Office 365 Hands-On Challenge Committee Members

John S. Moh

John MohJohn’s passion and priority is all about driving adoption of O365 at large Federal Executive Departments using the PSL process (Personas, Scenarios, and Learning Events). Currently, he is a Principal Consultant at Microsoft in the Adoption and Change Management (ACM) Global Practice and the Business Productivity Americas Practice.

Jumping over from Avanade in early 2005, John started out as an Enterprise Strategy Consultant at Microsoft in the Washington DC Area. His desire to be more technical drove him to complete the Exchange “Ranger” program (Microsoft Certified Master), landing him on some of the most politically and technically challenging projects in Public Sector. Eventually, John’s desire to be more impactful led him to Redmond WA, where he shipped Xbox Live as a Senior Program Manager. Today, he is back in the Washington DC Area working on ACM and SharePoint solutions creating cookbooks of RSPIs (ReusableSharePoint Ideas – pronounced “recipes”). His work in SharePoint can be summed up in this statement: focus not on SharePoint use but the usefulness of SharePoint!

Rima Reyes

Rima ReyesRima Reyes is currently a Senior Consultant at Microsoft for Office 365 and SharePoint. Rima's main focus is to move large-scale Federal Government agencies into the Microsoft Cloud. Having 12+ years of SharePoint experience as well, Rima came to understand the end user adoption dilemma. Pivoting her technical career while at Microsoft, Rima is paving a new path for Office 365 adoption by establishing the End User Adoption Framework and by being a Prosci Certified Change Management Practitioner. Her passion for people and tech become one as she hopes to help everyone on the planet achieve greatness with Office 365.

Outside of her customer focus, Rima is also a Master Trainer, helping other employees learn and grow within Microsoft. She also supports her local user groups, Women in SharePoint DC and The Federal SharePoint Users Group, by being their official Microsoft Sponsor.

Matt Wade

Matt WadeMatt is an engineer-turned IT nerd. His career began designing mechanical systems for nuclear reactors for the US Navy. SharePoint 2007 rolled out soon after and he leveraged it to organize design documents, contracts, and drawings dating back decades; for better or worse, a new power user was born. The IT department needed some help, so he led adoption for a few years following, including the user adoption sides of upgrading to SharePoint 2013. Next, he spent a couple years in the US Virgin Islands where he led the organization’s migration from SharePoint 2013 to SharePoint Online. Today he consults internationally on Office 365 migration and adoption. He’s recently found himself neck deep in AI and bots. He’s worked in environments ranging from government to private sector; fewer than one hundred users to thousands; strictly secure to eh-good-enough; custom to out-of-the-box; snowed-in to palm tree-laden.
