Become an Office 365 Adoption Expert at SharePoint Conference 2020

SharePoint Conference 2020 Office 365 End User Adoption Workshop graphic

We all want to have our teams be more productive inside our business applications – simply turning on an application and letting employees “figure it out” leaves many people feeling frustrated, and they will go back to using the things they know well.

Do you currently have an adoption plan, process, or a campaign to roll out new applications and introduce new team members to what you already have? If so, is it working well?

Either way, there is always room for improvement and different perspectives. Adoption campaigns should always be focused on the value that employees will get from the tools.

Learn from adoption experts in a hands-on workshop.

Become the Expert of You – Power Skills for Personal Development

We hear the term “soft skills” as the definition of personal attributes that enable us to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people. Top soft skills employers look for are leadership, teamwork, communication, creativity, work ethic, problem-solving, and self-confidence. However, there is nothing soft about mastering these skills; there is “strength” in the practice of developing these “Power” skills that are more intangible but critical to our working and interacting with the people around us effectively. Join Microsoft MVP, and CMO of Content Panda, Heather Newman as she takes you through power skills that are essential to each of us becoming stronger employees but also better humans. Attendees will walk away with learning about the most critical investment you can make, the one in one’s self.

Why Our Words Matter, Flipping the Script on Relating to Each Other

As we all look at diversity, inclusion, and belonging in our workplaces, there can be high emotions, deep-seated fears, passion, and sometimes anger. There are a pain and suffering in our world that comes with being held back, tamped down, passed over and abused because of race, religion, gender, sexual orientations, and disabilities. How we speak to one another, what words we use, and how we ask questions to learn are all important parts of this journey. Join Microsoft MVP and CMO of Content Panda as we look at how we talk to each other, what words and phrases we need to leave behind and how to ask questions to find answers along with each other not against each other in the realm of diversity and inclusion. Attendees will walk away with real-life examples on how to flip this script in our workplaces.
