WPC 2014 Recap & Special Offer for Microsoft Partners

Melissa Bathum

Thanks for another great year at WPC 2014

That’s a wrap! Four jam-packed days, some 14k attendees from all over the world, and two thunderous downpours filled our week in Washington DC – exactly what we needed to create the “perfect storm” (get it? get it?) of in-depth content of what the future holds for training and certification, fun interactive opportunities for networking, and the targeted conversations that must be had for closing business and building new relationships.

Presentation Slides
If you are a Learning Partner and didn’t get the chance to attend WPC in person this year – you can still review everything we said during our sessions with direct access to the slide presentations on Campaign Factory HERE.

For reference, we hosted three (3) total sessions: an all-inclusive keynote presentation where we introduced our new sole Exam Delivery Provider Pearson VUE onto the stage with us (further details on that announcement can be found here); a second session outlining the futures of our learning products; and a third session offering program and marketing offers and options for partners to take advantage of.

    Dear Melissa,

    Is there a way for MCTs to review those presentations? Ideally to see a recording of them? I believe it is also important for trainers and half of us are not working for CPLS.

    Thanks in advance

    @Marc - Melissa had asked Morgan to make the presentations available on MCT Central. Hope you got them.
