About me

Hannah Swain

My name is Hannah Swain and I worked as a SharePoint consultant in the Netherlands and Sweden from September 2007 – March 2016.

As of March 2016, I have changed my focus to the open-source world; this blog will no longer be updated. This site will remain available for the foreseeable future.

My SharePoint specialties:

  • Information architecture
  • Content management
  • Document management
  • Collaboration
  • Requirements analysis
  • Technical project management
  • Training on SharePoint
  • Speaking about SharePoint in the SharePoint community (also known as SharePoint Saturdays)
  • Helping to make people excited to use SharePoint and Office! 🙂

My SharePoint knowledge can be summed up as “everything you can do out of the box”. I focus on getting the requirements right and turning those into a strong foundation for the solution’s (information) architecture.

I’m a big fan of the following because I think they really do bring added value to end-users:

I keep this blog as a place to write down useful things that I’ve discovered while working with SharePoint. I believe the SharePoint community is a very important thing and want to support it as well as contribute by writing my own experiences.

When I’m not talking about how incredibly cool SharePoint is, you’ll find me doing one of the following:

  • Watching geeky TV show like Doctor Who and Battlestar Galactica
  • Knitting socks and sweaters
  • Reading epic fantasy books (Robin Hobb is one of my top favorite authors!)
  • Traveling the world, preferably while reading and knitting
