Achieving real value from use of Microsoft 365 services was a hot topic at Microsoft Ignite in Orlando, Florida last week.  For those of you who may not have been able to attend I've put together this handy viewing guide for some of the top sessions.  We also had key announcements regarding our adoption tools at the show. They were:



One of the hottest topics was people seeking to learn how to build their own Champion's program.  To that end Sara Bush of Core Service Engineering will join us during our November 20th community call to discuss her insights from building and running a large Champion network at Microsoft. She will be joined by AJ Smith who announced the Productivity Score to share what that means for your adoption efforts. 


Below and attached is our list of all the sessions we think you'll want to view.  (To find the spreadsheet look below this post.)  When available the link to the presentation is also on the session page.  Using the Microsoft Events app and logging in with your Tech Community ID will allow you to download the videos to listen to offline.
