The SharePoint Practitioners Group is aimed for SharePoint users to share guidance documents and knowledge, learn from each other, with the ultimate goal of delivering outstanding information and records management processes within our respective organisations.  The Group is co-Chaired by Michele Noad (Somerset Council) and Melody Allsebrook (Inform-Consult Ltd).  

The ‘2Ms’ met through a SharePoint users meeting in 2012 and soon discovered that they shared a like-minded passion and enthusiasm for SharePoint and for encouraging best practice information management.  They started the group with just a few organisations joining in and showcasing at their meetings, and have ended up as the ‘Pied Pipers’, gaining followers from across the country. Michele and Melody say that ‘innovation’ is their middle name
