Microsoft has announced the five people who have made it through the Office 2010 Road Warriors selection process and accepted a four-month contract.
Three weeks ago, Microsoft New Zealand set out to find five Office 2010 Road Warriors in an attempt to deliver Microsoft Office 2010 to more New Zealand businesses.
Jared Pedersen, SMB Sales and Marketing Manager for Microsoft New Zealand said that over 90 applications from around the world were received. “It was a tough job whittling the applicants down to the top five, but we’re extremely pleased with the high calibre of talent the Road Warrior programme has attracted.”
The five winners are Catherine Andrews, Paul Conroy, Ally Chapman, Andrea Turner and Matt Grant. They will now each visit 200 medium-sized businesses around the country. After four months the top performing person will receive, among other things, a $10,000 bonus.
Pedersen added, “We want to provide a personalised way for customers to learn about Office 2010, and have a little fun along the way. We’re excited about the new version of Office, and want that energy to carry through to our customers as they meet the Warriors.”
