It's an incredible solution that they have come up with to run the quiz.

What's been your standout product/service so far?

Level 5 Contributor

You are right, the key to all of this is working together collectively. Fingers crossed it gets under control soon.

Hello All,

Dan here, I work for an Australian Gold Partner MSP & Professional Services Org.


I'm hoping to get to some of the IOT sessions but it's not looking good with calendar clashes, failing that anything in the Azure space is of interest.

We're a strong MSP based primarily in Melbourne and Sydney. We're a MS Gold Partner across six disciplines - Cloud Platform, Cloud Productivity, Collaboration & Content, Communications, Datacenter and Messenging.


We've been doing a lot of Teams and Telstra Calling for Office 365 work with our other primary partner Telstra. We work across SMB, Mid-Market and Enterprise. 


Quite interested in the Windows Virtual Desktop solution and Azure Migration Program for some of our larger customers. 


P.s. I'm in lockdown 2.0 in Melbourne!

I might actually take you up on that offer. I'm always keen to keep learning new things. Might be an "after Inspire" thing.

Level 3 Contributor

Thanks for the plug Matt. Looking forward to that quiz. 


Our little tech stack gets better each time we run it. 



Anyone, hit me up if you want a tour of the Forms/Power Automate/CDS/Power BI back end.

Hi there,
I run a small MSP in Melbourne that's a MS Silver Partner.

Just here to learn what's new in the partner space and to see what other products and services are coming for partners and end users.

Level 4 Contributor

Hey Matt,


That sounds like a great idea. Signing up now 🙂

Hey Greg

Hi all, 


Melbourne based Data Platform and Power BI specialist. Locked down but enjoying today immensely!

Level 4 Contributor

Absolutely, I've made the comment numerous times now, that's it's incredible how quickly we've been able to move forward with technological advancements and rollouts when a lot of the previous "red tape" has been removed as a result of needing to rollout new enhancements as a result of COVID.


This has provided the IT industry with a huge amount of opportunity to show how these enhancements can improve productivity to businesses.

Hi Matt, all,


The numbers have been seesawing but it's just popped up to 484. So while we will deal with 2.0, there's a looming threat of Stage 4 and what that means for mental health, businesses and the economy - and that's without getting into what may have been avoidable.


At the end of the day, making new connections and solving/conquering together, has got to be a positive we create through all this! Do you agree?

Hi all, Evan here! I'm currently locked down in Melbourne, but not locked out of Inspire! Really enjoying it thus far, looking to learn more about what's in the pipeline to add value to our customers in this new world!

I'm from Sydney, having started my own independent company and looking at growing my business, particularly focusing on Modern Desktop & Azure solutions.


Attended Inspire previously through a previous employer and was keen to become a Microsoft Partner when I started my new company initially so I could attend future Inspire events, as I got so much out of it previously.


Keen to get to know fellow Partners and see how we help each other grow.
