crowd at Microsoft Tech Summit Sydney

Find me at Microsoft Summit Sydney 2017

Want to know a productivity hack to tidying up all those loose ends? – Schedule some time away from the office. There’s no motivation like an immovable deadline!

Next week I’m travelling to Sydney for three Microsoft events. This time I’ve booked an AirBnB and the family are coming with me. I’m looking forward to some quality time with them, when I’m not mingling with my tech friends.

You’ll find me:

Tues 14 Nov

Microsoft Partner Summit – I’ve got the red-eye flight in, so I’ll be clutching strong coffee all day. I’m attending as a guest of Microsoft to do some social reporting on their Partner conference, so follow me on Twitter for my coverage.

For more information on why I find these partner events so worthwhile, check out my article on the Microsoft Australia Partner Blog.

Wed 15 Nov

Microsoft Partner Summit – I’ll be attending sessions during day 2 of the event. In the evening, you’ll find me at the Partner Awards Celebration and then afterwards at the SkyKick party.

Thu 16 Nov

Microsoft Tech Summit – Now my workload ramps up, at this free two day event featuring local and international speakers, including many Microsoft names.

10:45am – I’m presenting a 15 min session on “5 tips for Microsoft Teams” in the Expo Theatre area of the main expo hall. Focussed on usability & adoption, there will be a quiz and chocolate!

12noon onwards – I get to hang out at the various Microsoft booths in the expo area, so this is the perfect time to come and say Hi and chat with me.

5:45pm – I’ll be in the sharing the stage in the expo area with Scott Ward and Dux Raymond Sy in an Ask the Experts session. For 20mins, you can ask your questions about Modern Workplaces, collaboration and technology adoption and we’ll try and help.

6:30pm – I’m attending Robert Crane‘s CIAOPS Patreon supporters dinner.

Fri 17 Nov

I’ve scheduled this day to show my family around Sydney.

Sat 18 Nov

Microsoft MVP Community Day – I’ll be at this  invitation-only event, catching up with my Australian MVP friends and planning how we can continue to help in our technical communities.

By Sunday, I’ll be a very tired zombie with a late checkout, heading back home to Brisbane.

Can’t wait for such a great week! For more information on Microsoft Summit, visit
