Microsoft has handpicked 50 IT Professionals from across the United States. These lucky individuals will get to sit down with Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft and his crew to talk about Microsoft. I was lucky enough to be chosen for this opportunity.
Here is what the invitation said:
Microsoft would like to cordially invite you to attend an exclusive, one-day event on Wednesday, April 18th 2007, with Steve Ballmer, Chief Executive Officer, and other Microsoft executives at the Microsoft Corporate Headquarters in Redmond, Washington.
You have been identified as one of the influential leaders in the IT Professional community, enabling IT Professionals to reach their full potential every day. And we want to hear from you!
Join us at this all day event where you will have the opportunity to engage with other community leaders, and provide your input to Microsoft senior executives through intimate panel discussions around key industry trends such as:
• Next generation of the Web and its implications on IT Professionals; both as consumers and in the enterprise
• Data Center trends such as Virtualization and Managed Services
• Evolution of the IT Professional community with new online and offline capabilities
What it really means is I will get the opportunity to sign a super Non-Disclosure Agreement and provide feedback to Microsoft about future products and concepts. I will report back next month, and yes I am counting down the days…
