Meet Greg Zelfond, SharePoint Expert

Thanks for stopping by to check out SharePoint Maven! Here’s a quick run down of what I’m all about. I’ve been a SharePoint geek and advocate for over 10 years, and here’s why:

1. I love order and organizing things
2. I love simplicity

Managing a team or a project is complicated enough. You need a tool that gets the job done then gets out of your way. SharePoint can be that tool for you, if you set it up right. That’s where I come in. As a SharePoint Consultant, I have helped countless businesses and nonprofits to use SharePoint to facilitate team collaboration, simplify project management, and streamline document management. From creating simple but intuitive intranet portals to developing implementation strategies and site architectures, I develop SharePoint solutions that help you get things done quickly and accurately.

I also believe in sharing what I’ve learned. My blog subscribers have relied on my in-depth posts to learn best practices for document management, implementation, metadata, and more. As an acknowledged SharePoint expert, I’ve also been invited to speak at events such as SharePoint Saturday and Project Management Insitute.

The SharePoint Maven Difference

After over 10 years of experience with SharePoint, I’ve learned a thing or two about successfully implementing a SharePoint environment. You’ll discover that I use formal project management methodologies (like agile) to ensure implementation’s success, quickly creating your new sites and then making changes as we go along. Other key benefits:

  • Cost-effective solutions that fit your budget
  • Unbiased consulting and recommendations
  • Stress-free implementation
  • Keen business analysis
  • Zero sweet talk about additional software add-ons or expensive consulting services
  • Built-in project management to keep SharePoint implementation on track


Where are you located?

I live in Ottawa, Canada. But I work globally.

Do you do business with clients outside of USA and Canada?

Even though I live in Canada, Office 365/SharePoint’s ‘cloud’ technology permits me to operate virtually. In other words, I don’t need to come to your office to customize SharePoint for you. I serve clients on all 7 continents. The only continent I don’t have clients at yet is Antarctica. 🙂

What industries do you serve?

I work with a wide spectrum of businesses and non-profits including: Real Estate, Finance, Information Technology, Medical/Health, Non-Profit, Engineering, Retail & Government.

Are you really an expert in SharePoint?

I try to use word ‘expert’ carefully. Truth of the matter is, SharePoint is a very complicated system and you can’t be an expert in all of its aspects. That being said, I have led a number of SharePoint implementations over the years and accumulated lots of great skills and knowledge to make your future SharePoint implementation successful.

What size of organization do you work with?

I work with any size of organization. Still, most of my clients are small (5-10 people) to medium (up to 1,000 users) businesses and non-profits. Most of my clients need help with Office 365/SharePoint out-of-the-box and need to setup proper site and information architecture within their organizations. Larger organizations typically require technically sophisticated and complex SharePoint configurations and interfaces and those needs are best served by larger consulting firms.



Thank you for the hard work you put in to get our SharePoint / Office 365 system up an running. It has made our work so much easier and significantly more organized. You were such a fantastic asset and we can’t thank you enough.

- Global non-profit organization with offices in US and Asia
