MVPs took to Microsoft stores this holiday season to share their knowledge and spread a little technology cheer. A total of 43 MVPs volunteered their time and energy to answer questions and give presentations on new Microsoft technologies and techniques. MVPs spoke directly with Microsoft customers at 19 different Microsoft stores during an impressive 78 expert sessions.
With the highly anticipated releases of Windows 8 and the Surface, Microsoft stores were quickly packed with shoppers eager to get their hands on the latest products and learn about new features.
“I was surprised at the capabilities of Microsoft PowerPoint and the ability to create custom graphics. Sandy did a great job,” commented one session goer after PowerPoint MVP Sandy Johnson’s presentation.
MVPs covered new technologies and features like Windows Phone 8, Xbox, SkyDrive and, of course Windows 8. During one MVP presentation, consumers were able to sit down immediately after purchasing a Surface and learn about Windows 8 and the features of their new tablet.
MVPs had access to various technologies inside the Microsoft stores to help enhance the experience of attendees. This allowed cutomers to get a hands-on learning session and ask questions about their new purchases.
