Microsoft Negotiating and Licensing Workshop
Become a Microsoft Licensing Expert and Negotiate Better Deals with Microsoft
This course gives you the knowledge and tools you need to make smart choices when licensing and purchasing Microsoft products.
Courses are taught by Paul DeGroot, one of the world's leading Microsoft licensing experts, and author of the best-selling Microsoft Licensing Concepts.

In concert with Software Licensing Advisors, he has negotiated hundreds of millions of dollars in savings for customers. You'll get a solid introduction to Microsoft licensing and tips that will help you get maximum value from your Microsoft investment at the lowest cost.
Other staff include ex-Microsoft personnel who add essential insider information and tips.
