The RDs (Microsoft Regional Directors) are one of the most amazing groups of people I deal with and I'm honoured and humbled to be a member of the group. There is rare talent amongst the group. Every day, I find myself amazed by both the breadth and depth of knowledge. I also love the off-the-wall humour.
Our lead Kevin Schuler does a great job of looking after our interests and of herding the cats. I was really pleased to receive a global impact award from Kevin today, covering 2008. It looks excellent and I'm pleased to see that it features "The Region". If you haven't looked into "The Region", I'd suggest doing so. I don't have time to read all the blogs by all the Regional Directors. I wish I could read them all but "The Region" is the next best thing. It's a moderated feed of the highest quality posts made by Regional Directors. You'll find the main feed here: http://www.theregion.com/ShowRSS.aspx.
