Microsoft PAL Initiative overview and Worldwide PAL list

  • Comments 12

If you took a moment to read through my, “Who’s my PAL? And why haven't I heard about this?” post earlier regarding the Microsoft PAL initiative, I shared that the slated time for the official Microsoft PAL information to be posted to the Microsoft Partner site and listed in the Microsoft SBSC Newsletter is September.  Until those items post, here is some more information about the Microsoft PAL initiative and a list of who the current Microsoft SBSC PALs are.

 

The Microsoft PAL initiative recognizes and thanks outstanding Microsoft Small Business Specialist partners for their community participation and willingness to help other Microsoft partners who serve entrepreneurial and midsized customers. The PAL designation is given to exceptional Microsoft’s Small Business Specialists who lead and foster the involvement of other Microsoft partners in their respective communities around implementing best business practices and supporting customers. The PAL designation recognizes the most active Small Business Specialists from around the world who provide invaluable online and offline expertise that enriches the Microsoft partner community focused on delivering Microsoft’s small and midsized business products.

 

According to Marie Huwe, General Manager, Partner Strategy and Programs at Microsoft Corp. “PALs represent the most community-oriented Small Business Specialist partners who are willing to help other partners focused on entrepreneurial and midsized customers.”
