P2P Prometheus Award 2018 starts

Dear IAMCP members,

Each year the IAMCP provides an opportunity for Partners to recognize the Microsoft staff that work with them through the IAMCP Prometheus Awards. This is an important way to acknowledge and celebrate the people that make a real impact on Partner businesses. The awards recognize those who have provided an outstanding level of service to the Partner and will have shown exceptional commitment in supporting the Partners that they work with.

The IAMCP Prometheus Awards are presented annually to provide high-profile recognition of the top 5 representative regions. One award will be given in each of these 5 geographical areas.

Participating Regions 2018:
