Happy Monday friends! I hope you’re off to a fabulous 2018! January has been a great month for me meeting with customers and partners in North America and UK. A key topic that keeps coming up in my conversations is how to effectively drive Office 365 adoption through storytelling.
If you’re not familiar with storytelling, according to Wikipedia, it describes the social and cultural activity of sharing stories, sometimes with improvisation, theatrics, or embellishment. Every culture has its own stories or narratives, which are shared as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation or instilling moral values.
Who can better answer this and provide insights than a rockstar storyteller herself? I am very excited to invite you to join Miri Rodriguez and myself this Thursday, Feb 1, 2018 at 11 am ET / 8 am PT for a 30 minute Periscope livestream where Miri will share proven tactics on how you can maximize storytelling to captivate and drive office 365 adoption.
If you haven’t met Miri, you’re in for a treat! Miri is a storyteller for Microsoft. She is a creative journalist developing content across key technology trends, designing activities and materials for Microsoft IT.
