Office 365 Distilled podcast: Distilling Office 365 with a little barley

What if you take the 2 things you love in this world? For us, it is Office 365 and its ability to connect collaborative people. Combine that with a nice glass of single malt and you connect collaborative people… Just the location changes.
The result is “Office 365 Distilled”!
