I’ll be presenting at 6:00 PM Nov. 3rd at Microsoft in Las Colinas for the DFW IT Professionals Users Group.  Here is a description of the session:

Come see how Lync can improve communications in your organization and give new tools for interacting with your peers, partners and customers including instant messaging, desktop sharing, voice, video and collaboration all from a single client that is integrated with the rest of the Microsoft Office suite. We’ll demonstrate Lync including communicating with Federated partners and show it’s native integration with other Microsoft products such as SharePoint and Outlook.
