Hello Partners,
The 2015 Worldwide Partner Conference is just over six weeks away! Our goal at WPC each year is to provide you with the most relevant, engaging experiences, and this year, we’ve redesigned your opportunities to better fit the ways in which you do business.
One of the exciting opportunities we are offering are our General Sessions, delivered by senior Microsoft executives and other industry leaders, and tailored to your customer segment, business focus, product family and partner type.
The General Sessions at WPC outline the key priorities for your business and explore the most important issues facing business leaders today. It’s an opportunity for you to hear senior executive speakers share their vision around business challenges and how we can solve them together to meet the needs of customers.
We have more than15 General Sessions currently in the 2015 WPC Session Catalog (with more to come). Just select General in the Session Type filter on the left side of the catalog and apply other filters to find the most relevant sessions for your business.
To help your search for the right sessions, here are a few questions to consider along with highlights from some of the General Sessions that you can attend this July.
