Together with my co-host Claire Smyth, we met Rory Neary, Samit Saini and Jese Navaranjan - 3 passionate people from the Power Platform community.

  • Claire Smyth is the Community Program Manager for Microsoft UK and Ireland, and runs the Microsoft MVP and RD programmes.

  • Rory Neary is a Power Platform Specialist, Community Organiser and Microsoft MVP for Business Applications. He runs the PowerApps4Kids community in London and is currently creating a Power Platform training series.

  • Samit Saini is an IT Specialist at London's Heathrow Airport and a Microsoft MVP. He previously worked as a Security Guard at Heathrow, and PowerApps inspired his career change to IT.

  • Jese Navaranjan is a Senior Consultant at Microsoft Partner Altius, and is also an MCSE, as well as a passionate community contributor. She previously worked at Heathrow (alongside Samit!) on PowerBI, and is now primarily focused on PowerApps.
