New Ways To Connect, Learn, and Grow

What if you could interact with other professionals face-to-face while you participate in a webinar?

But, what if the location of the venue made it possible for you to travel a few miles from your home, park your car in a safe, secure area, and enjoy the familiarity that your local community offers?

With the help of technology and Microsoft, you can attend online or in-person. Enjoy networking and learning with professionals in your community. Participate in a webinar streamed Live to a Microsoft Theatre near you!
