C5 Insight Managing Partner Geoff Ables will be making the keynote address at SharePoint Saturday located in the Virginia Beach Advanced Technology Center on January 11, 2020. The Virginia Beach event kicks off the 12th year of SharePoint Saturdays for Office 365 and SharePoint administrators, end users, architects, developers and other professionals that work with Microsoft Technologies. For more information and registration details, visit https://www.spsevents.org/event/virginiabeach2020.
Ables will be presenting the keynote, “Creating a People-Centric Company with Office 365.” He will provide a visionary look into the future of work and a practical guide for getting there using Office 365. Ables shares what people-centric looks like, with case studies highlighting how big data, analytics, processes, collaboration and culture need to align. Transformation is possible, but technology alone is not the solution. Attendees will learn what differentiates companies that succeed with transforming customer and employee engagement, from those who never get past the struggle and how leaders are using Office 365 to accelerate towards this goal. They will leave inspired, informed and full of ideas that will drive change, and even transformation in their organizations.
Ables is also co-presenting the session, “Planning for Success: Creating an Office 365 Annual Plan.” Kathy Harper, Employee Engagement Practice Consultant at C5 Insight is co-presenting this session. Harper will be presenting two additional sessions, “Taming Microsoft Teams: From Chaos to Collaboration” and “Project and Task Management: Understanding Microsoft’s Offerings.”
