About the Author

paul-cunningham-800pxPaul Cunningham is a Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services. Based in Brisbane, Australia, he works as an independent consultant, writer and trainer for clients around the world.

I've been in the IT industry since 1999, working for a variety of IT organizations, managed service providers, and consulting companies. Early in my career I began specializing in Microsoft Exchange Server, performing deployments and migrations for customers, and eventually finding my way into a dedicated messaging team for one of Australia's largest companies. After 17 years in the industry I began working as an independent consultant for local and remote customers.

In 2012 I received my first Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for Exchange Server. Along with other Exchange MVPs, my MVP title was changed to Office Servers and Services to reflect the shift in the industry towards cloud services like Office 365.

I write books, including self-publishing several ebooks and migration guides for Exchange Server, share PowerShell scripts and tools, and I'm also a co-author of Office 365 for IT Pros, currently in its fourth edition. I'm also an author for Pluralsight, creating video training courses for IT pros, and have written for Microsoft Press.
