Microsoft Office 365 Cloud Productivity Workshops

Our Workshops are FREE, Interactive, Hands-on Sessions in The Microsoft 365 Suite. What you learn is immediately applicable to your business situation. You’ll walk away with five tangible skills that you can implement tomorrow in your work. 

The way people work together is evolving. The modern workplace has introduced complex projects, varying workstyles, cross-functional roles, and geographic diversity and calls for a complete set of collaboration tools that will enable modern workers to be successful. Along with collaboration, you also need technology that protects you against emerging threats. Microsoft technology secures this digital transformation by applying these protections in a tightly-integrated, comprehensive platform with unique intelligence and vendor partnerships.   Our hands-on workshops are an engaging way for business leaders to better understand the technology solutions they have access to (or would like access to), leading to secure collaboration, business process improvements, and improved workplace environments.  

These aren’t your typical events. You won’t see slides, demos, or sales pitches. Instead, you get to work with our Microsoft Certified Trainer to test drive the tools that will help your business grow. Microsoft provides all of the equipment and sets up a test environment so we can explore all of the different apps and services without the fear of ruining anything in your real tenancies.  

What to expect at the session:

  • An interactive, instructor-led, hands-on learning experience to better understand the tools you use everyday and what’s available in Microsoft Office 365 to make your job even easier
  • A custom session designed around you and your colleagues’ interests, priorities and needs and how you can apply the entire Microsoft 365 suite (including Teams, SharePoint, Planner, OneDrive, Power Automate (formerly called Flow), etc.) to your own business scenarios
  • A facilitated walk-through of a live environment in the cloud to explore what’s possible and experience first hand how Microsoft can solve your collaboration and security challenges
  • Fun! Each participant will select a character or “persona” to play for the session

What NOT to expect at the session:

  • A sales pitch that leaves you unfulfilled with more questions than answers

 “I enjoyed the workshop because it gave me live hands-on experience on how Office 365 could work me and for our team. The content was geared around our specific requests and had general information on the programs. The InsITe team was very knowledgeable and made the session fun and informative. I felt that the workshop was very beneficial, and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering switching to Office 365 or wants to know more about how it can work for you.”
