Get to know our Incrementalists who will be speaking at the biggest and free Microsoft Cloud Community Event this summer.

 

It’s the fourth year of this widely renowned Microsoft Community event and this year, Scottish Summit is bigger and better than ever! Taking place on 10th and 11th June 2022, this is your chance to hear the latest and greatest in Microsoft technology trends, innovations and partner initiatives from professionals in the field with vast knowledge and experience.

Scottish Summit brings together advocates of the Microsoft ecosystem in one place at an EU community event; answering questions, teaching best practices and demonstrating real world solutions live and in-person. In 2022, the learning and development sessions span two whole days to cater for huge demand and an influx of highly talented speakers looking to inspire the entire community.

This year, we have 5 Incrementalists who have secured dedicated speaking slots across the conference. They are:

 

David Stewart – Microsoft Dynamics 365 CE and Power Platform Enterprise Architect – and Claire Carmichael – Head of Capital Markets

Sales & Delivery – the expectation vs reality battle

With Incremental being a gold sponsor of Scottish Summit, David and Claire will be hosting a sponsor session where they will discuss the pre-conceptions and expectations of the sales and delivery process. Claire commented, “Scottish Summit is the highlight of our industry events calendar. Having been part of the crew since the first D365 Saturday back in 2019 – I can’t wait to rub shoulders, if this is allowed within the Covid regulations, with the best and brightest in our industry and give them a proper Glaswegian welcome. This will be my first Scottish Summit Session since becoming an Incrementalist and I’m really excited to be there in person with my colleague and worthy opponent David Stewart.”

Equally as eager, David said, “Having benefited from the learnings and connections I’ve made at Scottish Summit over the years, it is a real honour to step up to the front of the room and share my knowledge with the community. I’m looking forward to going head-to-head with one of Incremental’s resident MVPs, my dear friend, Claire Carmichael, and putting our reputations on the line in such a public forum. Let the battle commence!”

 

Damien Bird – Microsoft 365 Consultant

Developing fast and efficient Power Automate Flows

Excited for the event, Damien expressed , “It’s my first time at the Scottish Summit event and I’m looking forward to catching up with existing community friends, meeting new faces, sharing ideas and learning from others.” Damien’s speaker session showcases a bunch of techniques to increase the performance of your Power Automate flows as well as reducing the number of API actions required for them to complete.

 

Areti Iles – Lead Dynamics 365 CE and Power Platform Consultant

Customer Voice and a Canvas App: Get more from your surveys

Areti’s session will provide a demo of the key features of Customer Voice including how to extend Customer Voice functionality using the Power Platform  by utilising a canvas app to gather survey responses in person/on site. Areti commented, “Everyone in the Microsoft community has something to share with others and we all have areas we need to learn more about with the product stack expanding so rapidly. The summit is a great way to keep up to date with the latest innovations but also meet new people in the industry and have some fun along the way.”

 

Craig McGeough – Dynamics 365 CE/ Power Platform Pre-Sales Consultant

More than “selling the dream”! Why Pre-Sales is the key to Power Platform success

Describing Scottish Summit as “the best community event for the Power Platform  community,” Craig’s session will discuss why Pre-Sales is much more than just selling the Power Platform dream. The session will discuss how effective Pre-Sales can open new opportunities, inspire and engage user adoption, enable a focused, empowered delivery team, harness relationships between sales and delivery and allow us to produce long-term product roadmaps. “I’m excited to attend this year’s Scottish Summit event and it’s a real honour to be hosting a session, especially on Pre-Sales, which is often under-appreciated on the channel,” Craig said.
