Build a cloud ready business at our partner workshops in November and December

Sharon Lee - US Partner Team Lead for Cloud Ready

Since I published my blog post highlighting how three partners made their businesses cloud ready a few weeks ago, many more partners have completed the Cloud Ready assessment and are eager to transform their own businesses to capitalize on the Microsoft Cloud.

Demonstrating that you are cloud ready includes earning one of the Microsoft Partner Network cloud competencies. To help you accomplish your cloud business goals, the Microsoft US Partner Team is hosting two half-day workshops before the end of 2016. We'll provide you with step-by-step operational guidance so you can achieve your first cloud sale and earn a silver or gold cloud competency.

Each Cloud Ready workshop is designed to help partners build and sustain a profitable, cloud-oriented partner business. You'll learn how to identify the right cloud solutions and partnerships, and how to create compelling incentives to draw in qualified customers. These workshops are intended for partners that have a Microsoft competency that is not one of the five cloud competencies, and that will commit to earning a cloud competency in 100 days. Expect a half-day packed with activities and interactions with partners and experts from the US Partner Community, and bring your completed Cloud Ready assessment with you.

Our investment in your success continues after you've completed the workshop. All workshop participants will receive cloud coaching and an action plan to help you achieve a cloud competency in 100 days.

Space is limited in these events - register today to secure your spot.
