I really did miss getting to know you all face to face.. and perhaps a cheeky drink or two.. but it was great to still be able to interact with you here and make some new contacts!
Definitely looking fwd to what we can do together in FY21!
You are sent to a desert island (with free, unlimited WiFi) and you can only take 3 pieces of
tech. Tell us what you would pack. (Bonus points for creativity):
3. Arduino as Azure IoT device
I haven't had the opportunity to attend MSFT inspire before in person, so I have considered these 48hours an absolute treat! After crushing it in FY20 by hitting 148% of our ACR number, we have a HUGE stretch target for this FY21. I'm excited to take back all that I have learned from the last two days and to get my team pumped with the new offers, updates and value adds that MSFT is coming to market with this year!
This is what I am feeling like after these two days... with a couple of sessions to go!
To all who I have met over the last 2 days here, please connect with me on Linkedin to continue our discussions! https://www.linkedin.com/in/michael-w-bell/
What a great event.
I love the virtual event. I hope in the future all events are run in a hybrid mode (both remote and in-person options). It makes it so inclusive. Meeting lots of Partners and learning more than my brain can hold has been great.
Final Submission - A meme of how I'm feeling after two inspiring days!
Started early and have a jet-packed next few hours, so thought I'd get the meme posted a dash earlier than! It's been awesome and it's not over yet, but this is definitely how I'm feeling!
It's been great meeting and chatting with everyone on the forums, if anyone wants to get in touch after Inspire, feel free to connect with me on LinkedIn 😀
If I were sent to a desert island, I'd take with me:
Renewable energy technology - something has got to run that free unlimited wifi!
3D printing technology - to build a base on the desert island
The reality shifting, island moving tech from the Dharma Initiative on the Lost island - to make me forget the desert existed and move the island to better weather conditions!
Deserted Island! What would I pack?
1. The Surface Pro that I'm about to win 🤣
2. Solar powered generator with battery backup 😁
3. An expresso machine, I'm sure I can find coffee or some equivalent on the island!
Get your drink on!
I am triple fisting it today (with matching Microsoft brand colored mugs). My supply chain is running well and the coffee press is full. As I'm fully "buzzed", I dressed up for y'all on a pair of fabulous pumps to match my pajamas.
IF umbrellas/sunscreen 🌞 counted as "tech" I would be bringing them… because I wouldn’t last 1 day in a desert island with my glistening white skin from being indoors! But, if I got sent to the desert island, I would have to bring:
- Solar Power Panel to charge my devices.
- My mobile phone, as it gives me the flexibility to stay on this island and still “work from…home?” and stay connected to my family.
- Lastly, it would be a telescope, as I’m sure the stars you could see out there with no light pollution would be INSANE! 🔭🔭🔭
On a deserted Island I'ld take:
Microsoft Surface, got to stay in touch with the world and who better to provide that than Microsoft 🙂
Fitness tracker (Fitbit etc), need to stay accountable while isolated and consistently exercise
Hololens - Might as well bring people virtually to the island with me
3 pieces of Tech i'd take on a desert island (presuming food sources are in abundance) -
Solar Generator to power my ...
Long-range drone to seek attention to get me outta there!!! (Only so much solitude I can handle)
Today has been awesome! Blown away that there is 4.1BILLION... BILLION minutes used on Meetings on Teams Daily.
Here's the real brains behind my computer when I'm working from home!
Us Melbournians are back to Schooling from Home, so these two guys are my co-workers.. again!
It's quite tricky juggling a crazy work schedule while trying to support learning needs of dependents - and there's a tech opportunity right there! - but these two are my reason for being, so why wouldn't I?!
