Upcoming Skype for Business and Office 365 UK User Groups and Events

Published 30/01/2017 - 0 Comments

I can’t believe the first month of 2017 is already over. The busy pace continues. There are quite a few upcoming events, both in the UK and one virtual that I thought you might be interested in.


We have my and Adam Jacobs Microsoft UC User Group London, next event is on the 23rd February at the Polycom EEC London. After some good Cloud PBX questions last time, this time we’re going heavy on the live demos (sacrifices will be made to the demo gods ahead of the event). There is a lot we will demo including Cloud PBX Auto Attendants and Call Queues, with these features due to GA in March we’re hopeful all the core features will be in play for this February meet up, either way, we’ll be demo’ing everything we can.


The night before on February 22nd my colleague Iain Smith has his Northern UC User Group. The event will be held at the Modality Systems Leeds Office.


The new Microsoft Cloud User Group (UK based) has 3 events happening


As an early heads up, I am also pleased to be speaking at IP EXPO Manchester 2017 on Wednesday 17th May on Skype for Business Cloud PBX In the Real World. More details to follow.


Finally, I’m helping coordinate an online monthy UC/Skype Community open mic chat. We’ve had too well attended events so far, if that sounds interesting to you check it out at

Hope to see you at some of these events, please come and say hello!
