MVP Award 2019-2020

Matthew McDermott, MVP I am proud to announce that I been awarded the Most Valuable Professional award by Microsoft for my contributions to the community in the area of Office Apps and Services for the 13th year. The MVP Award is Microsoft’s way of saying “Thanks!” to community leaders for their contributions.

For me giving back to the community is part of my passion. I love to teach and help folks learn how to realize their goals through the application of technology. Microsoft technologies exceed their users needs and help us all work more effectively. When I am asked about how I am challenged I usually explain that Technology today is moving at an incredible pace. End users are tasked with getting their jobs done, not learning the latest widget. I try to help users by teaching them how new features change the way ‘they always used to do it’. That’s the challenge, improving our daily processes by effectively using the software. Not jumping to the next thing just because it’s new.

I must point out that I do not do this alone. Without the generosity of the Microsoft Product Teams and fellow MVPs I could not do what I do. They share their plans and ideas so we can give them feedback. This helps the MVPs to give feedback early and often so that features are truly impactful for our customers.
