So how do you achieve success?
When I talk with successful partners, there’s one characteristic most, if not all, seem to have in common: they approach new challenges with a growth mindset.
Having a growth mindset means you have a constant desire to improve; you see roadblocks as opportunities; you aren’t afraid to take risks and learn from your failures, recognizing they become the fuel for future achievements. Partners who embrace a growth mindset are often more innovative in how they pursue success—and this bold, innovative philosophy is exactly what we’re looking for in our 2016 Partner of the Year Award winners.
Why apply for the Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards?
Open to applicants now, our 2016 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards program gives our partners a chance to showcase how they’re combining their innovation and expertise with our technologies to build best-in-class solutions.
Here’s even more detail on what’s in it for you:
In our most recent annual Partner of the Year Award Winners survey, both award winners and finalists told us that having Partner of the Year Award recognition helps them create new business connections, provides positive customer opportunities, and has led to increased market recognition.
Partners receive an extensive marketing package when they are selected as a winner. The package includes custom press release templates and marketing assets to promote their company as an award-winning Microsoft partner, along with a personalized executive congratulatory letter.
While attending WPC 2016, Partner of the Year Award winners will be recognized and celebrated by their peers throughout the event. These onsite experiences include recognition during the main stage keynote, executive photo opportunities, and invite-only events to meet and network with top Microsoft executives and subject matter experts in specific business areas. It’s also a great way to strengthen relationships with Microsoft business groups.
Success won’t come to you—you have to be bold and go get it! Nominate your organization for the 2016 Partner of the Year Awards, available now until April 7, 2016 at 11:59pm Pacific Time. Then, join us at the Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) in July in Toronto, Canada to celebrate the winners and all of our partner success stories.
We look forward to reading all of your incredible submissions!
