Hi ,

I was reflecting this week on how my team at Microsoft Canada could raise our game to better support you and I thought about how we are all connected.
From technology, building solutions, solving problems and having a passion for learning, we as technical professionals, all have a lot in common. We have some of the same challenges at work, need to grow the right skills, solve immediate problems and a have a desire to build our career. But, we don’t always have the time to access the right information or individually have the opportunity to gain the experiences we need. If we are all connected then how can we help support each other, especially in these trying times?

Our team success is measured by how we support you with our programs, products and resources. As a matter of fact you might be surprised in how we measure success. If you’ve ever received a survey that asks how satisfied you are with Microsoft…..that is our measure. Earning your trust and supporting you in a manner so you feel empowered to answer “Very Satisfied” is our team’s goal. Yet to actually make an impact we know that we need to work together. As such in an effort to support connections across Canada, in the coming few weeks we are launching the Beta version of TechDays Online. Not only will it provide you the ability to learn more about current and emerging technologies it will enable connections to technology experts, your peers and speakers while providing continued learning tools to support your skills development and career growth.

I’m excited about this solution as it comes from your feedback and while I’m sure we won’t get it 100% right at the start with your help we will evolve the solution to better support you! The beta site is going to be launched at the end of March and this is a heads up as in a few weeks we’ll be sending out an update on how you can get involved and be a site BETA tester.

So please stay tuned and get connected! As always, any feedback or comments are always welcome.
