Empowering.Cloud launched, free on-demand expert video briefings for Microsoft Teams IT Pros


I am excited to say that Empowering.Cloud is now officially launched. This is something I have been working on alongside James Rodd, previous CEO of Modality and fellow Microsoft MVP Tom Morgan.

With Microsoft Teams being such a wide service with UC, Collab and apps and the constant change and pace of the cloud, it’s really hard to keep up. That’s the problem we are solving with Empowering.Cloud. We have built a platform on Azure (credit to Tom Morgan) to deliver free access to 15 minute briefings from Microsoft Teams experts, monthly updates, learning paths, quizzes and community comments and forums to ask questions and contribute your experiences.

I am really thankful to 6 industry benefactors who believe in the mission and the value of sharing knowledge, AudioCodes, AVI-SPL, Dubber, Luware, Neat and Ribbon. Thanks to their support we can offer access to Empowering.Cloud and all the briefings is completely free. We also have a premium membership option for Enterprises and Microsoft Partners who want to join live group calls, ask direct questions and have some other perks. The premium memberships will also support us in creating and supporting even more great freely accessible content.

In July, as well as a monthly update from myself and Tom Morgan, we will have expert briefings from Randy Chapman, Kevin Kieller, Lesley Crook and Graham Walsh.

You can sign up/sign in right now with your LinkedIn account or by creating an account at, we would love to see you there and appreciate your interest, support and feedback.
