Man with his hands in the air teaching a group of people during a session

The eXtreme365 conference traditionally we associated with all things related to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement (what was known as Microsoft Dynamics CRM). Today the conference has evolved to cover more than that. It now encompasses sessions across the whole Microsoft Dynamics 365 stack for Partners from consultants, developers, executives, and sales. The sessions are to be lead by Microsoft and industry experts.

As I was glancing at the agenda for eXtreme365 to see what sessions I would be interested in attending it got me thinking that other sales and marketers folks might be interested in those sessions as well. Here are they are…
