James Arber

Skype4B, MicrosoftTeams and PowerShell obsessive. MCP, Father of 4 with a hint of MadScientist and a dash of Brony.


Hi there. My name is James Arber and I’ve been working in the Unified Comms and telephony space for over ten years. From Lync and Skype setups with massive meeting room integrations to wiring up PABX frames, Installing and calibrating long range wireless and satellite links to swapping engines in cars. I’d like to think I’ve done a fair bit of everything.

I contribute a fair amount to the Skype and Microsoft Teams community with blog posts and PowerShell tools over on my Blog. as well as my new Office365 administration tool BounShell (Tenant switching for O365 PowerShell!) 

I also run a relatively small YouTube channel and Co-Host of the Melbourne Skype and Teams user group to talk all things Teams and Skype4B.

In my personal life, I live in Melbourne’s outer suburbs I'm a father for 4 kids under 12 (2 boys and 2 girls). Play far too much Destiny on Xbox and Dungeons and Dragons with local friends. Build and fly “tinywhoop” drones and other RC models. A volunteer for our local little athletics group and when I’m not busy with all of that I like working on our cars unless there broken, then it’s a bit less fun! I also might just be a little bit of a Brony.

If I'm ever out an about or at a conference. Feel free to come and see me and say “Hi”. I’m quite open about myself and activities and usually wont turn down a conversation unless I’ve got a hard deadline coming up. If you get stuck with anything Skype/Teams Voice related feel free to reach out for a hand.
