A seasoned remote worker and Teams user, himself, Vince has over ten years of experience working as a technical writer, training developer, and communications instructor. He was first introduced to Microsoft Teams in early 2019 when WestJet rolled out the platform. 

Vince helped develop and deliver the training for WestJet's Modern Office initiative as part of a stellar team that helped employees get up to speed with the powerful communication and file-sharingtechnology. The prudent and early adoption of Teams helped WestJet make the transition to the remote workforce early and prior to the COVID outbreak. Since then, Vince has made many observations with regards to constructive and non-constructive usage and has developed proven best practices based on his own experiences and research.
