, Kathleen Smith, Koshy Vadaketh, Kyle Delaney, Lloyd Burke, Mark Carlson, Mark Schultz, Melissa Michalke, Paul Hearmon, Ravi Patel, Robin Howard, Sandy Price, Simer Grewal, Steven Bologna, Thomas Wright, Tony Alvarez, Travis Price, Trevor Crandall, William Walter, Alexander Prus, Anthony Tranchita, Brian Dahowski, Carsten Boekholt, Chad Wiech, Charles Convery, Christopher Megies, David Hoeffler, Dominik Fitterer, Dwayne DeSylvia, Malan Etienne, Glenn WhiteHaresh Calcuttawala, Heejung Park, Jennifer Ford, Maik Schmalstich, Michelle Ng, Nicolle Gurule SternbergerRobin Whitaker, Sarang Brijmohan Gupta, Scott Latchaw, Sebastian Schmitz, Kannan Ramaswamy, Jitendra Kansal, Satish Kumar Balasubramanian   …more to come!

    • Hi Tim,

      Thanks! It was easy to create and upload the video to the BIF post. I hope others will do it as well, if they're up for it. 🙂

  • Great post Jason. I knew I could count on you to put your heart and innovation into this and ta da! A video post - terrific. Thanks for answering the questions and inspiring others.

    • Thanks for your encouragement Kirsten! This post was really fun to do, and I really hope others that I've Blog It Forward to will sustain the momentum of a really great initiative.

      I've really learned a lot about members of our community! 🙂

    • Thanks Sue! I think my mimicking talent peaked at 12 (just before high school). With a 7 and 10 year-old now, I think I'm getting my second-wind. 😆

    • Hi Jake, thanks! How does that phrase go? "Imitation is the greatest form of flattery?" Too bad my parents neither thought of it as flattery, nor a skill. 😛

  • Hi Jason,

    I have written my first blog "Blog It Forward - Kannan Ramaswamy" and saved it. Waiting eagerly for you to blog me forward 🙂



  • Hi Jason,

    Thank you so much for sharing about you and your experience. It was very interesting and different to read you BIF. Keep up the good work. Thanks for sharing exceptional blog. Keep rocking and sharing new innovation and ideas. I love to read your blogs and happy to comment it.

    Have a nice day!

    • Hi Hari,

      Thank you first of all for following my blog posts, and also for your positive feedback and words of encouragement.

      As a fellow SCN blogger, I think you will agree that comments and feedback from our community members trumps other numbers like blog-views. Feedback and engagement keeps us going, and striving to write even better blogs. Many members also voiced their agreement in the Comments area of my post Between You and Me: Think-Blog-Think

      I'm curious, what keeps you blogging?



      • Hi Jason,

        Good Day!

        You are welcome. Thanks for asking interesting question to me. I am happy to answer to your question. There are multiple websites we can use for blogging but I dont think like SCN you can share SAP knowledge and technical skills. SCN website plays an important role for developing skills and sharing knowledge. I think its very useful for us and others to gain and share knowledge. 🙂

        Also it helps us to motivate freshers!

        Advanced wishes for your Christmas!

        • Hi Hari,

          Thank you for your response! Your contributions and willingness to share your SAP knowledge on SCN is much appreciated! I also agree that when we each speak up, it sets a good example for new members to this community to do the same. 🙂

          Happy holidays!
