Last week during our PTS-TV filming of Steve Marsh I was taking a few photos as our team photographer Jo is away in Portgual. As I reviewed them today, this one made me laugh and must deserve a caption. Best one wins something…I don’t know what yet but something. How’s that for a competition!
You’ll see Steve soon talking about Office 2007, Sales Academies but unfortunately not about the day the PTS team met Keira.
You may (or may not) be familiar with the hard copy Partner Update that comes out on a quarterly basis. The last version is available online with a peice by me on “Selling the Stack” amongst other things.
