SPC 2012: Sharing the Point is About Much More than SharePoint…

Today, I attended a lunch sponsored Colligo and presenting the Sharing the Point Africa Tour team. As expected, we heard lots about the places they visited in Africa earlier this year and other faraway places they’ve traveled to share the SharePoint story. We learned how Colligo’s Briefcase Pro helped the team collaborate even when Internet coverage was not available. I was sitting near a guy from West Texas who hopes that sort of tool may help his engineers and field crews more efficiently repair and maintain equipment in the remote areas of Texas, which I gather sometimes must feel as remote as some of the places that the STP team has visited.

What I didn’t expect to learn at lunch was how the STP team is impacting communities in areas of the world that are underserved. These guys are really making a difference, one city at a time. Listening to their stories of the first gathering of SharePoint users in Nairobi, or the group of students that crowded the event in Beijing was truly inspiring. The encouragement and support that the STP team provides makes a real difference in the lives of people, their families, and their communities. It’s easy to take for granted the access we have to information, SharePoint user groups, SharePoint Saturdays and events like SPC 2012. Lunch today was a moment to pause and think about what it’s like to not have easy access to these things. We are fortunate to have people like the STP team in our community reaching out and reminding us that there is much more to sharing the point than SharePoint. Thanks for all you do, STP team!

Here is a video, featuring the members of the STP Africa team, that Colligo prepared for today’s Sharing the Point Africa Executive Luncheon:
