May 2 Was Video Day: Our Yammer Customer Story

I’m still exhilarated.

Exhausted, yeah, still a little bit. But the exhilaration hasn’t stopped.

The excitement was contagious:

My whole company (the Crisis Prevention Institute) got excited when I told them the news: After talking with the wonderful Connie Woo at Microsoft about what we did as an organization and how Yammer has helped us supplement and enhance our mission inside and out, she got excited, and within a matter of days we were hooked up with Allytics, a creative marketing firm based out of Redmond, and a local film crew, Creative Edge Productions.

My best friend, there for moral support as well as being one of the interviewees later in the day, took this picture for posterity of me being interviewed by Jim DeGroot:

Video day!

(Secret: This really is an empty floor of our building. Great space for the major interviews. Then it was back to our own two floors for real live footage.)

We had a blast with the film crew.  And fortunately they had a blast with us, as they were with us the whole day. And we can’t wait to see the final product!

Out Here On the Friday Five!

I’m happy each time I’m included on the Friday Five, part of the Microsoft MVP Award program!

This link will take you to my feature, “How I Went From English Major to Yammer Community Manager,” as well as blogs on O365 Advanced Security Management, Node.js Git deployment in Azure App Service, and two episodes about PowerShell for Office365 and a light-hearted discussion about life as an IT professional!

I’ve only included this brain because it’s cool and I used to have it as desktop wallpaper:
