Please join me in welcoming Grant Fritchey to the second edition of Asia’s largest SQL Conference, the one who needs no introduction in the SQL world, yet I want to take the privilege of introducing him to the SQL community in Asia!

Grant Fritchey, Product Evangelist for Redgate Software, is a Microsoft Data Platform MVP with more than 20 years of experience working with SQL Server and related technologies. Grant is the author of several books including SQL Server Query Performance Tuning (Apress, 2015) and SQL Server Execution Plans (Simpletalk Publishing, 2014).

He currently serves on the Board of Directors for PASS, the world leading non-profit organization for Data Platform education and networking, as the Executive Vice President.


Yes, Grant does not need an introduction to the SQL world – yet I just did the honors. It is a privilege to announce Grant as a pre-con & regular speaker at SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016.

Grant will be delivering one pre-conference seminar (full day training) and a couple of breakout sessions at SQLServerGeeks Annual Summit 2016 in DBA & Developer track. Grant is equally excited to be part of Asia’s largest SQL conference.
