I’m often asked what Microsoft Teams functions I focus on. With so many options, it’s not so easy to answer. I tried in 5 slides and under 5 minutes. These are some of the things I think will make you a super collaborator.
There are certain days which seem to cry out to be filled – mornings that plead for action – the atmosphere vibrant with expectancy and high, heroic challenge, and this was such a morning.From Mr Pye by Mervyn Peake – Filed under Literature/Poetry/Prose
