Peter O'Dowd
Windows Server MVP, Exchange Server
Blade
 
Peter is a Windows Server MVP for Exchange Server.  He is well known and respected figure worldwide and often utilised by Microsoft to ?train the trainers' in Windows Server products.  He was recently contracted by Microsoft USA to develop labs for the internal course “Exchange Server 2003 Support Best Practices” and went on to deliver the material to MCS Premier Support worldwide.
 
Peter works for blade, http://www.blade.net.nz, a New Zealand company that prides itself with innovation embracing Microsoft technologies.
 
He is a regular presenter for events such as TechEd, both overseas in here in New Zealand.
 
He is also a very active MCT and, for the last 8 years, has taught the Microsoft Official Curriculum, specialising in Windows Server 2003, Security, and Exchange Server 2003.
 
When Peter isn't presenting or teaching, he works on real world projects including Systems Architect role for large project teams performing designs and implementations of Active Directory and Exchange 2003 around the world.
 
One of his Active Directory designs was for a UK bank consisting of 27,000 users distributed over 1200 sites. He takes great delight in providing elegant, non expensive solutions for his customers.  "It doesn't have to be hard, keep it simple!" is often heard reverberating around the corridors where he is working.
 
Peter has been quoted as saying "Give me a wet piece of string and I'll get replication happening across it!” He has also been known to play records during his presentations from his previous career as a rock star.  When he's not working, he enjoys fishing from his boat in New Zealand or playing the guitar noisily.
