The agenda for next month’s activities are:

  • 3:00 PM – Login, Arrive, Relax, General chit-chat and networking!
  • 3:15 PM – Welcome, Introductions, Australian Computer Society & Microsoft Ignite / Office 365 Recap – Daniel Brown
  • 3:30 PM – Getting started with Teams Shared Channels - Daniel Anderson (MVP)

Shared channels in Microsoft Teams create collaboration spaces where you can invite people who are not in the team.

Traditionally this has been a not so perfect user experience

The release of shared channels is big news for organisations working together, a new model of external federation that makes it seamless and easy.

In this session you will learn the basics of how to get started

About Daniel Anderson

Every day I get to work in an industry, with people and businesses where I can make a difference in the way everyday work is experienced. I believe in inspiring businesses and individuals to re-evaluate how they operate, communicate, collaborate, and function. I believe in industry disruption and as a Microsoft MVP (Most Valued Professional), I have the experience, platform, and opportunity to do that.

Microsoft MVPs are technology experts who passionately share their knowledge with the community. We are always on the "bleeding edge" and have an unstoppable urge to get our hands on new, exciting technologies. We have very deep knowledge of Microsoft 365 products, services and ecosystem, while also being able to bring together diverse platforms, products and solutions, to solve real world problems to individuals and entire organizations

I am a highly experienced, passionate and driven Microsoft 365 specialist and enjoy helping businesses grow through employee engagement and empowering talent to achieve more with Microsoft 365. I specialise in Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, modern workplace, employee engagement, as well as the overarching employee experience.

I have a proven track record in leading technical development and delivery, consulting on productivity optimization, as well as boosting collaboration, business processes, and employee experience. Over the past 20 years, I have helped hundreds of organisations and thousands of individuals plan, architect, develop, implement, and adopt Microsoft Teams, SharePoint and other areas of Microsoft 365 through effective planning, strategic analysis, communication, training and execution and in doing so been able to build my own following and community.

I have also contributed greatly to the wider community by sharing my knowledge into the community through many different platforms.

I believe that I have a particular talent for encouraging open dialogue, which helps everyone feel well informed and comfortable navigating their technology platforms to achieve their desired business outcomes.

With a passion for teaching, technology, business strategy, change management, adoption, process and a keen eye for detail, I enjoy the challenges of bringing people together and translating technical jargon into easy terminology so end users, and businesses can understand and grow together.
