Per Werngren, IAMCP Worldwide President, says:

The IAMCP are proud to announce that, together with Microsoft Corp, we are launching an exciting project that is about our seasoned members mentoring our lesser experienced members.

Mentors and Mentees will build strong relationships that will, in many cases, result in knowledge sharing both ways, business partnerships and potentially also investments. This brand new program taps into some of the key pillars of IAMCP focus – P2P, Community, Education and Growth.
Goals for the IAMCP Mentorship Program are:
Help Mentees to get to Gold in a Cloud Competency.
