Microsoft Australia SBSC Updates

Body:

Recently I was asked to be part of a panel discussion with Microsoft’s new SBSC Program Manager Wendy Smith.  These were a series of discussions held in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in which Microsoft wanted to hear from the SBSC’s to understand what they could do better.  Personally I applaud Microsoft for doing this and I hope that this bodes well for the future as I believe we need far more consistent and clear communications with them so that we can all benefit.  As a result of this discussion, Microsoft committed to present to the community a summary of the issues covered and plans on how they would do this.  Wendy maintains the blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/sbsc_australia 

She has posted a summary of the meeting at http://blogs.msdn.com/sbsc_australia/archive/2007/11/22/small-business-specialist-roundtable-discussions.aspx 

I understand that Wendy will be aiming to use this blog as a key tool for communication back to the community, so make sure you add it to your RSS feeds so that you won’t miss out on anything important.

We’ve Got a Guy.

Body:

More announcements from the SMBNation Keynote. Eric Ligman has announced the "We’ve Got a Guy" campaign starting real soon now. It’s focused around the "We’ve Got a Guy" where often we the SBSC’s have to go and clean up after "the guy". This time however, it spins it a little better and focuses on the skills of the SBSC partner for Microsoft. The website http://www.wevegottaguy.com/ is live now and the promotion to customers starts real soon.
