Panda CMO Heather Newman's latest news - Microsoft MVP, User Groups, Upcoming SharePoint/Office 365 Events and Women in Technology.
From November 13-16, our European SharePoint community gathered in beautiful Dublin, Ireland. This was my third time attending and speaking at the European SharePoint Conference. This was my second trip to Dublin, Ireland where I studied at Trinity College many years ago. I was thrilled to come back and see how the city has changed. I got a great dose of Irish warmth, food, hospitality and “Craic” (the Gaelic word for fun and enjoyment). I am always highly impressed with our ESPC event organizers, the quality content, our community and vibrant speakers. I am always grateful for the opportunity to speak at this event.
I love taking a bite out of the Big Apple, every chance I get. What a wonderful event last month at SPS NYC. Big thanks to our organizers! It was terrific to get back to the Microsoft Times Square offices and see so many old friends and new faces.
I presented my Office Planner session, One Card at a Time – Leverage Office 365 Planner to Plan Your SharePoint End User Adoption Campaign. New features in Office 365 make it very easy to visually organize teamwork, plans, tasks, and files. However, as we’ve stressed time and again on this blog, the right people and right processes must be in place before using any technology to drive a project.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending SPS Washington DC, was great to be in our nation’s capital and meet with old friends, strategic partners and new companies attending this important community event to learn more about the challenges and opportunities we all face in transforming companies’ online user experiences. It was great to staff our booth with our partner Mindsharp along with our head of sales, Don Greger who lives in the D.C. area. Yes, he makes a very tall panda.
Last week I spent the whole week in Texas visiting Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. I had the pleasure of presenting at SharePoint Saturday San Antonio. It was great to meet with old friends, strategic partners and new companies attending this important community event to learn more about the challenges and opportunities we all face in transforming companies’ online user experiences.
