Join us for a night of discovering more about Office 365 and SharePoint.

Session 1 – Microsoft Teams: The Centre of Your Business

The growth in adoption of Microsoft Teams has been greater and faster than any of us imagined. Fuelled by the merging of features from Skype for Business and further fed by the rapid uptake by the user base, Teams will soon be (if not already) a tool you use every day. But it provides so much more than just a home for collaborating with your colleagues. It can be the hub for your business processes. This session looks at a variety of techniques for integrating your business processes into Teams, and hopefully you’ll go away with some good ideas for how you could use Teams (and it’s friends) to be more efficient about how you go about your work.

Charlie Lee is a skilled and highly proficient Consultant, Architect and Developer with many years of experience building business solutions for major clients using Microsoft Technologies, particularly Office 365 and SharePoint. He has been developing solutions with Microsoft technologies for over 18 years and has specialised in SharePoint since 2007.

Keen on open source initiatives and sharing his skills and experience, Charlie works as a Principal Consultant for Cielo Costa.


Session 2 – Policy Tracking and the Graph API, by Kieran Toon

An increasingly common request from our customers is to Track reads of policies by their users. In this session, we will be looking at ways of doing this by using SharePoint document libraries, Flow and also seeing if the Graph API is up to the job.

Kieran got interested in SharePoint when its functionality overtook that of an in-house written document management system and intranet. Since 2006, Kieran has led the implementation of SharePoint projects in many different guises, from standard intranets to estate management systems and New Product Introduction systems. Now working at Crimson, a Microsoft Gold partner based in Birmingham, projects now frequently utilise different technologies such as Dynamics 365 and Azure with SharePoint just a component of a wider system.


The customary SharePint will take place at The Physician, Harborne Road, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 3DH.


Please be aware that there is no parking directly at the venue, however there are other parking options locally.
