How to avoid icebergs in Office 365 – session from Microsoft Ignite 2019

Recently at Microsoft Ignite, I co-presented with my wife Megan Strant on some of the challenges we’ve come across over our many years working with Office 365 across hundreds of customers of all sizes, industries, and countries.

You can catch the audio-only recording of our 20 minute theatre session online as well as download the slides here: https://myignite.techcommunity.microsoft.com/sessions/80262

AvePoint provided a great writeup of the session here: https://www.avepoint.com/blog/office-365/office-365-avoiding-icebergs/

What I would say is that a lot of the points we cover may seem obvious, but I am personally alarmed on a regular basis how many times I come across organisations that fit into many of the covered topics.

 

5 Microsoft 365 Teamwork Tools for IT Pros

At Microsoft Ignite the Tour in Sydney I presented a session showing a number of tools available in Microsoft 365 and IT pros need to know about.

Having worked with a number of organisations in the past couple of years as an independent consultant there were several that jumped to mind; some old, some relatively new, and some fresh off the production line.

I try to be interactive with the audience during my sessions, and so for each section asked who in the audience had heard about what I was about to show. To my dismay, very few hands went up.

I’ve shared the slides here in the hope it will help some Office 365 admins. To some, this will be preaching to the choir. To others, there are some things here that might not be known.

Unfortunately there’s no narration, however here is my recap:
