      • What online properties or offline trade communications do you consult today to help direct your business strategy by allowing you to stay connected with industry trends and market opportunities?
      • In what ways would you recommend we change our communication strategy to more clearly and efficiently improve our dialog with you.  Online/Offline, email/direct mail, web, blogs, social communities, newsletters are all examples of how we try to reach out to you today.  Which ways are better, which do you ignore, how should we change?
      • How can we help you better navigate Microsoft’s partner relationship?
      • We often hear partner networking is an area of considerable interest to our partners, i.e. the ability to identify partners in your own backyard and learn of their capabilities in an effort to partner with them on future opportunities where your skill sets complement each other.  Would you agree?
