Presented by Kelly Fink,  the Microsoft Marketing Development Specialist at Ingram Micro and Darren Harbaugh, Partner Community Manager at Microsoft. 

Licensing can be a very confusing topic that raises a lot of questions. 

·         What are the different licensing programs? 

·         What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? 

·         Which one is the right one for my client? 

·         Is each product licensed differently? 

·         How do I know if I’m quoting my customer correctly for licensing? 

·         And, most importantly, how does licensing help me make money?


If you have ever asked one or more of these questions, then we can help.
