    We caught up on routes into IT that might not be the traditional way, life changing events such as having a new born and generally catching up on what he now does with Microsoft and keeps his work life organised.

    I caught up with Mike Danoski Principal Program Manager at Microsoft in the Intune team. We discussed Policy in Intune, how it's changed and still changing... organising calendar and emails and how it's not always a 9to5 life.

    TechLife Episode 4 - Ben Whitmore at MMS 2022

    While at MMS in May 2022, I was able to catch a few people to sit down with and have a quick chat.

    I caught up with Ben Whitmore, Consultant and and new MVP in Enterprise Mobility. We mainly talk technology in this episode as that's Ben's passion, but as we discuss, you need to know when to close the laptop and get some downtime.

    Apologies in advance for the audio in this episode, we had lots of interference with the main audio recording source so had to fall to the backup which didn't handle our location great, but it was a good episode so didn't want to miss it out!

    Tech/Life Trailer

    Welcome to balancing Life with Tech, otherwise known as the Tech/Life Podcast...

    Listen in with us to get insights from various people within the Technology world across Microsoft, Cloud, Desktop Management, Datacentres, productivity... but... not just tech talk.

    I'm looking to balance the conversation with understanding the individual person as well.

    Great, they might be a Rockstar or Microsoft MVP, but what makes them tick.

    How do they learn? what keeps them sane and fills their life with joy?
    What stops them murdering the next person they have to ask if they've turned it off and on again?
