Determining when to use SharePoint hub sites
Hub sites are fundamentally shifting the information architecture for our intranets. And while site owners are excited about the functionality hubs offer, they’re still unsure when and where to use hubs. This session provides practical guidance on use of SharePoint hub sites, including:
– Determining when hubs are needed
– Building organizational strategies for governing hub sites
– Educating your site owners about hub sites

Next-gen user adoption: Leveraging hack-a-thons to drive creative Office 365 business solutions
This session explores the use of hack-a-thons to drive Office 365 user interest, enthusiasm, and innovation. Hack-a-thons are an immersive and inexpensive learning opportunity. Hack-a-thon participants take part in the entire solution design and build process, from envisioning new business solutions to learning how to build capabilities in Office 365. Come learn how to design and facilitate a hack-a-thon event for your organization or user group.

Building a diverse tech community (co-presenting with Wes Preston, MVP)
