The great folks from GPUG share this news of an upcoming event completely dedicated to Microsoft Dynamics GP partners. I hope you can carve out some time to attend as discussions focused on the Microsoft Partner Network are always very hot topics. Watch for more Virtual Town Hall Meetings to be communicated throughout the next several months.
To continue to optimize the value delivered through the Microsoft Dynamics GP channel, it’s important for Microsoft Dynamics GP VARs and ISVs to have open connections with Microsoft Dynamics GP leaders. The Microsoft Dynamics GP Partner Connections (GPPC) plays an important role in helping connect and acting as an advocate for partners and Microsoft. One of the ways that channel members can hear from and be heard by key Microsoft Dynamics GP executives is through participation in GPPC’s quarterly Virtual Town Hall Meetings. In these radio talk-show style calls, GPPC Director Kim Peterson will talk to Microsoft Dynamics GP leaders about hot topics that affect Microsoft Dynamics GP partners, and participants will have the opportunity to submit their own questions or topics to be addressed during the call. The events help build competencies in the partner community and provide a way to keep key Microsoft executives in tune with the issues and topics that affect Microsoft Dynamics GP partners.
Who Should Attend? All Microsoft Dynamic GP VARs and ISVs are welcome to attend Town Hall Meetings.
Upcoming Town Hall Meeting
The next Town Hall Meeting is Wednesday, October 19 at 10:00am Pacific and features Microsoft's Jeff Edwards, Director of Channel Strategy. This meeting will focus on the Microsoft Partner Network (MPN) transition to Pay for Performance, which will take effect in January 2012. Dial in to understand Microsoft’s perspective on how the changes are landing and the impacts and opportunities for the Microsoft Dynamics GP Channel. You’re also invited to submit your own questions that will be covered in the partner Q&A portion of the call. Please submit your questions to Kim@GPUG.com prior to the event with the subject line ‘Jeff Edwards.’
