ServiceNow MVP Program is Relaunching for 2024

by snnerd

As a ServiceNow platform nerd and enthusiast, I’ve been really proud to have been accepted into the ServiceNow MVP cohort for the past 3 years. The program is continuing to evolve, with a recent announcement that the program is being relaunched.

I wanted to share my story of how I got there. It all started with applying to speak at the 2016 ServiceNow CreatorCon conference, to which I was accepted. The call for content next year has just closed, but there will be another opportunity when the general sessions call for content opens.

Speaking at CreatorCon as part of Knowledge16

At the conference party, I met Steven Bell who was wearing a ServiceNow MVP shirt. I recognised him from the ServiceNow community and had a chat. I was inspired and made it a goal of mine to one day be wearing that t-shirt.

It took 4 years of blog posts, local user group presentations, content sharing and further knowledge presentations to make the cut, joining the 2020 Community MPV cohort. Along the way I realised it was the journey, not the destination, that was most fulfilling. I have grown massively as a professional during that time.

My first entry into the MPV program

“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now”

With the relaunch of the program, there has never been a better time to start the journey. Like a tree growing to the sky, it won’t happen overnight – it probably won’t happen for a few years. I sowed the seeds 7 years ago, and have risen from being a junior developer to a industry recognised MVP, running my own blog, and maintaining a ServiceNow project which is one of the top 10 most downloaded on the Share Portal. While I planted the seeds long ago – if you haven’t started your journey as a content creator or contributor yet – the second best time to start is NOW!
