Hi Partners, 

This Friday, June 21, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM PT, will mark the last Monthly Partner Call (MPC) of Microsoft's 2013 fiscal year--so you should definitely be on this call. We will be starting back up the MPC on August, 16, in FY14 (no call in July). On this upcoming June Partner Call we will have Microsoft Community Connections lead and Cloud Manager, Justin Slagle, reporting on West Region updates, as well as Northwest lead PTM, Robyn Schutz, speaking about remaining partner resources this year to help you close deals!

One other MAJOR thing to keep in mind for these next two days is that guest speaker Mark Stuyt from PartnerWorks will be joining us on Friday. This is great because Mark Stuyt is a sales expert that will be offering his insights into why so many of today's SMB sales strategies and techniques are no longer effective. In partnership with Microsoft, Mark has created a set of tools and resources that have been proven to yield better sales results. We have actually scheduled an Office Hours session where Mark will explain how to incorporate this new approach into your existing opportunities to accelerate and close more deals. You can sign up for that June 26 webcast here.

Here are login instructions for this Friday's partner call (please record these!):

We are looking forward to having you join us!
