What is Microsoft Partner MS101? Based on our experience with our global enterprise partners and from your feedback, we have developed a “Partner Version” of our Microsoft Worldwide Field New Hire Orientation Training course, called MS101.
Our primary objective for Microsoft PARTNER MS101 is to enable and provide a jumpstart on your understanding of Microsoft, covering our strategies, products, customer campaigns and field organization for our key enterprise partner alliance, marketing and sales contacts to decrease the time-to-opportunities & engagement and to drive wins and revenue for our firms!!!
We are in our 11th year of Microsoft PARTNER MS101 and we have had very positive feedback from partner attendees for each offering we have had! We have taken the comments and suggestions from the previous courses and incorporated them into this version and have updated the content to reflect Microsoft’s strategy and plans for our Fiscal Year 2010 (July 2009 – June 2010).
Comments from Partners Who Attended Previous Microsoft Partner MS101 Conferences:

Microsoft has reserved a block of rooms at the NH Barbizon Palace Hotel in Amsterdam at a discounted rate of €145, 00 per night (single occupancy), approximately USD $215. Rooms have been blocked for the nights of 08-12 March, 2010. All guests are charged a “portage fee” of $4, so you do not need to tip to have your luggage moved unless you want to give in addition to the $4. If you are requesting a room on additional nights, we will do what we can to accommodate you. Reservation requests must be made by 16:00 (PDT) on Thursday, 4 March, 2010. If you need to cancel a hotel reservation you have made, you must contact us at (email@example.com) 72 business hours prior to your hotel arrival date. If you do not cancel your reservation, you will be charged for your first night stay.
Full refunds (less $50.00 (USD) processing fee per registrant) will be granted to cancellations received via email to firstname.lastname@example.org up until 17:00 (US-PDT) 10 days prior to Day 1 of this event (8 March 2010). Refunds will not be given to registrants who do not cancel or who cancel within 9 days of Day 1 of this event. However, substitutions are allowed. There are set costs based on our attendee estimates a few weeks in advance so we are forced to incur these charges for people that cancel after this cancellation date.
