Work Better Using Microsoft Teams

Collaborating in a
Universal Workplace

Why you should attend?

2020 saw rapid uptake in the technology to support this transformation and now organizations and their employees will need to learn how to work effectively within the universal workplace.

Our Collaborating in a Universal Workplace event focuses on working practice tips, best practices and how to use the Microsoft Teams & supporting toolset effectively to collaborate with colleagues and partners in any work location.

You will gain insight on how to harmonize the Teams & M365 tools and integrate them into your working personal & team working patterns so that you can help your team remain connected & aligned with your business objectives.


What's On?

Our carefully designed agenda takes you on a collaboration journey where you will learn from other people’s experiences, best practices and methodologies. By the end of this event you’ll be more prepared and better equipped to take on working in your universal workplace.



Burnout is real. Everyone talks about how busy they are like it is a badge of honor. Or how great their airline or hotel status is. Life over the past few months has gotten even crazier with the COVID pandemic. This creates all new stress factors in our lives such as having to adapt to working in a new location, home schooling our kids and more. Bottom line, all of this contributes to burnout. That feeling where, if we’re honest with ourselves, we just don’t care anymore. So, what do we do if we’re truly burned out? How do we regain the balance in our lives?

Working Effectively Remotely

Working at home effectively is a skill. To those who have been forced into this way of working it can be a shock to the system. How do you differentiate home and work life within the same setting? How can you discipline yourself to make time for work and home?  

Ståle Hansen & Steve Goodman have been working remotely for many years and have each fine-tuned their working techniques that help them remain productive and also have time for family life.   

They talk about their personal challenges, methodologies and how they use Microsoft 365 technology effectively to ensure they get work done whilst maintaining their personal and family wellbeing.

The Modern Office

Work places are changing and so is the corporate office. As organisations continue their transformation into the universal workplace, they also need to support their work force by providing the right set of peripherals and devices to make team collaboration easy.  

The traditional meeting room is evolving with increased focus and provision being made to support the remote participant and make them feel in the room.   

Workers are investing their home office arrangements to support their professional lives and are in search of technology & equipment that can improve their productivity and collaboration flow.  

Join Jeff Schertz as he walks through the different types of working environments teams find themselves in and the devices on offer within the Microsoft Teams certified device program that can help boost team collaboration and productivity.
