Innovation, Investment & The Key To Success For Solution Providers

What sets best-of-breed CEOs apart is their uncanny ability to be forward-looking. This does not happen by accident, as these solution provider executives must develop their capacity to envision the future of the channel as well as their own organizations. As strategists, they shape the channel’s future in the form of services to offer, the customers to pursue, the strategic partnerships to forge, and the next-generation skills to create for employees. These leaders are focused on answering the question, “Where are we going?” Today’s leading channel CEOs come together at the BoB Conference to leverage their collective wisdom so they can address the industry’s biggest challenges.
