Has anyone found the "find a trainer" selector in the new mindjet website?

In earlier mindjet websites it was easy to find a local certified trainer.
This made a lot of sense for Mindjet, since if their users are familiar with all the applications, solutions and know how to use features, their colleagues want it too.
Meaning they sold a lot more licenses after we gave our trainingsessions

For value added resellers, it is absolutely necessary that they are found, in order to get enough return on their many years of loyal investment.

However.. The find a trainer option is gone (at least i can't find it).
Suddenly there is one (very good, but swedish) trainer mentioned. But there are many more extremely qualified, like us ;-) in Europe.

Nope. Looks like your right and the "Find a Trainer" facility has gone. :-o

I found the older listing (in german) overhere

http://emea.mindjet.com/partner/suche...

Ofourse I am curious how long it takes to get it in place and updated.

As said, trainers like us, take care of a lot of extra licenses purchased (although not always bought through us)

Mindjet's webdeveloper must have been fired. That is the only reason I can think of, why nobody does anything.

Good News: I read on twitter that Jascha Kaykas-Wolff, Mindjet's
Chief Marketing Officer agrees with the need for a - find the trainer - section.

He understands that companies that have offered their employees a good in-house training, leads to double the users (and licenses sold)

So there is hope that the - find a trainer - section will be operational THIS WEEK.

Maybe the webdeveloper could contact us, We can explain to her/him why it is so important for people to find the best training for the products possible.

We can also explain why and give proof how companies double their licenses after an in-house training.

I am really dissappointed by the lack of response form mindjet.

Hi Ary. Our marketing team is still looking into this. As you are aware, it does not appear to be a program that we are offering anymore. I will be sure to send this updated thread to them so that they have the most recent comments. If they decided to re-implement the Find a Trainer section on the website I will be sure to let you know. Thank you for your comments and your patience.

Hello Brittney

If it is a program that Mindjet is not offering anymore,... Why did we not get a communcation about it.

And why does you website mentions differently? see the screenshots?

Do you think that your marketing team is aware of the fact that companies who had good training doubled in licenses year after year?

Ary,

Perhaps you could contact Realize and ask how they got such a prominent position and promotion as a training partner in the first place and whether the program is still active (for them at least).

Hi Ary,

The training partner program is no longer on our website, you are looking at a cached copy which is why the link is broken as well. We have plans to roll out an updated channel program in Sept. and we have mentioned to our new US Channel Director the need for the Certified Trainer section.

Hello Valerie,

I have changed computers to be sure there can be nothing in my cache, but in the european version of the Mindjet site it is still avaialble as shown above.

But actually, this is not my concern.

What we need to know is.... Can we get our listing back?

Hi Ary,

The marketing team is reviewing the request and is looking for the documentation around the program. I can't promise you your listing at this point, but we are listening to all of you.

Hello Brittney.

I am extremely pleased by this.

Now the only thing we need is an option (or a person) to tell that we are certified for MindManager 2012 and Mindjet Connect and Sharepoint as well and expect to be for Mindjet Desktop and Web and On-Premise in the near future.

Do you have suggestions?
