During that time I have talked at conferences such as Lync Conference, TechEd US and EU, Microsoft Ignite, IT Dev Connections, TechDays Sweden and all the Nordic Infrastructure Conferences ever done. Topics have typically been around Lync and Skype for Business phone number management, Skype for Business voice design and operations. After Office 365 and cloud voice has become more mature my talks has shifted to talk about Call Quality in the cloud, cloud voice design and Microsoft Teams administration and voice. I also have a passion for personal and team productivity where I share how I succeed using OneNote as my tool to get stuff done on a personal and team level. My goal as a speaker is to share my insight in a way that the audience learns something new each and every time. My talks range from level 100 (inspirational keynote) to level 400 deep dive. I love using demos as examples and share how to's using PowerShell.
