Thanks – look out for another event in November

Hi all,

Just a quick note to say thanks to everyone who attended the event. I felt we had some really good interaction. We’ve always said MUCUGL is not about “presenting to people”, it’s about bringing the community together to share knowledge and insight.

As always, we’re looking for feedback/presentation ideas/people who want to present/questions – please email tom at tomarbuthnot .com or hit us on twitter @mucugl @tomarbuthnot and @adamjocobs

There will be a lot of news and updates dropping at Microsoft Ignite at the end of September, both Adam and I will be there, so will be taking notes and bringing all the news back for a MUCUGL in November, stay tuned for that.

thanks

Over half way through 2017 already and there has been a lot going on. It must be time for another MUCUGL. Sorry for the relatively short notice on this one, hope to see you there.

This month we’ll be talking all about Microsoft Teams and where it fits in the Office 365 Collaboration space; how are people using today, and where might your company use it.

We’ll then be talking about all the latest Skype for Business and Cloud PBX news, including a session on Cloud Connection Edition 2.0 which was just released, as well as some real world stories about Cloud Connector Edition Deployments

As usual, at the end of the event, we’ll head to the pub for networking and catch up.

Hope to see you there!

thanks
