I am a huge fan of Office 365 & Microsoft Teams and have nearly 20 years of I.T. training and support experience, with the past four years spent working with Office 365 and Microsoft Teams.


Skills and experience include the responsibilities of a lead trainer; production of training materials, train the trainer, user community engagement, supporting non-technical project team members and end-user training. I take my commitment to agile work and remote training delivery seriously; a dedicated home office with twin computers and twin super-fast broadband connections ensure I can always deliver.


I am passionate about sharing everything I learn and am one of the main sources of Office 365 updates in my current organisation of 8000 staff. I use my blog (including a monthly round-up of Teams updates affecting end users), Twitter and Facebook to share my own knowledge along with the best Office 365 content from other experts around the world.
