Every six months, Chris is flown over to America for the Partner Advisory Council (PAC) meeting. Here, he meets with 20 other PAC members, consisting of company CEO’s of a managed service provider, who are experts of Office 365 globally.
In order to get onto the PAC, one needs to be invited to join the council based on their success and knowledge in the Cloud Computing world. A PAC meeting consists of two full days of intensive seminars focused on the latest information from Microsoft. Every hour, a member of the Corporate Product Division talk about Microsoft’s roadmap and strategy, where they discuss the latest developments and the upcoming Microsoft releases for the upcoming months to a year. Members of the PAC are exposed to the latest and most cutting-edge information from Microsoft and on how they intend to go to market with new variations of products.
The last PAC conference informed individuals on the latest information on Yammer and how it intergrates with Office 365.
