Speaking at Microsoft Ignite 2018

Like last year, I’ll be speaking at Microsoft Ignite 2018 in Orlando, Florida – just shy of one month from now.

If you have a look at my speaker profile page, you’ll find I’m co-presenting and taking part in a number of sessions:

BRK2160 – The time for Teams: Scenarios to realize the value of Microsoft Teams (co-presenting with Karuana Gatimu from Microsoft)

BRK1092 – Turn it all on in Office 365 – RE365 Debate (debate with fellow MVPs: Alistair Pugin, Daniel Glenn, Darrell Webster, Liz Sundet, Steven Collier, Susan Hanley, and Tracy Van Der Schyff)

BRK2287 – Making Microsoft Teams work without understanding Information Architecture (co-presenting with fellow MVP Alistair Pugin)

MUP2008 – Learning through sharing: The new way to build your community (a community meetup with fellow MVPs: Alistair Pugin,
Daniel Glenn, and Darrell Webster)

BRK3282 – Quick wins are the new currency in Microsoft 365 (co-presenting with fellow MVP Tracy Van Der Schyff)


If you’re attending – I hope you’ll be able to make it to one or more of the sessions. If not, I expect some of them will be recorded; however I’ll also be streaming them as a Microsoft Teams live event on the day – so follow me on Twitter to get the links.

Let’s connect at Microsoft Summit Sydney!

If you’re planning on attending Microsoft Summit in Sydney between the 14-17 there’s a couple of ways you can catch me.

During the Partner Summit (Tuesday & Wednesday) I’ll be at the Exclaimer booth chatting with partners and demonstrating how they can improve their customer email experience and make some money along the way. I’ll be there the whole two days so if you’re around come past!



During the Tech Summit (Thursday & Friday) I’ll be delivering a couple of sessions:

– An overview of Microsoft Teams architecture, including security & compliance features (this is a session from Ignite 2017 that I’ll be delivering on behalf of Microsoft)

– Groups & Teams: Friend or foe (this is my own session from Ignite 2017 that was very positively reviewed)


Outside of those two sessions you’ll be able to find me either at the Exclaimer or Microsoft Teams booths. If you can’t find me, send me a tweet to @LoryanStrant and we’ll locate each other!

I won’t be there on the Friday, as I’m going camping and will be offline. 🙂

Let’s connect!
