Project Online, Planner & Teams: The winning combination

Hi lovely readers,

The webinarOn the 12th of December 2017 I took a deep dive, into “the world of webinars”! Microsoft offered Projectum and myself a platform to talk about our view on Project Management and the tools Microsoft has to offer.
