image From 5:00 – 6:00 PM on Monday, July 13th at Worldwide Partner Conference, I have the pleasure of hosting the, “SMB002 Help Your Customers Reduce IT Costs and Risks and Strengthen Your Business” session, which will be in rooms 218 & 219. Joining me will be Andy Trish, founder of NCI Technologies out of the UK, SBS MVP, and SBSC PAL, and Arnold Bogaards, Sr. Marketing Manager at Microsoft. During this session, we will be talking about simplifying client’s IT environment, minimizing network disruptions, and keeping important data highly secure. Hear current IT pain points for SMB customers and learn from Andy, a leading Partner, how you can build your business by becoming--or strengthening your role as--a trusted advisor to your customers, while helping your customers resolve their key pain points.

In this session, Arnold will be discussing trends and market data from the SMB segments and where some key opportunities lie for growing your businesses. Then, Andy will be sharing a wealth of insight and knowledge on how he has built a very successful business servicing the SMB market and how that vision continues with the next wave of innovation coming, such as with Windows 7 (including a demo), virtualization, SBS 2008, EBS 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2. In addition, he will share tips and guidance on key learnings he has discovered that you too can put into practice in your businesses starting right away, including ways to cope with the ever changing financial climate we all face today.

Be sure to add this session to your schedule for Monday, July 13th, as I believe you will thoroughly enjoy what Andy has to share, hearing about how he has built his business, and how you can adopt many of these same practices in your businesses to serve the needs of your clients.
