Remember when I last posted about our Learning Partner sessions, I had included a caveat that things may change? Well, things have changed. The WPC Event Team has worked through their sessions and timing, and moved some of the major keynotes around. This, in turn, has affected our sessions – both how we will be delivering the content, and when they will be occurring. Yep, things are always moving when it comes to events… Welcome to my world!!

Here’s how things are laid out now – we’ve got three (3) total sessions designed specifically for our Learning Partners and those associated with them – MCTs, MCPs, etc. So if you fit into one of these audiences, these are for you. You’ll notice that one of our sessions is scheduled for Monday, along with our Learning Partner Reception later that evening – RSVP information below – and the other two sessions will be hosted Tuesday afternoon. This is to accommodate the other sessions we think you’ll be interested in attending – and we certainly encourage you to attend any session that may be beneficial to your business, even if it’s not one of ours.

Join your peers and the folks from the Microsoft Learning Experiences team at the annual Learning Partner Reception, held Monday this year, July 14 at 8:00pm at the Daughters of the American Revolution building in Washington DC.

This year, Microsoft has joined with New Horizons, Arvato, and Pearson VUE as our WPC 2014 event and party sponsors, to bring you the opportunity to informally kick off the week of WPC sessions and festivities. Come enjoy a night of networking with fellow partners about the learning industry and what’s to come, chat with Microsoft folks about the newest changes and announcements, or simply enjoy an evening of good food, conversation and company. All Learning Partners and their guests are invited.
