We are finishing up our preparations for next week’s European SharePoint Conference in Dublin, Ireland – the largest single SharePoint-centered event in the world (this year!).  ESPC gives us a chance to connect with hundreds and hundreds of customers and partners from Europe and around the world.  Microsoft is bringing a large team from Redmond and around the world to share knowledge and listen to our customers and partners.

Digital transformation is a critical outcome for modern organizations, and Microsoft provides a broad range of solutions spanning not just SharePoint and OneDrive, but Yammer, Microsoft Teams, Office 365, Azure and Microsoft 365.


The European SharePoint Conference runs from Monday November 13 to Thursday November 16, and presents a chance to learn from dozens of speakers from Microsoft, MVPs and community leaders.  Dozens of partner organizations will be available to meet in the Expo Hall, and you’ll be able to network with hundreds of colleagues.


The full program is available here but here’s my subjective set of recommended sessions from Microsoft and our community.


KEYNOTE: Opening Keynote by Jeff Teper, CVP, Microsoft, USA

Jeff Teper, Microsoft CVP for OneDrive, SharePoint and Office will lead an overview of our innovations across Office 365, with deeper demos from some of the product team.  If you weren’t at Ignite, or want to catch up on our very latest, this is the session not to miss.  That said, here are some sessions to spotlight:
