CHANNEL PARTNERS Intelisys (Booth #1414) has joined as a sponsor of the Women in the Channel workshop.
The Women in the Channel workshop was developed this year specifically to spotlight the important work women are doing now in the channel and the opportunities the channel offers women in the future. It is being held Saturday, March 12 from 5-7.30 p.m. The pre-conference event leads up to the opening of the Channel Partners Conference & Expo, March 13-15, at the Aria in Las Vegas.
Intelisys is joining three other industry leaders PAETEC, Windstream and TBI in sponsoring the workshop.
It is no accident that Intelisys jumped in as a sponsor of Women in the Channel. An important part of Intelysis mission statement is to raise the standards of how business telecommunications services are bought and sold.” Maximizing the potential of all the talented professionals in the channel is important to Intelisys.
The workshop was developed by women leaders in the channel business eager to explore ways to focus the channel on collaborative selling to improve long-term performance for clients and customers. In fact, the theme of the workshop is Women in the Channel: Collaborate for Success.”
The event will open with a featured speaker, Kimber Lim, a well-known author and business coach. Lims presentation is titled: Get Your Woman On! Beauty, Grace, Power and Financial Success.”
Get Your Woman On! will be followed by a roundtable of leading women channel executives lead by Channel Partners Editor-in-Chief Khali Henderson.
Panel participants include Nancy Ridge, vice president of Telcombrokers; Donna Wenk, senior vice president of PAETEC; Amy Burke Freeman, president and owner of Global Communications; and Laura Bernstein, president of CRA.
Networking is an important part of the workshop. A goal is to put women in the channel in touch with one another and promote long term mentoring. In fact, the workshop is a product of an informal meeting a group of women have been holding the evening prior to Channel Partners for several years to discuss the business and the opportunity for women in the profession. It is itself an example of collaboration.
The Women in the Channel is a must-be-there part of this years Channel Partners experience.
