It’s not long until we will be making our way to the beautiful city of Amsterdam for another jam-packed week full of learning, networking, and fun! But as well as all that good stuff, this year we are placing a special emphasis on recognising and awarding those who have made a lasting impact on the Microsoft 365 community.
The Microsoft 365 community is, as we know it to be, a diverse and vibrant group of professionals who share their knowledge, skills, and passion for technology. They are the ones who drive innovation, collaboration, and positive change in the industry and beyond – those who inspire us to learn, grow, and achieve more. They are the people who carve the path for us to follow, and the ones who radiate positive energy and demonstrate leadership within our community.
But how often do we get to show our appreciation and recognition for these amazing people… to celebrate their achievements and contributions to the community?
What are the ESPC Inspire Awards?
The ESPC Inspire Awards are a platform for doing just that – recognising and rewarding excellence and innovation across nine distinct categories that reflect the different aspects and values of the Microsoft 365 community. These categories are:
🏆 Best Community Contributor
🏆 Best Podcast
🏆 Best YouTube Channel
🏆 Best Online Courses
🏆 Diversity Leader Award
🏆 Tech Trailblazer Award
🏆 Wellness Champion
🏆 Mentorship Award
