VOSS to Deliver Three Stellar Presentations at UCEXPO


Tuesday, May 1, 2018 – Reading, UK – Today, VOSS Solutions announced that the company has been invited to present three sessions at UCEXPO which takes place at London’s ExCeL, May 16 and 17, 2018.

On Wednesday May 16, at 12.20pm, Pat Richard, Principal Microsoft UC Architect at VOSS and Microsoft MVP will host a panel session entitled "The Impact and Evolution of Microsoft Teams."

An impressive group of industry heavyweights will take part in the panel session alongside Richard:

  • Tom Arbuthnot, MVP, MCSM, Principal Solutions Architect, Modality Systems
  • Steve Goodman, MVP, Principal Technology Strategist, Content and Code
  • Jeff Schertz, MVP, Microsoft UC Architect, Polycom
  • Kerri Hollis, Senior Product Manager - Intelligent Communications, Microsoft

Richard, a well-known thought leader in the UC space, has more than 20 years’ experience with Microsoft technology, and is a leading authority in Skype for Business, PowerShell, and Microsoft Exchange related projects including migration, upgrades, design, and automation. Pat was awarded Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) status in 2006 and has received 11 MVP awards to date.

In the interactive panel session, the group will discuss Microsoft’s UC strategy in FY18. This includes the increasingly important role of Teams, and the impact that this will have on existing and future enterprise deployments. The panel will share experiences of Microsoft UC deployments, both with and without Teams, and discuss the impact that a transition from Skype for Business to Teams will have on an organisation.

A number of signed copies of Richard’s book, "Skype for Business Unleashed" will be given as spot prizes at the end of the session.

On Wednesday May 16, at 3pm, and again on Thursday May 17, at 11am, Christopher Martini, Vice President at VOSS Solutions will deliver a presentation on "Secrets of a Successful Microsoft UC Deployment". Returning after presenting to a packed house at UCEXPO in 2017, Martini has been invited to deliver his session twice, due to its popularity the previous year.

He will explore the issues and share valuable insight on how to overcome these obstacles, and how to avoid potential pitfalls.
