What a start to Channel Partners Evolution!
In what was without question the best preconference event we’ve ever hosted, sales and marketing expert Robin Robins challenged partners to make their businesses better, offering up the four foundational pillars of all great IT service marketing plans. She spent most of Monday afternoon on stage delivering important information that partners of all types can take home and apply to their businesses. It was sponsored by Dell Expert Network.
But we were just getting started.
The Robin Robins Workshop was followed by the traditional Alliance of Channel Women ACWConnect Live networking event and program, which featured keynote speaker Risha Grant. Grant told those in attendance how we can all embrace diversity in the workplace to change our companies, communities, country and world for the better.
The evening wrapped up with our First-Time Attendee Reception, sponsored by Verizon. Channel Partners newbies and invited guests packed the Dignitary at the Marriott Marquis, the host hotel, for networking and to meet other Evolution first-timers.

Diversity is not only race and gender, which dominate today’s headlines, Grant said, it's ethnicity, religion, politics, socio-economics, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, personality and ability. Each offers a different life experience, a different point of view, a different way of doing things.
