Microsoft Partner Business Briefings – October/ November 2012

I had the privilege of being able to attend the Microsoft Partner Business Briefing in November of this year, and I felt that it would be good to share the content that we were shown during the day for those of you who were unable to attend or/ do not have access to such events. Below are links to the content which was presented.

The next Microsoft Partner Briefing will be in April but dates are TBC so watch out for announcements via @mspartnersuk on Twitter, the MPN UK LinkedIn Group and RSS.
