John J. Gallagher, managing partner of Common Sense Technologies LLC, a telecom consultancy, won $1,000 cash and three nights lodging at the Courtyard Marriott in Secaucus, N.J., during the Channel Partners Conference & Expo. Gallagher was selected at random from among qualified channel partners who registered before Aug. 24.
Gallagher says this was an incredible surprise. The last thing I remember winning was a transistor radio when I was a paperboy back in the 60s.
Gallagher, who has only missed one Channel Partners show in nine years, says the show is the ultimate venue for bringing together product and service providers, agent programs, master agents, support personnel and colleagues from around the country to rub elbows and exchange ideas and experiences while evaluating emerging technologies and new offerings for our customers.
Id like to tip my hat to Virgo Publishing, and the visionaries who trailblazed the path we are on today, Gallagher says. Folks [who] early on embraced the idea of exchanging ideas and experiences and working together to leverage our strengths in this changing and challenging space called telecommunications to consistently deliver quality solutions to our customers.
In addition to the Early Bird prize, PHONE+ and Channel Partners Conference & Expo will be giving away a $1,000 Marriott gift card, a $1,500 Home Depot gift card, and a grand prize of a $2,500 American Express gift card. The grand prize promotion will be open to paid registrants who complete the official Show Passport, which will be distributed on site. Winners for the Marriott and Home Depot cards will be chosen on site at random from qualified attendees. Winners must be present to win.
