TeamsFest becomes Teams Nation – and returns May 12th 2021

Having just finished the event a few weeks ago, Vesku, Adam, Chris and I had the opportunity to catch up before our monthly user group to have a look at the figures. We had over 1300 unique attendees at TeamsFest which was twice as large as our last event, and from over 300 feedbacks we received a speaker rating of 4.65/5 and an event score of 4.7/5 which is incredible considering we ran 85 sessions in a single day. We believe it to have been the largest amount of dedicated Teams breakout sessions ever attempted in a single day by any event, including Microsoft Ignite

Microsoft Ignite 2020: My Sessions, 10 for Teams and Everything Else I’d Recommend

It seems bizarre that Ignite 2019 was only ten months ago. So much has happened. The world has changed. And yet - it seems like only yesterday I was getting on that bus heading down to the OCCC to speak for the first time. Now, all things considered what struck me the most - the insight if you will - was that Ignite is more about people than about tech. What? Ignite? The biggest Microsoft tech conference of the year? Yes. You see the thing is, past the tech each and every one of us are all in this together. We love technology. We love, as technologists, figuring things out and seeing things work. We love delivering and bringing to life technology which will make businesses more secure and more productive whilst making the lives of our colleagues and friends, and users a little easier. And whilst Ignite 2020 won't be in person - a shame because I loved the thought of meeting up with everyone in the French Quarter of New Orleans for some gumbo, it'll be just as personal. This event is for you. You are part of a community of millions coming together from every country and continent on the planet

Best of luck with your renewals MVP’s

For those of you who didn't know, it's the annual MVP renewal this Wednesday. July 1st is when all MVP's go through their annual renewal and learn whether they will remain in the program for another year. Many will make it. Some, sadly, will not. Some will have chosen throughout the last 12 months to pursue a different path whilst others may no longer have the time or opportunity to commit to it

TeamsFest is coming soon – here’s 10 reasons why you should join us

I can't believe that TeamsFest is nearly here - I really can't. It seems like only yesterday that Adam, Vesa and I started the call for speakers. This was back in december when we all felt like there was a certain luxury of time. Yet this year has been insanely busy - and I guess we should have known better given we did this back in October for Oktoberfest! Organising a conference has been one of the most rewarding things we've ever done. It's exhausting! - but there's nothing quite like it. That's why we wanted to do it again. We love Teams, we love the community, and we really wanted to bring some of the most passionate and best minds in the field together for a day of celebrating what it is that we love doing. If you love teams, love community and are thinking about joining us then here is 10 reasons why I think you should join us
