I’m speaking at SP24

I’m delighted to be speaking at SP24 – a purely online conference about SharePoint lasting 24 hours, going around the globe!

It’s happening on 16th/17th April; I have a lot of respect for the guys putting this ambitious event on, I can’t imagine how much work has gone on behind the scenes – many late nights & weekends I’m sure! Hats off to the team!

My session is titled “Office 365 Public Websites: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly”; my team and I have been involved in a number of website development projects, not least our own www.c5alliance.com but also numerous client sites – here’s the abstract:


SharePoint has been capable of providing enterprise grade websites for a number of versions, however these were typically associated with enterprise costs. With the latest release of Office 365, SharePoint 2013 online makes many of these features affordable and available for everybody. This overview of Web Content Management in SharePoint Online will cover the new features available and demonstrate the ease of use of SharePoint 2013 online for everybody from designers and developers to web content editors (The Good). The pro’s and con’s will also be presented, including limitations where escalation to senior Office 365 engineers has resulted in a brick wall (The Bad) and those with workarounds (The Ugly). Whether you are building a new primary website for your organisation or a small microsite, an understanding of the benefits and limitations of SharePoint 2013 Online is essential.

I’m excited about this new format for learning and sharing knowledge, I hope you can join me – April 17th 8:00 pm – April 17th 9:00 pm (GMT+01:00) – I’ll be on Twitter answering any questions you may have, during the session, for a while after, or anytime in general!
