If you’re attending the Channel Partners Conference & Expo on Wednesday, March 3, check out some of the sessions at SMB Nation’s 2010 VoIP Workshop, which is colocated with the channel event at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
As part of the colocation agreement, full conference attendees of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo can participate in the SMB Nation education programming at no additional charge. SMB Nation is a publishing and events company targeted at the small and medium business technology consultant and reseller community.
Education runs from 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and covers VoIP, VoIP and more VoIP. Here are some samples:
From (A) to (B): How one IT networking technology consultants became a successful VoIPer! Held 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Islander F, this case study let’s you walk a mile in the shoes of a seasoned SMB technology consultant who successfully integrated VoIP offerings into his long-established data networking consulting/reseller practice. The speaker has a unique story to share and the result is the same: owning the entire SMB stack at the customer site. In this seminar, you’ll also learn four pathways to implementing VoIP at your SMB customer sites – each with its own costs, risks and benefits.
Later in the afternoon, 3:15-4:15 p.m., in Islander F, check out how to be an MSP in SMB VoIP. Leading MSP thought leaders will have a wide-ranging conversation about being a successful MSP in the SMB VoIP space. Is it really all about remote management and monitoring, recurring revenue and purchasing the right tools (or worse – licenses you never use)? Or is it about making the MSP model only an appropriate part of your business operations, investing in marketing your MSP practice and converting traditional clients to the MSP model? There will be plenty of time for questions to be answered.
