It literally seems like only yesterday I was assisting with coordination of the inaugural Business Leader Roadshow back in January 2009. Although, my contribution was fairly light compared to individuals like Brent Combest, the regional field sales teams, and the folks from Salesworks. This type of training focused on business owners as well as sales and marketing managers was something partners had be requesting for a number of years. As I recall, the 2009 events zeroed in on partner growth and profitability.

Well, it’s time again to start thinking about and registering for the 2012 Business Leader Roadshow! Our partner readiness teams shares this detailed information.

Please make plans to attend this annual event designed to help partners drive revenue and profit growth, and ultimately thrive in a changing economic landscape.

This premier leadership event is an invaluable opportunity to collaborate with, and learn from business development experts, Microsoft field and business leadership, and your peers. With 12 months of vital insight and learning since our last gathering, this year’s event takes a deep look at what successful partners have done to align their businesses for greater impact and results.

New for 2012! This year we are incorporating breakout tracks in order to provide more specific insight and guidance relative to the unique operating structures required by the markets our partners serve.
