  • Blog Post: Doherty Associates Wins Big

    I’m really pleased to hear that Doherty Associates won IT Support Company of the Year Award last night at the Microscope Aces Awards. Richly deserved for one of the best Microsoft partners I have had the pleasure to work with over the last 5 years. If you’re in West London and need IT support services...
  • Blog Post: Nokia Chooses Microsoft Online

    Stephen Elop mentioned this very quickly in his presentation at Worldwide Partner Conference today – it’s a customer win for Microsoft Online I have known about for a while but been sworn to secrecy so was surprised it slipped out. I’m a little surprised some of my favourite commentators hadn’t picked...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Partners Hunger is Addressed

      Last week ChannelWeb noted Partners Hungry for Details on Microsoft's SaaS Plans and their hunger has hopefully been abated this morning at the WorldWide Partner Conference. Last year saw Steve Ballmer and other execs set the stage for the services era. I know many partners left last year feeling...
  • Blog Post: Houston We Have Lift Off

    Tomorrow morning I head to Houston for the Microsoft WorldWide Partner Conference .

  • Blog Post: How Much Would You Pay to Play At Wembley Stadium?

    The first Microsoft Charity Cup took place at Wembley Stadium last November and raised over £59k for the Wooden Spoon charity.

  • Blog Post: Stop Press - Scottish bloggers

    I spent an enjoyable morning today in Edinburgh with a group of our Gold Partners in Scotland. Held at the splendid Scotsman Hotel (ex-home to the paper of the same name) it was expertly coordinated by our team north of the border. For me t was great to see a number of familiar faces - Robert and Scott...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Products Roadmap for FY08 and beyond

    Long posted on this a while back following the Financial Analyst Meeting and I thought it was worth coming back to for a few reasons: Getting hold of anything close to a Microsoft Product roadmap has been difficult for the last number of years. I could speculate as to why and though this isn't a roadmap...
  • Blog Post: Get The Microsoft Web Experience Stack DVD

    Decided it was time to blog about this - I've not blogged much the last few days and this is the reason.

  • Blog Post: SharePoint certifications

    UK folks only for this one: If you know ANYTHING about SharePoint you should read this. It has to be the most in demand product at the moment from customers and partners and skills are scarce. You can make yourself more marketable by getting certifications then :) Can you take the heat of 12+ hours a...

  • Blog Post: I Spat Out My Cornflakes

    Despite being in the US, I knew CRN's Guide To Profitability we recently published with them hit doormats last week. A few partners from the UK emailed me to say they nearly spat out their cornflakes upon seeing my photo in there. Note to self: must get new press photos. You can get the full report...
  • Blog Post: cScape interviews the Geek In Disguise

    A couple of weeks back I caught up with Richard Sedley from cScape for breakfast. Following a few muffins and coffee Richard brought out his recorded and we did a short interview covering Microsoft, blogging, Blue Monster and more. Tune in for just under 20 mins of rambling from me - there are actually...
  • Blog Post: Steve Ballmer on Software + Services

  • Blog Post: My WPC session - all the resources

    As promised earlier, my slides from my WPC session today.

    Wow, you do a short Partner-TV video and the world goes mad!! The guys at Skinkers are no doubt excited about the coverage being generated around LiveStation over the last 24 hours but some folks like ArsTechnica and Ryan Stewart at ZDNet got the wrong end of the stick whereas Michael Arrington at Techcrunch...

    Well, the Partner Bot does. If you're not using this cool Turing-esque innovation, just add PartnerBot@hotmail.com to your Messenger contacts and then ask him some questions. Ross has been doing a full interrogation and found the little gem you see above plus some other Easter Eggs . How many more are...

    I've been waiting to announce this for soooo long as the guys here in Reading have been working hard to get this ready and I'm delighted we got this out before WorldWide Partner Conference.

    I was over at Skinkers this morning with Matteo Berlucchi shooting a video for Partner-TV.
