How Information Architecture can improve in SharePoint 2013 with Virgil Carroll
In this session, Virgil will walk attendees through the differences between 2007, 2010 and the new SharePoint 2013 from an information architecture perspective. He will identify the new and improved features set such as more flexible navigation structures, cross-site collection publishing, improvements to managed metadata and search. The discussion will wrap up with how businesses can use 2013 to support better user findability and putability.

About the Speaker
High Monkey Consulting began when one technologically-gifted man envisioned a consulting company that would join business expertise and technological savvy--with a touch of humor thrown in for good measure. Virgil grew up as an Alaskan fisherman, so he knows that life, like business, can be smooth sailing one minute and stormy seas the next. His ability to stay calm and clear-headed through the storms of business has been a valuable asset to many companies and individuals throughout the years. After graduating from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks with a degree in Sports Medicine and then attaining a Masters in Instructional Design from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, Virgil decided to put his myriad talents to good use and formed High Monkey Consulting and is its Chief Primate (aka President).
When Virgil speaks technology he does it from a business person’s point of view. You won’t find his talks clouded with “tech geek” speak. Virgil has an expansive breadth of knowledge and speaks objectively about a variety of subjects. Some of his previous speaking “gigs” include: International SharePoint Conferences, Best Practice Conferences, and about a dozen SharePoint Saturday and User Group events annually across the United States.
