UK consultants are currently presenting a series of webcasts on Technet. For details of how to register to listen in go to the 'MCS Talks' blog at; http://blogs.technet.com/mcstalks/default.aspx
The following is taken from the blog:
"The aim of each presentation is to share our real world experience of designing and architecting core Microsoft technologies in an enterprise environment. A number of different MCS consultants will give you a high level discussion of the different architectural and design options available and provide you with a good idea of how to approach the deployment of the technology being discussed. Each presentation will look to provide information and guidance on key architectural inputs including selecting the correct solution for the environment, whether this be consolidation of services or the expansion into a branch environment, scaling of the solution to fit the target environment, server and service placement to meet both technical and systems management requirements, and considerations for network bandwidth and options for low bandwidth locations."
