About the Program

Zero to SharePoint Business Hero! This program is unique in the SharePoint industry and is designed to turn an employee with no SharePoint experience into a SharePoint superstar quite capable of managing a large site collection / project / platform. The objective is a train-the-trainer type scenario to enable the candidate to give ongoing training, demos, support and maintain the SharePoint environments and users allocated to them. It is a long term program with very specific pre-requisites. Not everyone will qualify for this, but it will truly change your life forever if you do.

Graduates Feedback on This Program

“The world of work has changed considerably over the past two decades. Employees are now expected to do more with less resources, as well as always ‘being on’ in a 24/7 world. Having a mentor, someone who can guide and advise you, who you can talk freely with, will make your career journey smoother and more enjoyable. Mentors are essential to career success, and if you find a mentor that is right for you, the experience is an informal education. I moved to the Architecture team in Absa when we first implemented the SharePoint team sites. Veronique was the perfect mentor for me. We had the same thinking when it came to Customer service. I will never forget her words when she said to me “remember the customer is always King”!! It was a challenging but exiting ride for us. Everything was new to me until I met Veronique. She mentored me from day one right through to where I could run the whole team sites environment on my own. I did not have any experience and she assisted me step by step on how to be a successful customer centric SharePoint consultant. Veronique was my role model who shared her knowledge and advice to help me grow professionally.  I benefited from a mentoring relationship because I had someone with greater knowledge and experience to turn to for advice. While Veronique never did my job for me, she demonstrated a task, guided me through solving a problem, or critiqued my work. She helped me feel less isolated at work, too, and encouraged me to interact more with the users by demonstrating SharePoint. She also provided me with tips on career growth and introduced me to other professionals. The program benefited me to become more self-directed and develop stronger communication and problem-solving skills. This allows for a business to become more creative and focus its attention on growth, rather than training. As I matured in my career, Veronique still remain a valued adviser to me.” Bernadette Paterson, Absa SharePoint Specialist
“On being asked by Veronique to please write an endorsement on my experiences during my SharePoint Mentorship Program with her, my first thought was that of the age old question ‘Which came first, the chicken or the egg?’ Did I fall in love with Veronique first and then SharePoint, or was it the other way around?  The truth is, in my experience anyway, the two are inextricably linked. To know Veronique is to love her and SharePoint.  The passion Veronique has for SharePoint, and for life, is super contagious and I couldn’t help but be swept up in the excitement of it all. It all began as a bit of a catastrophe really and a bit of old fashioned Googling.  I was presented with a platform (SharePoint – what’s that?) and a request to make it work for a new marketing campaign.  And so to Google … and from there to Lets Collaborate and Veronique.  What started out with Veronique building a site on a hosted 2003 platform in mid-2013 for us has evolved into me taking an Intranet live on SharePoint 2010 in August of this year (2014).  It has been an incredible journey which has included formal SharePoint 2010 classroom training and one-one-one time with Veronique as well as personal growth and development from a business point of view.  Lets Collaborate has a passion for SharePoint that is absolutely contagious and I now find myself happily ensconced in a new career path filled with excitement, drama and some very special friends.  Life without SharePoint? Too horrible to contemplate!”  Maureen Zulberg, Voltex SharePoint Site Collection Administrator
