  • Larry Gregory: Partner Strategy Consultant @ Competegy

    • Very cool collaboration technology to assist in the workplace or across large infrastructure projects providing real-time drawing on plans to the whole team! Go Check it out!

Insipiration 2020 - An acrostic poem by Andrew

Intelligent solutions are my thing

Now it's time for the Microsoft swing

Shame we're not in Vegas, but this is just as good

People working from home, in their neighbourhood

Inspire is the name of the game

Real world examples help us take aim

Exciting, Inviting, Inspiring and fun. Let's get together once this is done

My Poem

 

In the face of a global crisis, we soldier on with Microsoft Teams

Never will grow tired in the pursuit of knowledge

Sweet sound pulsing through my headset as we engage from around the world

People coming together in a much greater way without leaving their homes

Intelligent community brought together by Microsoft

Revolution through technological disruption

Evolution of a new frontier of technological partnership to solve world problems
