Brian Reid is based in Oxford in the UK, though working with companies throughout the world. I am a subject matter experts (SME) in the entire Microsoft 365 stack and in my past spent years being an instructor of this technology to companies and to Microsoft themselves. I have written a number of books specialising in this suite of products as well. With over 30 years of experience in Microsoft and related technologies, I have been helping customers to design and integrate Microsoft 365 (including Exchange Online, Teams, OneDrive, Intune, Defender and Office), Azure Active Directory, Exchange Server and Active Directory and products that preceded even these. Additionally I am skilled at migrating cross-tenant workloads and designing your new tenant in when you perform mergers or spilting out divisions from existing companies.
