Phil Topness

Phil Topness is irrationally excited about applying technology to help people better do what they need to do. He helps the world's largest organizations maximize their results from Microsoft Power Platform as part of the Power Platform Customer Advisory Team at Microsoft. Phil shows technology through live demonstrations–not slides. He speaks at national and global events, about 80 demonstrations a year. His presentations engage by showing how to leverage modern technology like cloud, low code, mixed reality and AI in real tangible ways that are built on stage in front of the audience. In addition to that, Phil is passionate about the plight of the users of the apps produced by our software and helping those users get better functionality sooner. He is also passionate about ensuring that project teams can do so with predictability and sustainability leading to better end products and work-life balance. He lives in Northern Virginia with his wife and three daughters. But he and his wife get antsy and move around, most recently living in Germany.
