Kevin McDonnell
Having been sucked in to the world of SharePoint with a Project Server project back in 2004, Kevin soon became hooked. From developer, to infrastructure owner to project manager and advocate primarily in Financial Services, Kevin now works as a Solution Architect for CPS in the Teams, Microsoft 365 and Power Platform space and retains a passion for how AI and Machine Learning can aid collaboration and Digital Workplaces. Things have got so bad that he even has a PowerApp for a kitchen calendar. Kevin co-hosts the GreyHatBeard podcast (https://www.greyhatbeard.com), blogs on Digital Workplace topics on his own blog (https://www.mcd79.com), and is a regular on the Happy Hour Etiquette sessions where he helps share the best etiquette on Microsoft 365. Kevin’s passions sit with creating solutions that make it easier for people to be more productive and be able to help themselves. Outside of work, he juggles his three boys with helping to run his local Cub pack, occasionally forcing PowerPoint presentations on the poor kids and trying to convince them to code.
