I have many fond memories of Microsoft Inspire. Having attended Inspire the last two years its something I recommend to anyone should they have the opportunity and resources to do so. Yes, it's in Vegas, and yes it's super long days, next-to-no sleep and probably 20,000 plus steps a day. But you have to be there to experience it. It's a truly immersive experience beyond anything I thought it would be. And when I think of Inspire today, I don't particularly think of things like particular sessions, or even the speakers. I think of things like grabbing a bagel in the Tropicana on the way over the T, the route I usually took to get to the ballrooms through the Mandalay after getting off the monorail past the Luxor, or waiting in line for a cab at the Delano getting ready for a meeting at somewhere like the Aria. For me, Inspire is all about direction and logistics, evaluating how far we have come, understanding where we are all headed and how prepared we are to do so in that regard
I am off to Vegas on Friday - second time lucky to go to #MSInspire! As you may have guessed most of the sessions I will be attending will be on Microsoft Teams. I am not going to lie here - I have very much planned this from the start and you can follow me throughout the conference as I post on Twitter and blog on this site.
