About Silverside at SPS Barcelona

In Barcelona, we will be on stage for two times! Sasja Beerendonk will indeedFacebook never needed adoption, why does Office 365? present two sessions.

1.Facebook never needed adoption, why does Office 365? 

Learn what makes change for technology in business so difficult and how to motivate your employees to adopt it. 
What are the reasons employees do not simply embrace new technology?
Resistance to change is what you’ll get without a proper user adoption strategy for your collaboration platform. Unlike IT people, business users are not necessarily thrilled about new technology, features and functionalities.
Build it and they will come does not work. Most employees will need to be motivated differently to start a new way of working. 
How can we bend resistance to change, to change readiness? How do we find your Champions and activate them? How do employees understand when to use what app? This session will show you how to build a successful user adoption strategy.

2. Collaborate to co-author documents, using Microsoft Teams & Microsoft Office

Learn how you can be more effective in ‘Co-authoring documents’ using a mix Office 365 apps OneDrive, Teams and Office.
This session explains how the complete reviewing process (draft – collaborate – publish) can be done smarter and with a lot more fun by using a mix of great features in Office 365 tools.

Have you ever gotten lost in all the feedback and reviews done on one of your documents? Likely there were many emails with copies of the file, and different people giving their feedback using different tools and options. It’s a mess, and hard to finalise your documents.
There are many apps and possibilities in Office 365 to make co-authoring a smooth and effective process. But many employees lack the digital skills, or are stuck in old habits and using outdated tools.

This session goes beyond the real-time co-editing feature possible in Office Online or sharing a file through OneDrive. It focusses on a real-to-life work scenario, where people discover what a combination of Office 365 tools can do to improve their everyday work.
Learn how teams can re-think the tools and practices they use today and how they can work together efficiently on documents with all the great new features of Office 365 to achieve a better process and result.

The event is free, but this year you can also do voluntary donations with your tickets. The full amount of the donations will be given to a local NGO. It is our way of contributing to a better Barcelona. So register now to reserve your seat!
