The event will feature Digital Workplace Transformation and Productivity Guru Dr. Nitin Paranjape, a work efficiency optimisation expert and sought-after speaker with over 25 years in IT. His keynote ‘Envision the future of your workplace with Dr. Nitin’ will provide business leaders with opportunities to gain insights on how they could achieve more results with less effort and build a close and intelligent relationship with their employees and customers.

While at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), he was a co-founder of the Linux User Group and eventually went on to work at VA Linux, Intel, Trilogy and Sun Microsystems as a developer and consultant before joining Microsoft, 18 years ago.

Microsoft Envision Forum will help organisations to interact with customers in a new and exciting ways; empower their employees with new insights and tools; help their business to operate more efficiently; and open new opportunities never thought possible.

The event takes place on 11 September at the Lotus Ballroom, Shangri-La, Colombo from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The very next day, Microsoft will host the Inspire Sri Lanka Partner Readiness Forum, a full-day program where members of the Microsoft Partner Network learn about Microsoft’s global and regional priorities for the financial year, driving customer success with Microsoft products, programs and tools for partners to accelerate their business goals and concluding with the partner awards night rewarding outstanding performers.
