So I have accepted an additional role with Catapult, Office 365 Technical Evangelist. This role is an addition to my primary role of Managing Consultant and delivering for clients. This new role is designed to ensure that Catapult as a whole is well informed and poised to sell and deliver on Office 365 opportunities. So it will be additional work for me but I accepted the role knowing that, but my passion for Office 365 made it an easy decision. Catapult already has an outstanding group of dedicated and smart consultants, and we recently held a two day summit to work on our Office 365 strategy and vision. So my job will be to ensure all of our Catapult family is ready to answer questions and deliver the deep understanding of Office 365 to our existing and prospective clients.

Part of the duties will be to help out our Marketing department to develop material to assist our sales team with getting the word out about Office 365. I will also be doing some presentation and training on Office 365. So this brings up the Cloud Fest one day conferences. I hope to be speaking at both the Denver and Dallas events and Catapult is a Silver Sponsor as well. Please check out the site and I hope you can make it to one of the events and maybe stop by and say hi. Catapult will have a booth in Denver and Dallas and when I am not presenting I plan on doing booth duty.

I am also working on Part 2 of my “What is the Value of Office 365”, and hope to have it published soon. If you missed part 1 you can check it out here: https://www.catapultsystems.com/smcneill/archive/2011/10/05/what-is-the-value-of-office-365-part-1.aspx
