Immersive Sessions

Facilitated, hands-on experiences that allow you to get deep insight and knowledge of specific solutions, products, or technologies. Seating is limited in these sessions to provide a more intimate discussion.

There are two immersive sessions that I wanted to highlight as well—the Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) and the Value Discovery Workshop (VDW). The CIE program has been around for many years and one that we continue to invest in. I encourage partners to consider CIE with your customers to show them what’s possible with Microsoft 365 in an interactive virtual environment and how it can address their business needs. Additionally, the VDW session walks through how to prepare and conduct a VDW with your customers, helping you with business value conversations. Each will have several sessions which will run throughout the conference so please check the schedule.

CIE01i – Customer Immersion Experience (CIE) training: Show what’s possible with Microsoft 365

VDW01i – Value Discovery Workshop (VDW) training: Drive business value with Microsoft 365
