01:26 — There are a few things happening in the industry that TechFluent is looking to address, such as a lack of resources. Additionally, the organization realized that “there’s really a need in our communities to uplift and basically change the shape of our country” through Dynamics 365, and bringing it closer to communities to educate and promote it.

03:22 — As part of the TechFluent scholarship program, learners had to create and lead presentations, and learn about the Microsoft Dynamics 365 products. Diaz notes that “we’ve been doing this for so long that a new perspective is what’s going to change the game here.”

04:43 — Ryan notes how Community Summit North America is a great place for TechFluent scholars to be, as it promotes networking opportunities and professional connections.

07:49 — Phil shares his thoughts on his journey with TechFluent. For those who are coming from a different professional or educational background, the mentors and technology provided by TechFluent are what you need. The excitement for Summit is real, he explains, as it gives learners the opportunity to network and grow to further develop their futures.

10:05 — Rahel explains that she has started adding Sessions to her Show Planner, many of which are focused on the Power Platform and Power Automate.

12:13 — Tefassech notes how she is passionate about finding a role as a data analyst. “I want to become proficient in advanced data analytics… Beyond that, I envision transitioning into the data science role.” She notes that her training from TechFluent gave her a good vision and as such, she feels confident about the future.

18:14 — Part of Phil’s immediate goal is to become proficient in one of the products in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 technology stack, likely Power BI due to his previous role as a production assistant. Similar to TechFluent, Phil is passionate about giving back to the community.
