QBS Share Event - February 2014

Communication is key. At QBS we want to make sure that we have the best informed Dynamics partners in the world. In addition to online channels such as the website, the QBS Portal, social media, blog and newsletter, we also believe that it is important to have a live forum on a regular basis to not only inform, but to also share ideas and new thinking with support from Microsoft for our existing and future partners.

We do this through regular QBShare sessions.
