While on-site at Community Summit North America 2023, Dynamics Communities Editor Cam Sessinger interviewed Kylie Kiser, Community Summit Legend, UG Expert, Microsoft MVP, and Solution Architect at RSM Canada. In this discussion, Kylie shares her experience in the Microsoft Business Applications space and speaks to the evolution of Community Summit.
00:50 — Kylie has been using Dynamics 365 and the Power Platform for about 12 years, she explains, and an active User Group member since 2010. She describes how she “fell into” the role of a local chapter leader in Washington D.C. After leading the User Group for some time, she started presenting and co-presenting, establishing her own community within the Microsoft Business Apps world.
02:23 — Kylie shares her advice for those who are looking to enter the space. “Just get started… we always have something to share,” she notes. One of the most valuable things at Community Summit are the user stories, she continues. “So just jump in, submit a session, or just start blogging!”
03:37 — In speaking on trends in the community and the evolution of Summit, Kylie notes how attendance has grown exponentially. “The community is growing, there’s so much opportunity here. It’s a great time to get involved.” In addition to the community that’s grown, Kylie explains how the products have grown, too. “There are so many new tools, and I encourage people to learn all about these tools,” such as Microsoft Copilot and the rise of artificial intelligence.
