As is custom this time of year, we opened our doors to friends and customers for an afternoon of Office 365 and SharePoint insights along with some playtime and mingling on the terrace. We think it was a great success, and hope you do too. Thanks for coming!

With our heads filled, we retired to the terrace for bubbles, punch and an amazing buffet of surf’n’turf bbq for lounging in the beautiful weather. Two chefs manned the grills and served excellent food.
