Bill Clinton to Keynote at WPC

Former president Bill Clinton will be making a keynote address at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference in Washington, DC., Microsoft announced yesterday.

Clinton, who formed and runs the William J. Clinton Foundation, "with the mission to strengthen the capacity of people in the United States and throughout the world to meet the challenges of global interdependence," will be among several heavy hitters scheduled to speak at WPC.

Among others on the revamped agenda scheduled to speak include Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and group presidents Kevin Turner, Stephen Elop and Bob Muglia.

Of course, headlining WPC will be Microsoft's channel chief, Allison Watson, corporate vice president of the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Group, who will spell out the implications of Microsoft's "all-in" cloud emphasis and what that means to partners.

The Clinton keynote, called "Embracing our Common Humanity," is slated for Wednesday July 14th. The other humanitarian named Bill, Bill Gates, Microsoft's founder and chairman-turned-humanitarian, is not scheduled to appear at WPC.
