Presenting at SharePoint Connections and European Office 365 connect

As an Office 365 MVP, I’m an active member of the SharePoint and Office 365 community. I blog, I write articles and books, I hold webinars, and sometimes I also present at conferences. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be speaking twice in the Netherlands, once in November at SharePoint Connections 2013, and in January at the first European Office 365 connect.

SharePoint Connections Amsterdam 2013 – 19.-21.November 2013

I’ll be presenting alongside a whole lot of other great people, among them some MVPs and even MCSMs. If you intend to come as well, you can get a 10% discount with thede SP288 when you register!

My presentations are:
Hybrid SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 Environments for Decision Makers
What value does hybrid SharePoint 2013 and Office 365 environments offer, which drawbacks do they have? Why do companies use them? How do you plan them, and which governance aspects need to be considered? And which resource requirements do they impose? These and many more questions will be answered in this session, targeted at IT Managers and other decision makers who want to learn more about hybrid environments. Come see!

Automating Office 365 with PowerShell
With the new Office 365, there are many more possibilities for administrators to manage Office 365 with PowerShell, especially regarding SharePoint Online. In this session, you will get an overview of the existing cmdlets and learn how common tasks such as creating a mailbox and granting access to a SharePoint site can be automated.

I’ll be back in the Netherlands in January, when I’ll present at the very first European Office 365 connect. The code for a 10% discount during registration is GB274.
My 2 presentations are:

Real-Life Use Cases for SharePoint Online
You’ve got SharePoint Online, but you think you’re not really leveraging it yet to get maximum value out of it? Or you’re looking generally for ideas on how it could be used? In this session, you will get to see how other companies use SharePoint Online, how they integrate it effectively into their IT architecture, and what kind of solutions they build on it.

Migrating to SharePoint Online
Companies that start using Office 365 usually have a lot of information and solutions already in their organisation. How can they move their data to SharePoint Online? Can all solutions be easily moved as well, or are there restrictions to consider? Who needs to be involved in a migration, which resources are required, and which steps need to be undertaken at which time? Get answers to these questions in this session!
