No longer an MVP

I will no longer be an MVP as of February 1, 2009.

Microsoft employees are not entitled for the Most Valuable Professional (MVP)Award, and so ends my exciting tenure with this Award. God willing, I will be joining Microsoft Gulf as a Partner Technology Specialist on February 15 and I will be based in Muscat, Oman.

My new role

As Partner Technology Specialist, my primary responsibility at Microsoft will be to engage with Microsoft partners on strategic customer opportunities, and to enable and support partner success in the technical presales process.

Working@Microsoft has always been my dream. Moreover, the PTS is a very exciting role, and I believe I can make more efficient use of my full potential and skill set compared to my current role (and the ‘pasture’ is pretty green, too! 😉 )

What is going to happen to this blog?

This blog will remain as it is, and I will continue to post my experiences, rant, and bizzare oddities that are sure to come my way – the likes of which you are accustomed to seeing on this blog. Starting February 1, the MVP logo will be removed from this blog and I will no longer use the MVP title.

It goes without saying that the disclaimer at the bottom of this page still holds good at all times, and that the views presented on this blog are my own and not those of Microsoft.

My interaction and support for the online and offline IT communities and fellow MVPs will not end, God willing.

I look forward to working with this team of dynamic individuals that empower people and businesses around the world to realize their fullest potential. Your potential, Our passion!

I wish to take this opportunity to thank the readers of my blog for their constant support, criticism and encouragement.
