There are lots of training events coming up in the weeks ahead. SharePoint consulting firm DataLan is hosting a series of events up and down the Eastern Seaboard, focusing on the most common business needs addressed by SharePoint 2010, including document management, workflow, business intelligence and more. Registration for all the events is now open.

Meanwhile, down in Washington D.C., Innovative-e is sponsoring a work-management event for executives using Microsoft SharePoint and Project. Decision-makers often have limited understanding of the benefits of the platforms they choose, and this one-day “Executive Insights” event is designed to address that. Innovative-e’s Dux Raymond Sy will be present, as will Mindsharp’s Bill English and Microsoft’s Arpan Shah. It’s by invitation only, but you can request an invitation on their website.

Finally, there’s a SharePoint Saturday this weekend in a unique location: Ramallah, in the Palestinian West Bank. Joel Oleson and Paul Swider are among the experts scheduled to make the Middle East trip to present sessions there. Closer to home, there are also events in Vancouver, B.C., and Boston.
