In honor of reaching our remarkable milestone of 100 episodes, we proudly present a star-studded lineup of distinguished guests who have graced our previous podcasts. Joining us for this special occasion are Karuana Gatimu, Microsoft Principal Program Manager, Customer Advocacy Group; Heidi Jordan, Senior Modern Workplace with Avanade; and Mark Kashman, Senior Product Manager at Microsoft. In this special edition, we recapped some of the previous episodes, talk about the community work all our super star guests have contributed to over the years, and we chat about the latest product announcements within the M365 and Power Platform stacks.
In this upcoming episode, we’ll have the pleasure of hearing from Edith Young, a trailblazer in the tech industry, as she shares her thoughts on the challenges and opportunities facing women in IT today. Throughout the interview, Edith shares valuable advice on overcoming obstacles and leveraging one’s unique strengths to achieve professional fulfillment in the fast-paced world of information technology. We also discuss the importance of diversity and inclusivity in the tech industry and how to keep pushing towards this subject.
In this episode, we decided to do a recap of the Microsoft 365 Community, the events we have been hosting or presenting at, the upcoming events that we are part of, and the new site that was launched in the fall about the community. This episode has a lot of information for the organizers, speakers, and attendees on how to host, speak or attend an event.
In this episode, we step away from technology to discuss a common situation that has happened to all of us. How do we handle a situation where some people do not feel heard in work meetings, or people are always over spoken to? We review what strategies we have taken in the past, if such events happened to us or if we have experienced it happening to others. We talked about strategies how to address them and what is the best way to take back the control of the meeting. We also extend this topic to discuss the same issue happening when some tries to hijack your session while presenting in events, and how do you handle such a situation.
