Ben Lee

Ben Lee is a Senior Cloud Architect at CloudWay and a Unified Communications and Collaboration specialist working with Microsoft Team and Microsoft 365. In 2023, he was awarded as MVP M365 Apps and Services. He has spent most of his career working with the Microsoft stack of technologies and for the last 12 or so years has had a particular passion for communications tools that started with Office Communication Server.

As these tools and products have improved and evolved over the years he has worked across most of the Office 365 stack but has maintained a particular focus on Teams and has helped many organisations understand and plan their strategies to deploy and maximise their investments in these technologies. As well as being good at hands on technical deployments and troubleshooting, Ben is good at digging into and truly understanding both a business’s current issues and future requirements to then help create suitable technical strategies to meet and exceed these targets.

“I really like helping solve complex IT issues with streamlined technology solutions”- Ben Lee

He has been heavily involved in the Microsoft User Group community, including running the Evolve conference and speaking at other events such as Commsverse. More recently Ben has written a study guide for Sybex on how to study for and pass the Microsoft MS-700 Teams Administrator exam. Ben has also recently become a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). He is part of the author team of the monthly updated book, Office 365 for IT Pros, where his chapter is about Teams Voice.
