Who is Vesku?

Hi there! I am Vesa “Vesku” Nopanen, a Principal Consultant and Microsoft MVP!

In this blog I share thoughts, tips, tricks and news mostly about Microsoft Teams, Power Platform and Office 365 in general, but also the topics is how to benefit on these tools on both personal and business level. I also love to talk about modern work and topics related to that.

In my early career years I was a software developer and then moved to work with SQL databases for many years as developer, DBA and lead. Later I picked up some skills in Business Intelligence, Project Management, Team Lead and my so far the latest step has been to become a Principal Consultant in Office 365.

The greatness of this position has been like Microsoft 365: it evolves with customers, my interests and tools. Just like work, it is a flexible and adjusts to needs as it covers just about everything from Digital Transformation with tools like Microsoft Teams, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Virtual Agent bots and so on.

I am also proud to say that my employer is Sulava – a born in a cloud company and a magnificent place to work at.
