Microsoft Partner Forums Scheduled for Tuesday

Senior Microsoft partner executives will give updates on the Microsoft Partner Network and take questions from partners Tuesday in a pair of webcasts.

The Microsoft Partner Network Interactive Leadership Forum will be held as LiveMeetings at 10 a.m. EST and again at 9 p.m. EST. The presenters will cover the same topics at each session, but both will be live to accommodate questions from partners in various time zones around the world.

Eric Ligman, Microsoft director of partner experience, will moderate the session. Other speakers include Jon Roskill, corporate vice president, Worldwide Partner Group; Julie Bennani, general manager, Microsoft Partner Network; Ross Brown, vice president, Worldwide Partner Sales; and Karl Noakes, general manager, Microsoft Partner Strategy & Programs.

According to the event description, the executives will be discussing "key topics of interest, questions, concerns, misconceptions and more that we have heard from partners around the world regarding the Microsoft Partner Network to help address and answer these for you, the Microsoft partners. This session will also include an open forum Q&A session where you will be able to ask questions of the leadership team regarding the Microsoft Partner Network."

In March, Microsoft held a similar event, which turned into a wide-ranging discussion generating headlines about partner roadmaps, the ISV competency, incentive programs, branding campaigns and Pinpoint momentum.

An Eric Ligman blog post with information about the sessions and registration details is available here.
