It has been going on from 2008 and it was the first event of its kind. Over the years I have enjoyed every single event, as there are many live tours of intranets, and you get to hear from many interesting people in the field. Actually, one interview inspired me to work six weeks from Spain some years ago, as my work can be done from any place. By now all of us know that, but at that time I still had to convince my then manager that working from another location would not make any difference to my contacts in China, the USA, Sweden or Brazil. 🙂
Why am I telling you this?
Because there will be a lot of real-life Microsoft365 in Digital Workplace 24 Live, whether it is SharePoint, Teams, Yammer or all of them. And you will see it from the business perspective, not “just” from the functionality perspective that we Microsoft365 geeks usually focus on. 🙂
Which tours to expect?
I do not have the full details for each tour, but you can expect Microsoft365 aspects in at least the following:
- Velux who have an Office365 digital workplace. They have a lovely over the top introduction video!
- KBC group
- Duke Energy
- HAVI, who had a nice intranet introduction video in my collection, but that has been removed 😦
- St. John Ambulance
- ZSL – Zoological Society of London
And I expect there will be more but those have not been published on the schedule yet.
Besides, Microsoft folks Morten Dal and Brad Grissom will also be studio guests. And if you need more reasons, this post lists twelve reasons to attend. Why not organize a viewing party for your team or be a Tweeter-in-residence?
So, what’s keeping you? You can register here – and did I mention it is free?
Please note: I do freelance work for Digital Workplace Group. I have written this post because I genuinely love the event and would like to spread the word. I have not been been asked to do it, nor am I paid for it.
