About Us

The Commsverse Team Picture

We are (from the left) Martin Boam, Randy Chapman, Mark Vale and Philippa Digby and we are the organising team here at Commsverse. Our passion for building strong communities and friendships between like-minded people drives us make Commsverse better each year.

Martin works as an Architect at Microsoft, Randy is a Presales Specialist at Logitech, Mark is the Chief Product Officer at Callroute and Philippa is the Marketing Manager, also of Callroute.  We use our industry experience in Microsoft Teams and devote our spare time into organising Commsverse into the best Teams focussed conference we can possibly achieve. Our companies do not pay us for this effort and we take no salary from the event. All proceeds through sponsorship and ticket sales is invested into the event.


We wanted to create a technology first event for technologists to share and learn from each others experiences. Ultra-focussed on improving working knowledge of Microsoft Teams that will benefit organisations of any size. Commsverse, is not your average conference. Being niche and small means that we can and do go above and beyond to ensure all your needs are taken care of. We like to think of Commsverse as an experience for everyone and a place that Microsoft Teams enthusiasts can network with the entire community.


What is a Community Conference? A community conference is a conference born from the passion and spirit of people who work within the technology area the conference is aimed towards serving. Unlike mainstream events that are purely about profits and sales, community events do not operate for profit. They operate for the sole purpose of building a stronger, closer community of like-minded people who want to share their experiences with each other.

At a community conference, the content shared is often a lot more valuable because it is based on grass roots, real-world, practical experience and not glorified marketing or sales focused content.

What's in it for Exhibitors?

Although Commsverse is a community event without a focus on profit, we offer exhibitors incredible value and return for sponsoring our events.

  • Access to the industry’s top influencers
  • 100% single technology focussed attendees
  • Quality conversations that can lead to bigger things
  • Opportunity to be seen within the community
  • Network with potential customers in a more natural environment

What's in it for Attendees?

We created Commsverse because we were tired of going to mainstream events and being force fed sales pitches disguised as technical sessions. We wanted to create a conference that was primarily focussed on enhancing the learning of technical professionals who want raw access to content that really makes a difference.

At Commsverse, you will learn from the best in the industry and will gain knowledge and understanding far beyond anything else on offer in the market.


Commsverse is run by volunteers. We do not pay ourselves and we rely on the generosity of the community to help us get through the event each year. We are always on the look out for volunteers to help us at our events. While we cannot offer you money for your efforts we can offer you the bragging rights that you helped to deliver one of the most anticipated and prestigious community events on the calendar.

We’re looking for

  • Session Room Managers
  • Registration Helpers
  • Technical Support
  • Customer Service Representatives


Each role requires some commitment from you. This may involve pre-event training, some responsibilities to deliver a product and your presence at the event for the entire event schedule (pre-day plus event days). If you can commit approx 3 hours a month, plus the event days, then we are interested in hearing from you.
