Speaking about Copilot for Microsoft 365 – IntraTeam webinar, January 11 2024

Copilot for Microsoft 365 presents a huge opportunity to transform work and unlock productivity. If you're interested in the world of AI, Copilots, and Copilot for Microsoft 365 specifically, I'll be delivering a webinar on the topic as part of an event run by IntraTeam on January 11 - the event is free and hosted over Microsoft Teams, but note that it's for practitioners working with Microsoft 365 in global companies only I'm afraid - if you're a consultant, vendor, student etc. then apologies, but IntraTeam need to keep a more focused audience for this event. Hopefully anyone interested will be able to find me at other events through the year though - it's great to finally be talking about Copilot for M365, and I had great feedback from a similar talk at the recent European SharePoint, Microsoft 365 and Azure Conference - so, I'm looking forward to sharing what I know, hearing the perspectives of others, and no doubt learning a lot from the conversations myself.

2024 is going to be a pivotal year for Microsoft's Copilot offerings, and in the entire landscape I'd argue it's Copilot for Microsoft 365 which is the most prominent and relevant for many organisations. At Advania, we've been on the Copilot Early Access Program and have learnt a lot from early hands-on use, and in this period we’ve also spent a lot of time developing our views, approaches, and tools on the best way to prepare for Copilot. Data security and information governance comes into focus for sure, and while there’s a lot of generic/high-level guidance out there (both from Microsoft and partners), we’re feeling good about the ground we’ve covered and guidance we’re able to give. Additionally, we’ve learnt a lot from being immersed in "custom Copilot" build projects which implement generative AI for our clients. The headline is that there's certainly a space for both, and the AI strategy for many organisations will combine multiple tools.

This webinar will focus on Copilot for Microsoft 365 however. Here’s the agenda for my 1 hour session:

Copilot for Microsoft 365 – What to know

  • Copilots everywhere - Microsoft AI for every role
  • Digging into Copilot for Microsoft 365:
    • Real-world scenarios and demos with our data
    • Advanced usages and prompts
    • Is it worth it? Copilot economics, ROI, and value case
    • Copilot readiness - licensing, security, and information governance
    • Extending Copilot - integrations and plugins
  • Where does Copilot for SharePoint fit? Simplifying content authoring and intranet management
  • Summary and the path forward

I look forward to sharing some information, demos, thoughts, and lessons learnt from our experience so far. If you’re interested in the topic, the session runs at 10:20 CET on January 11 and here’s the registration link:
