IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, WE CAN TALK! Just contact us, we don't bite. 


All people involved in this event, must comply to our Code of Conduct. In case of any reported violations of our code of conduct, we reserve the right to pass the name of any misconducting person to third parties, including law enforcement, so that we may enforce this code of conduct and the safety of any other speaker or attendee. Conference participants violating these rules may be expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organizers. Speakers or attendees that were banned from other events may be refused to participate at the discretion of the organizing team.


Open for all sessions related to Training, focused on Microsoft Platforms, in all possible flavors. From more traditional Training and Presentation Skills topics, to Deep Dive Technical presentations on Microsoft Products, Services and Architectures.

Non-tech sessions, contributing to a better and more diverse community, are welcome with open arms. Think Mental Health for IT Pros, Imposter Syndrome, Amplifying Diversity & Inclusion, Career & Personal Growth

Conference sessions are 1.5 Hours long (including at least 10 minutes of Q&A), and allocated to a track by the organizing team.


We genuinely encourage any new speaker to submit a proposal as a Newcomer. As an easy guideline, new speakers are people who have not yet presented at an in-person conference. User Group sessions, webinars and client/team presentations are not taken into account for this categorization.

Each new speaker will be paired up with a buddy/mentor, who will provide them with highly valuable tips & tricks. Even more so, we'll provide new speakers with all assistance they need and want whilst preparing for their debut.

Submitting as a new speaker, means you agree to meet with your buddy/mentor and collaborate on your session.


Four submissions are allowed per speaker and multiple (unique) sessions are encouraged to be submitted. Up to three co-speakers are allowed per session submission. Submitted sessions are viewable publicly on the Sessionize platform. More than one submitted session may be accepted into the conference agenda. We aim to have around two sessions presented per speaker for speaker-management purposes.


In general, conference sessions will be recorded to YouTube and may be broadcasted to Youtube and other platforms at a later date. Attendees will be given links to sessions specifically for post-conference viewing and Sessions may be released at a later date for MCT Community benefit. Topics that cover MCT NDA materials will not be published for general viewing, but may be shared with Microsoft for internal purposes.
