Short Topics & Discussion Forum

For our May 7 event, we are planning a different format than the usual guest speakers. We invite you to join us for a program of short, informal, topics presented by our own members and guests! The goal is to provide a variety of practical topics while encouraging discussions and questions for our panel. Personal experiences often prove valuable in learning. 

These are some ideas we have had:

Members are invited to give a short 10-15 minute presentation on a particular SharePoint feature, project, or development/implementation project. It could be as simple as highlighting 3-5 major lessons learned or key findings. Or, you might provide valuable "tips and tricks". For example, you might want to share your experiences and speak on how SharePoint is leveraged within your organization and which features are most popular.

Potential topics could include:

  • Favourite Design/Development tool
  • Importance of SharePoint Governance
  • Cloud-based challenges in Office 365
  • Worst or Best SharePoint solution from a support perspective
  • Driving user adoption in a new SP implementation

The format will be informal and might not necessarily include slides. However, any resources or reference materials would be made available to participants through the VanSPUG website.

At the end of the presentations, time permitting, the floor will be open for you to ask questions or raise specific discussions around the topics that have been presented. These would be moderated and facilitated.

 Your feedback is key!

  1. We are inviting volunteers to present a short topic or act as a panel member.
  2. Ideas on what topics you would like to hear about will be welcome!

If you would like to volunteer, or have feedback or suggestions for us on ideas and topics, we would like to hear from you!

Please send your ideas and feedback to:
