The email message invites those partners to “work on the building blocks of your business” with Sage by developing a 12-18 month plan which outlines how you will grow your business with Sage.
The message seems to hint that in the coming 12 to 18 months partners should make definite plans to increase their business if they want any investment from Sage.
At least one partner – who did attended Summit – received the following email from Sage Central Region Channel Development and Strategy Executive Rick Burtt.
Sage Will Invest in partners that invest in Sage.

Burtt, Rick [Rick.Burtt@sage.com]
Following an invigorating Sage Summit 2012, I wanted to share the energy and excitement about the many opportunities for Sage Business Partners. I know you were unable to attend this year but Sage North America’s CEO Pascal Houillon and Chief Technology Officer Himanshu Palsule shared a clear vision for our road ahead. Please check out the Sage Summit Keynote, We have thoughtfully made tough decisions, all of which are designed to help us reach our primary objective: To meet the current and future needs of customers. We will do this with innovation, agility and a commitment to help them succeed.
Sage will invest in partners that invest in Sage. I invite you to do just that, and proactively plan for your success.
Planning for success is sometimes as simple as working on the building blocks of your business: marketing, sales, services and support. Not all of the “blocks” need work, but it is important evaluate each based on current business conditions. Together, I would like to develop your strategy to take advantage of Sage’s strategy.
The outcome will be a 12-18 month plan which outlines how you will grow your business with Sage.
Please let me know if you are interested in joining us as we plan for new customer sales growth in the coming year. If you are interested, let me know when we can schedule a planning session to begin this process.
