"Ask Microsoft" (Open Q&A Session)
Matt Hester & Bill Steele from Microsoft, Inc.
Microsoft Representatives Matt Hester (Irving, TX) and Bill Steele (Great Lakes District),
will be our featured presenters on Wednesday June 15th.
Topics were bantered about and finally as everyone thought that most of the times what happens at the end of a
presentation was the best part of the evening... so an open Q/A session has been planned.
Matt Hester is a TechNet Presenter on the Microsoft Seminar Sales Team (SST).
Prior to joining the SST Matt was a Messaging and Collaboration Technology Specialist.
Matt has several years' experience with Microsoft core infrastructure products (Windows, Active Directory,
Exchange… etc.) and is a Microsoft Exchange Server Insider. He has additional expertise in the business value of
technology including using Meta and Gartner tools. Prior to joining Microsoft, Matt taught MSCE curricula at MCT
for over eight years.
William (Bill) Steele, MCSD, is the Developer Community Champion supporting the Great Lakes district. Bill has more than
15 years of experience as a software developer, working with developers, IT managers and organizations. Prior to joining
Microsoft, Bill worked for Regional Consulting Firm, where he developed applications that managed the internal operations
