November 2020 Content Wrap-Up

Lots happening this month, and not a lot of time for chatter here. I’ve catalogued my various content outputs from this past month and provided links below. Between the weekly Office Hours AMA sessions (which are a ton of fun) and Productivity Tips webinar with Tom Duff (@duffbert), this month’s tweetjam was run mid-month (it’s usually toward the end of the month) as part of the M365Chicago event, allowing us to simultaneously run a Teams panel discussion. As we’ve learned in the past, people sitting in front of computers tweeting doesn’t make the best video content, so we all tried to pay more attention to the live discussion than the tweets — although I was running the tweetjam, so I had to juggle both. Still don’t have a link to the panel recording, but will share as soon as it becomes available.

Celebrating my 30th wedding anniversaryOf course, the biggest news of the month is my 30th wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Sure doesn’t feel like it. Not sure how she has put up with me, and yet here we are. I’m looking forward to the next 30 years…

Here is my publicly available content from November 2020:

Microsoft Community Office Hours

If you’ve never joined one of our weekly live streams, I highly recommend you drop in and ask your questions. There are always 4 to 8 of us going through questions asked in Microsoft Tech Community (unanswered questions) and from the Office 365 and Microsoft Teams community pages in Facebook. We also take questions live via one of our streaming locations, which are made available via Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Twitter (Periscope). Catch us every Monday morning at 8am Pacific.

#CollabTalk TweetJam and M365Chicago EndNote

As mentioned above, this past month’s #CollabTalk was held mid-month (Nov 13th) as the EndNote for the M365Chicago event on the topic of Microsoft 365 adoption during COVID-19. Some great insights from the community and panel, as always. Thanks again to tyGraph for sponsoring, and for Jay Leask (@jayleask) and the M365Chicago team for the invite!

Productivity Tips

Toward the end of the month, Tom and I held our 25th webinar in the Productivity Tips series, sharing 10 more of our favorite tips from the Microsoft 365 platform. And as always, you can find the blog post with links to the individual tips shared, our slides, and the complete webinar recording here:

Interviews

This past month I was able to interview two of our newest Microsoft MVPs: Mary Thompson and Martyn Coupland. I’m also happy to report that the #ESPC20 team has finally made some of their recordings available, including all of the “3 Questions” interviews that I conducted.

Blatant Self-Promotion

….aaaaand I also squeezed in one music-related post, and last month’s content wrap-up. Lots of content in the pipeline, some of which will be published across December, January and February, so stay tuned! Also — been tweeting out the art to the right to encourage people to subscribe to my YouTube account. If you have not done so, please subscribe immediately!

And that’s a wrap. Some big things happening in December, including the re-launch of the CollabTalk website with some new service offerings, a couple new partnerships, and yes, more content. See you later…
