The Institute of Directors (IoD) was founded in 1903 and within three years they were awarded a Royal Charter to support, represent and set standards for business leaders nationwide. It’s impressive what they do for businesses all over the World.
We think this is the perfect place to host our channel event for many reasons!
The IoD building is beautiful. Its building’s history is amazing. The Location is central. The IoD organisation is incredible. Most importantly, the IoD helps business leaders succeed! This goal mirrors some of what we aspire to do in the IT Channel and our VARTrends – MSPTrends event. Beyond joining us, we encourage you to explore the IOD and consider how they may benefit you. We have absolutely nothing to do with this organisation, but we are impressed with what they seem to do and happy that they allowed us to host our event in their beautiful building in the heart of London!
During the day we will be hosting our VARTrends – MSPTrends channel conference featuring TEN of the top channel leaders, experts and coaches in the UK IT Industry. I will be coming over the pond to share some insights on what’s happening in the North American channel and globally. It may help you to better plan to leverage what’s coming. I will also share the top secrets of the most successful VARs and MSPs. You will learn exactly what you need to do in order to accelerate your VAR / MSP business success in the coming year!
Get the best perspectives from every angle and some insights that you may not know when it comes to best business practices for MSPs and VARs.
Alex Tatham, Managing Director of Westcoast, UK’s largest IT distributor will be joining me to offer his insights and perspectives. Carl West, GFK’s Supply Chain Director will also be sharing his latest research data on the technology market in the UK and Europe. Other channel experts like Jacqui Rand, Anne Lambton and Pete Walker will also share their valuable insights and perspectives. Last, but not least, we will have four amazing top business coaches Paul Lloyd, Mark Eydman, Neil Jeffery and Keith Grover will deliver some high-value business skills that will empower you and your team immediately! Check out a previous article on what you can expect and listen to some podcasts. Review who and what these people do from their LinkedIn profiles. You may be impressed and want to come get to know them personally!
We will also be hosting Britain’s 50 Best Managed IT Companies Awards in the evening. This may sound a lot more extravagant than it really is…all we will be doing is simply recognising and handing the VARs and MSPs a cool award if the scored high enough in the assessment test. Still lots of time to complete the online “test” if you want to earn one of these awards. Seats are limited so book now if you do not want to miss this great networking opportunity and celebration with some of the Country’s best managed IT companies. I am personally looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing some ideas and a few pints. I will be wearing black tie, but business attire is acceptable (you may want to take a few pictures). Winning this award can really help you and your business in so many ways. More importantly, the assessment test will help you to better understand your business weaknesses so you can improve! The test is free and the award is free!
