Hi There

We have just released a new virtual partner community site. Think Face Book for Dynamics Partners..

Details are below. Take some time to explore the new tool and post any comments or suggestions. All feedback welcome.

We’ve listened to you and heard that networking with other Microsoft partners is important to creating customer solutions, winning new business, and enabling efficiencies. To help you connect with other partners and grow your success, we’ve just launched a new online networking portal.

It’s really easy to access and participate in this new online network, simply...

· Go to the www.microsoft.com/uk/partner/community

· Select the ‘Explore the Partner Community’ button

· Sign-in using your Windows Live ID (that you use to access other partner programme benefits)

· Join a Network from the list on the left hand side

New Leaders Wanted...

Today a handful of Networks exist; OEM Connect to Unified Communications, Sales and Marketing to Technology Leadership. We’re looking for additional leaders from within the partner community to create new Partner Networks -  industry, product, regional, or issue focused... whatever you think is required. If you have an idea and would like to participate in this programme please request a Network Set-Up application – click here.  

Let us know what you think

It’d be great to hear your feedback  - tell us online via the discussion thread in the On-Site Network. Here’s what Peter Crane, Group Marketing Manager, The Insource Group recently said, “Our Gold Certified Partner status is more than just a badge - it means we understand the benefits in working closely with Microsoft and other partners. The new Microsoft Partner Network allows us to share knowledge and best practice around Microsoft technologies with other partners. We can learn from other partners’ experiences and in turn help others through our own past efforts”. 

I hope you agree with me that this new initiative from our UK team provides great potential. I look forward to seeing you online.
