6 WPC Sessions for Better Business

To help RCP readers get ready for the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, we ran a special Marching Orders feature with top tips for getting the most out of the conference. The authors of the article were five of the Microsoft channel's top consultants for improving your partner business.

That group, the Alliance for Channel Success, which includes RCP columnists Ken Thoreson and Howard Cohen, will participate in several sessions at WPC next week in Toronto. In addition to the interesting Microsoft sessions that we've already pointed out from a product and business direction standpoint, the Alliance sessions below will also be good sessions to consider for your personal planner:
