Among the firsts for this meeting was use of LIVE meetings & conferencing using which the members in Pune and Nagpur were able to take part in the meeting virtually . A Total of 5 members took part virtually and 8 members physically giving a total of 13 members for the meeting.

We had Mr Rakesh Kharwal , Product Manager , Microsoft Windows Essential Server Solutions , do a great presentation on Essential Business Server . He came in from New Delhi especially for the meeting ! Thanks to the presentation , the members present for the meeting were able to understand the exciting Technology one month in advance before the official Worldwide  launch .  That’s great value for you.

After the presentation on Essential Business Server , yours truly did a presentation on IAMCP and the value that IAMCP brings for the members . This was followed by a exciting concept of Speed Dating where the Partners HAD to do Networking with 3 different partners for 5 minutes each. This was extremely well appreciated by all the Partners . It was also announced  that if any members were to do a deal subsequent to the Speed Dating, IAMCP will fund them for Pizza & Beer ! At least 4 Partners expressed a view that they would most likely collaborate in weeks to come.

After this came Coffee & Networking . That the Partners saw value in the meeting was borne out by the fact that during Coffee & Networking , 2 non partners immediately signed up as IAMCP members !
