Speaker Series Event: Kimberly Friedman of Microsoft

We’re excited about the next event in the OneIT Speaker Series:

On Thursday August 2, 1-4pm in GLC 235, Kimberly Friedman of Microsoft will present on “How Collaboration Happens at Microsoft”. Describing her presentation, she says: “We have a very large matrixed company, so while some organizations have challenges with silos to break down, our challenge revolves around mastering our ability to collaborate effectively in a highly matrixed environment.” Kimberly will of course discuss how Microsoft uses software tools to address this challenge.

We anticipate that Kimberly will present for an hour or so. The remainder of the time can be used for Q-and-A and then professional networking among attendees (while enjoying GLC’s famous afternoon ice cream).
