Microsoft Inspire Recap 2020

We met with IAMCP chapter president Danny Brown, to chat about Microsoft Inspire. Inspire is Microsoft’s worldwide partner conference.

Although this year looked very different than years past, Microsoft rolled out the red carpet for attendees through live virtual sessions with Q&A and free passes to educational sessions featuring industry experts.
