Recently I was asked to be part of a panel discussion with Microsoft’s new SBSC Program Manager Wendy Smith. These were a series of discussions held in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne in which Microsoft wanted to hear from the SBSC’s to understand what they could do better. Personally I applaud Microsoft for doing this and I hope that this bodes well for the future as I believe we need far more consistent and clear communications with them so that we can all benefit. As a result of this discussion, Microsoft committed to present to the community a summary of the issues covered and plans on how they would do this. Wendy maintains the blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/sbsc_australia
She has posted a summary of the meeting at http://blogs.msdn.com/sbsc_australia/archive/2007/11/22/small-business-specialist-roundtable-discussions.aspx
I understand that Wendy will be aiming to use this blog as a key tool for communication back to the community, so make sure you add it to your RSS feeds so that you won’t miss out on anything important.
