Mark is a connector

I enjoy the way Mark connects the dots along with his guests - from personal journeys to technical strategy and architecture to trends to human experience to community and more... For anyone looking to learn about the people behind Power Platform and Dynamics 365 - at Microsoft and the community - I’d highly recommend subscribing. Cheers.
