Are you registered for the second annual Small Business Symposium taking place in Denver at Worldwide Partner Conference yet? Once again, it’s FREE for Microsoft Small Business Specialists!

SB SymposiumLast year for the inaugural Microsoft Small Business Symposium in Boston, we had over 450 partners, press, and Microsoft staff attend, and the feedback we received was great!  If you were not able to attend last year’s Symposium, I posted where you can view recordings of some of the sessions online in this Blog post.


Now it’s time to register for the second annual Microsoft Small Business Symposium.  The Symposium is a great opportunity to network with your peers and some folks from Microsoft at this full-day event as you:


  • Hear directly from Michael Risse, Vice President of Small and Medium Business, about Microsoft’s vision and roadmap in the small business marketplace.

  • Learn from well-known industry leaders how to manage your time, increase business value, and reduce financial barriers to continued growth.

  • Attend Business Growth breakout sessions presented by your partner peers and take away successful best practices that you can put to work for your business.

  • Find out about upcoming Microsoft technology and how to use current Microsoft solutions to boost business success for you and your customers.

  • Maybe even attend a session on using MS licensing to grow your services dollars

Conveniently held just one day before the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, you will be able to spend a full day on Small Business related information and then join us for the rest of Worldwide Partner Conference.  By the way, did I mention that the Microsoft Small Business Symposium is FREE for all Microsoft Small Business Specialists?!  From what I hear, the hotels are booking up fast, so be sure to register soon and I look forward to seeing you there.


Thank you and have a wonderful day,
