MVP Summit Wrap Up Thoughts

It’s hard to believe it October already. The last three weeks have been jam packed, starting with PDC 05, then a variety of meetings culminating with the company meeting the following week, then the 2005 MVP Global Summit last week. This was the first MVP Summit to include Architect MVPs so it was pretty stressful. Of course, there were things we could have done better, but all-in-all I was happy with the event. A year ago, we had just awarded our first 14 Architect MVPs. Now we’re 100 strong between our solution and infrastructure Architect MVPs and we had better than half of them in Redmond for the summit. I swear, it will take us the rest of the fiscal year to implement even half of their suggestions.

I’m sure each of the various groups that have MVPs think that their MVPs are the best, so I guess I’m no different in that regard. Our Architect MVPs are an amazing group and I am already looking forward to the next opportunity to get a bunch of them in a room together again.


100? wow, I always thought it was a significantly smaller number... go figure!
