While a lot of the work we all do as Microsoft partners are designed to benefit enterprise organizations, it’s cool to have that same sort of interconnectedness outside of our own organizations and outside of a business context to include the greater community – and the world – at large.
Looking forward to seeing you at WPC in a few weeks and your support with the WPC Giving Initiative
