As this workshop is now on-demand, we've watched it and have the following to say ...

Tracy has a great energy and learning from her was a really fun experience.

We definitely suffer from what Tracy called Teams Over-Adoption (yes, it's a thing). We've got more channels and chats than we know what to do with and were largely just treating Teams like a dumping ground. 

Putting stuff into one channel files tab and then finding it later was one of our biggest challenges. Even if you attend ONLY to find out about strategies to solve this one my opinion it's money well spent. 

Getting ideas around how to remove severe duplication and a frustrated team suffering from overload was really important to me.

Tracy definitely delivered. Turns out, we weren't alone.  Companies of all shapes and sizes are struggling to work out how to use tools (like Teams, OneNote, Planner, OneDrive) to communicate and collaborate effectively!

That's why  Tracy's workshop is so valuable. It taught us how to get more collaboration bang for our Microsoft 365 buck and a whole load of other gems along the way!

    Facilitating the Evolution of Human Capabilities: Tracy's passion is to empower people and therefore training and change management lies close to her heart. Her Mission is to positively impact WHAT and HOW people create, as she believes that what we design / create, designs / creates us back (Ontological Design).

    It is about enabling others to serve themselves better, expand their possibilities, increase their capacity to learn, act more effectively and better design their future. Which is why she endorses O365, as it not only delivers a platform to support and grow digital literacy - but also enables users to achieve more and be more.
