Manchester SBS Group (Kick Off Meeting) - 27th March 2008 - be there to see how it all starts again - with Chris Parkes, Ceri Thomas and me

Ceri Thomas is planning a new group in Manchester and Chris Parkes will be there to host things with him for the 1st meeting.  I will also be there slightly later in the evening. Below is the mail sent out by Danny Ovens to SBSC members in the area, but all are welcome.

Dear Partner

New: Manchester SBS Groups (Kick Off Meeting)

What is the purpose of the SBS User Group....?

SBS User Groups are partner meetings, run by partner, for partners.  They are an independent forum that enable partners to meet one another, share best practice, learn how to better engage with IT Vendors and also hear directly from Microsoft about our products and strategies.

· Partner to partner networking – how can collaborating, learning what successes others have had, sharing problems and concerns or working as a group help your business

· Connect with Vendors – The group can invite Microsoft and others to attend and present to your agenda...be heard!

· Plugged in to Manchester Northwest activities – We’re increasing our engagement with partners in the Northwest through events and communities and we’ll keep the forum updated with relevant news

· Ability to shape the agenda of the User group in future – What works for you...? Influence the agenda to reflect your needs.

The first meeting is being held in Manchester on the 27th March and if you’d like to register your attendance please do so through the voting buttons above.
