Great success at our ‘Maximising SharePoint and Office 365’ event in Letchworth

Yesterday, we hosted one of our monthly Microsoft events in Letchworth – . With a packed-out room and lots of eager delegates, we’re happy to say it was a resounding success!

From construction & property, insurance, to engineering, we had a fantastic mix of industries attending the event. (We always make sure we know what industry types are attending so we can tailor the seminar appropriately!)

The main focus of the event was how companies (no matter how big or small) can adopt Office 365 and SharePoint into their existing systems. Many of our guests already had a version of SharePoint, but weren’t too sure on how to leverage it in the best way possible for their needs.

We understand that every organisation is different, and they face very different issues. Our event helped highlight the common (and uncommon!) challenges a lot of companies have to face. The session gives honest insight into what companies can be doing, from using certain applications (and avoiding others!) to how they should regard and implement governance on technology. We also discussed how companies will be affected by GDPR next year. You can read more about that here.

Our events always give honest and knowledgeable insight

Dave Nixon, our Microsoft Practice Manager, gave a great run down of how companies should look at their Information Architecture. A top tip from Dave is to think about what you don’t want SharePoint to do, rather than the opposite.


The event set off some lightbulbs for those thinking about changing the way they work but weren’t sure which tools to use. This is where Office 365 can come in. Our Principal Consultant, John Votaw, gave us an easy to digest summary of the good (and not so good) apps within Office 365 and how you can incorporate them into your business to make your life easier. If you’d like an honest insight into what Office 365’s apps are all about – download our free eBook here.

The seminars aren’t just about sitting in front of a PowerPoint presentation for hours. During the sessions, we encourage discussions and questions for our consultants. Even then over a delicious lunch there’s an opportunity to talk about their biggest issues and how they might tackle them.

You’ll be delighted to know that our next free event will be taking place on Thursday 9th November in Bristol. You can register for the event here.
