Who are the MVP’s?
Microsoft MVPs are technology experts who share their knowledge with the community. They are always at the “bleeding edge” of technology and have an unstoppable desire to discover new, exciting technologies. They are experts in Microsoft products and services and can combine different platforms, products, and solutions to solve real-world problems. Over 4,000 MVPs are community leaders and technical experts in over 90 countries. They are driven by their passion for community spirit and a thirst for knowledge. MVPs are not only skilled in technical areas, but they also have the ability to help others. That’s what makes them unique.
What is the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Award Award?
The Microsoft MVP Award has been our way to say “Thanks!” for outstanding community leaders for more than 20 years. MVPs’ contributions to the community are extraordinary. These contributions include speaking engagements, social media posts, writing books, and helping others in online communities. MVPs have access to Microsoft products early, direct communication channels to our product teams, and invitations to the Global MVP Summit, which is an exclusive annual event held at our global headquarters in Redmond.
They have a close relationship with local Microsoft teams in their region, who are there for MVPs to support and empower them to address local needs and opportunities. Other benefits include an executive appreciation letter, a Visual Studio technical subscription, and an Office 365 subscription.
