Hello Partners!
 
Our team is hard at work this year rolling out a new approach to session content at WPC 2015, with new tracks designed with your business in mind and structured to follow Microsoft’s vision of a mobile-first, cloud-first world.
 
You will find your best path illuminated to profitability and opportunity by participating in sessions from four different tracks: Innovate, Engage, Transform and Leadership.
 
Innovate: How your Microsoft partnership can play a part in your company’s success today and in its vision for the future.
 
Engage: How to attract and land the right customers with the right solutions while ensuring success through deployment, service and support in order to drive consumption.
 
Transform: How to evaluate your business opportunities and determine the right path for continuous growth and improvement.
 
Leadership: How to lead a healthy and profitable organization, with strategies and best practices from renowned speakers on business and leadership topics.
 
Based on your feedback from last year, we’ve created fewer, more targeted sessions. But, more importantly, we’re working to ensure that the sessions go deeper with perspectives on how to execute with the right approach. We’ve also updated our session tools with more filtering capabilities so you can quickly and easily find the right sessions that will help you identify new opportunities and drive profitability.
 
We recently announced that Satya Nadella and Kevin Turner will be presenting during the Vision Keynotes. We’re excited to welcome them and other Microsoft leaders to WPC to help demonstrate why betting on Microsoft is the best business decision you can make – and how Microsoft innovation clearly leads to business growth.
 
Furthermore, back by popular demand, our Leadership track will once again include sessions from top industry leaders who will share insights across various leadership, sales and marketing topics – what leadership means to your team, how to build partner relationships, compensating your sales team, productive selling, digital marketing, storytelling in your marketing content – and much more.
 
We’ll also bring you inspirational speakers such as Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson, who recently became the first rock climbers to ever successfully complete the 3,000 foot free climb of the El Capitan Dawn Wall in Yosemite National Park. Their story of great achievement showcases the power of partnership, and we’re excited to bring them to you at WPC.

In addition, the session catalog will open in a few weeks, and you’ll begin seeing the development of sessions like this, along with valuable content from all areas of Microsoft targeted to your business, such as content specific to ISV partners, Dynamics partners, hosting partners, SMB Distributors and Resellers. You’ll hear from our Cloud and Engineering team, the Enterprise Partner Group, Microsoft Operations, Global Partner Services and Microsoft IT. You’ll learn how to be profitable with Office 365 and CRM Online. And, of course, you’ll hear from the Windows team on all the exciting opportunities ahead with Windows 10.
 
Once the session catalog opens, we will continually add sessions, so be sure to check frequently for weekly additions.
 
At the core of our team’s work for WPC 2015 is the idea of providing opportunities for you to learn how Microsoft solutions can propel your business to the next level. Engage early and continue the conversation in WPC Connect, where you can meet thought-leaders, learn new perspectives, and establish new contacts, all in one place!
