Previously, it’s been very easy for Microsoft Partners to turn up and just listen to what’s being said – this in my view is a waste of everyone’s time since a lot of the information can be gleaned from online resources or simply picking up the phone and asking the very people presenting. Instead, it would be great if those in attendance used the time constructively i.e. if you aren’t getting any value as a partner then use the opportunity to tell someone and resolve it. It’s also a great networking opportunity, a bit like your local monthly IT Professional Group meeting but with a bunch of unfamiliar faces who you can learn from.
