March 7, 2007 - New York SharePoint User Group - New York City
Topic:  Case Study of a Tri-State area company who needed one look and feel, but many versions of that look and feel for each company division.  I will explain how I created a single master page and changed colors and images for each sub site.

March 25-28, 2007 - SharePoint Connections Conference - Orlando, FL
SharePoint Taxonomy: How to Map Out and Plan Your MOSS 2007 Site
With the latest release of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007, taxonomy is still key to building a well organized and effective site. In this session we will look at the core components of a site that need to be addressed before development begins. Throughout the session we will clear up some of the confusions around what organizational features are available and how to best utilize them in MOSS 2007. We will address content types, page layouts, navigation, site collections and how to best incorporate Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 sites into your planned taxonomy.

CSS Can Be Your Friend: A Developers Guide to Using Styles in SharePoint
Both Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 and Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) 3.0 extensively use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) in all visual elements of the SharePoint user interface. In this session we will identify the multiple files where styles are stored, how styles should be updated, and where new styles should be placed. We will also cover the general rules of engagement for CSS and give developers a great leg up to understanding CSS and how to utilize it for their sites. Finally, we will cover some commonly used styles in a SharePoint site and demonstrate quick and easy changes to the styles that can drastically alter the look and feel of a site.

SharePoint User Adoption: Manage and Train Your Information Workers
Once you have built and deployed your SharePoint site, you have won half the battle. Now you need to show everyone in your organization how to use SharePoint. In this session we will review practices and techniques for teaching your Information Workers the ins and outs of SharePoint. We will cover helpful tools for building demos and learning guides and discuss ways to create a Help and Resource site for your end users. We will finish up the session talking about tips and tricks for running an effective Help Desk.
