In past years, I've managed both the Microsoft Dynamics GP and Business Leadership tracks at Convergence Partner Briefings. While these events and sessions were highly rated by partners, we always received feedback from partners that they'd like to spend more time with their customers. Therefore, it's exciting to see that we made some changes to the Partner Briefings this year by going virtual, which may also allow more employees at partner organizations the opportunity to participate. Official announcement below from PartnerSource...

In an effort to better assist you in your preparations for hosting your customers at Convergence and via a unanimous decision by our Convergence Partner Advisory Council, we’re offering a new way to brief partners prior to the customer event. We’re transforming the traditional live briefing day with a Virtual Partner Briefing—scheduled prior to your trip to Atlanta. Our goal is to energize your efforts to host your customers at Convergence 2010. This way we can share relevant information with you before you arrive. You can share details with your customers early and plan the best event experience for them in advance. We will share more details about the Virtual Partner Briefings via PartnerSource in late January.

Also, take part in building the excitement and starting your interactions early through Convergence social media engines:
