Microsoft Community Office Hours, Episode 43

For our 43rd episode of Office Hours (EMEA edition), we moved over to the AvePoint channel (and production team!) and made some tweaks to better fit into their prior Office Hours template. The series had been hosted by AvePoint Chief Brand officer, MVP + RD Dux Raymond Sy (@meetdux), and for this experiment, we wanted to expand it beyond the single host + single guest + single topic with our community Q&A format. We plan to make further tweaks, but we’re back up and running with the series.

For this episode, I was joined by Sean McDonough, MVP (@spmcdonough), Hal Hostetler, MVP (@TVWizard), Mike Nelson, MVP (@MikeNelsonIO), Eric Riz, MVP (@rizinsights), and Microsoft’s Neil Hodgkinson (@nellymo).

New segments include an update on the latest Microsoft Message Center (spearheaded by Mike), and a topic: The Evolution of Mobile and Productivity.
