How do you interact with Microsoft 365?

I own a SharePoint Consulting Company and I have the pleasure of assisting companies identify their requirements and match them to M365's functionality.

Tell us one customer story about Microsoft 365.

Worked with a client who had a major security breach in their tenant. Being a government oriented entity it was a huge blow and left them gun shy to the product and second guessing themselves with every decision. Worked with them to understand the tools that are available under compliance and security along with their configuration being rated (scored) so as their security improved their score improved and confidence was slowly but surely restored.

How do you give back to your community?

I organize the local Office 365 & SharePoint Saturday event, Tri-County Office 365 & SharePoint User Group, I a local and global speaker at a number of Microsoft related events along with local community Chamber of Commerce and Technology First events.
