This Friday – 26th June, Microsoft will be holding a workshop in Sydney (from 8am-5pm to help Microsoft shape our plan to better support our Registered Partner base.  We have some open spots for Registered level partners to attend who are Sydney based to provide their input (especially those of you who resell our software and also ISVs).  Microsoft want to understand how and what we can do better to support you.  If you are interested please email Sarah Theiss on sarahth@microsoft.com and she will provide you with details.

The day will start at 8am with a breakfast session with our executive management to set the scene for the day.  After breakfast we will move into a broader session to explain the current situation, to understand your thinking, and to collaborate on potential solutions in a workshop situation.  We plan to build agreement that the framework is sound, and to have an actionable plan in FY10.  We will finish the day with some casual drinks.

Partners participating will be provided with a complementary ticket (value $1295) to the Australian Partner Conference to be held 2-5 September on the Gold Coast in Queensland.
