Who is Vesku?

Hi! I am Vesku Nopanen, a Principal Consultant, MVP and a Benefit Miner!

In this blog I share thoughts, tips, tricks and news mostly about Microsoft Teams 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 – that is in other words employee experience. Tools itself are nothing if people in your organization don’t use or know how to utilize them.

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 Office 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 (and it’s tools like PowerApps, Flow, Integrations, Forms) via Enterprise Social (Yammer) and traditional Intranet (Modern SharePoint <3) to User Interface of work (Teams and teamwork).
