We want to make sure all of you are comfortable with this transition, so there are some dedicated resources at WPC to help you navigate. The two opportunities that provide the most guidance our our sessions and one-on-one scheduled discussion:

One-on-One Meetings

These are quick and specific to your org! If you don’t have a Partner Account Manager to initiate a meeting with you, just walk up to the Regional Service Center Booth & Lounge at WPC to schedule your discussion with an RSC agent. You can ask questions like: What assets am I missing? What exams do I need to take? What is the date by which I need to be compliant before I lose my benefits? You’ll leave with a printed/emailed custom action plan based on the competency requirements and benefits for your area of focus and program tier.

Microsoft Partner Network “Build Your Own Business” Kiosk in the US Lounge
