Microsoft 365 Spirit Guide

Results-driven Microsoft365 consultant with a passion for helping organizations work more efficiently. With my business-focused approach, I specialize in getting my hands dirty in different applications to drive productivity and optimize workflows. I have worked in various roles such as project manager, business analyst, trainer, specialist, and productivity coach, which has given me a unique perspective on how to implement Microsoft365 tools to drive business success. As a speaker, I have had the privilege of presenting at various international events, where I share my expertise on topics such as governance, training, coaching, and user adoption. My presentations are always informative, engaging, and tailored to the specific needs of the audience. In addition to my consulting and speaking work, I help run the "Office 365 Distilled" podcast, where I share my insights and experiences with a global audience. If you're looking to optimize your organization's use of Microsoft365, I am here to help. Let's connect to discuss how we can work together to achieve your business goals.
