Corporate events with a physical presence are a great way to facilitate knowledge transfer, encourage networking, and spawn innovation across organizational silos. However, in today’s increasingly multi-location work environment the ability to put on such events is becoming more challenging. Cost for travel, time out from core work, and the logistics around such events means that they are being steadily scaled back in size and scope.
Join Microsoft’s Michael Gannotti September 30th and October 1st for these two Step by Step webcasts (1 hour each) where attendees will learn how to set up a proof of concept that increases the scale reach an organizational impact of physical events beyond the location while increasing the overall ROI. Attendees will learn how to leverage their existing Microsoft 365 investment to foster networking, cross silo innovation, as well as turn talks into actionable item generators.
These webcasts will take place at 12 noon eastern (9am pacific) over two consecutive days. Attendees will have plenty of time in each session for interactive Q&A. At the conclusion of the second session attendees will be provided with a link to the recorded event, various resources, as well as a Step by Step document that will detail how to build out such an event Proof of Concept to test within their own organization.
