Thank you for your interest in presenting at Minnesota M365 Fall, 2022 Admin Workshop Day Virtually! (Twitter: @o365mn #M365WorkshopDay) scheduled for Friday, Nov 18, 2022, meeting virtually in Microsoft Teams. We are planning a day filled with fun, education, and a few other surprises that are sure to make MN M365 Workshop Day an event to remember!  

Speaker submissions are due no later than Tuesday, October 11, 2022.  Speaker selection will be announced the first week of November. All speakers are expected to register for the event. Recordings of your session will be made available to the community on our YouTube Channel.

What Kind of Sessions Do We Need?   Our theme this Fall is Microsoft Teams!  Please submit all you can on this topic, but of course we encourage all M365 focused areas.  

We are looking for M365 Security/Compliance, Administration, Adoption, Automation, and Collaboration presentations. Please think about how Teams plays a role in each of these areas. We would also welcome professional development sessions and panel/group sessions giving attendees the opportunity to interact with presenters. 

Technical presentations showing configuration, code examples, and demos are always great, but we’re often asked for sessions targeted at administrators and business decision makers which help them learn how to use M365 in creative ways, how things work (and don’t work), and whatever else they need to know to get the most out of M365 within their organization. Sessions like “How [My Company] Solved [Something] Using Administrative configurations, PowerShell or even Conditional Access Policies” tend to be very popular.  

Many people are interested in seeing and learning about 2022 capabilities in M365 for the Admin. Consider submitting sessions relevant to attendees who are cloud based and using different types of tenants like commercial, government and education.   

How Much Time Will I Have to Present?   

Each session is 90 minutes in length, presenters will have 75 minutes followed by Q&A. If you are a keynote, sessions will be 50 minutes followed by Q&A.  We are accepting submissions to:

  • Attend virtually and present live with camera's on and interactive with the audience

How Can I Improve My Chances Of Being Selected?  

First and foremost, think of your audience. You are writing your session titles and abstracts for the event attendees.  Write it to make it clear who should attend and the technical level they can expect. What you enter on the speaker submission form will be the exact text included on our website schedule.

Speaker benefits to be announced. We will provide as much as we can, but it will depend on our sponsorships.
