Biography

Darrell Webster is the New Zealand Lead and Office 365 SME for Adopt & Embrace.
He helps organizations make the most of the Microsoft Cloud after they get there, sharing tips and productivity advice for Office 365.
Darrell's key interest is helping enterprises, businesses and schools to understand how to effectively use Office 365 online services, to work from anywhere using mobility, device and cloud technologies. He focuses on getting the knowledge to the end user, so they can make the most of the tools they have available. Darrell says "with a name like Webster, I was born to work with online services."

In previous roles, Darrell has been a Partner Technical Strategist for BitTitan and a SharePoint training specialist for ShareThePoint.com, where he delivered courses and consulting to businesses and schools in New Zealand. Darrell received the MVP award while he was employed as a Microsoft Office 365 Technical Consultant for Olympic Software. In 2008 he took a break from IT and worked delivering snail-mail as a cycling postman. He now has a deep appreciation for email and real time communications after spending hours on a bicycle, loaded with letters, magazines and packages.  
Prior to this extended IT sabbatical, Darrell worked with Office Communications Server, Remote Access and mobility technologies. He has worked supporting IT in a number of industries; printing, concrete construction, retail and medical. 
How did Darrell get his first position in the IT industry? Because he could touch type and because of his primary school teacher training.
