Explore how the new generation of Microsoft collaboration tools is changing the way we work together.

Microsoft Cloud is changing the way we work. With more ways to communicate and collaborate with both colleagues and other organisations, from any device, anywhere, it can be difficult to understand the collaboration solution that best fits you, your organisation and your culture. 

Join us at The Manchester Hilton, for an interactive workshop to explore the Microsoft Cloud collaboration suite: including Microsoft Teams, SharePoint Online, Groups, OneDrive for Business and Yammer. Making sense of these tools, and how they work best together for you, is what we do. 

Who's the workshop for?

The Microsoft Collaboration Workshop is designed for both Technical and Business Managers who want to understand how Microsoft Cloud Collaboration tools can transform modern working practices, and how they can be practically and successfully implemented.

What will you gain from this Microsoft Collaboration Workshop?

  • Understand how the collaboration toolset might work best for you
  • Learn how to drive end user engagement, making your collaboration rollout a success
  • Understand how you can control data and maintain security
  • Gain clear direction and vision as to how you can meaningfully adopt tools in which you have already invested
