IT Nation 2015 Proffered Topic

Having been involved in the last few ConnectWise user group meetings in the UK, when they put a call out for speakers at IT Nation 2015 ( in Orlando, Florida I thought, well why not. My wife (business partner and friend), Samantha thinks I may just be a little bit mad. I have never even been to an IT Nation event before let alone put myself forward to speak.

Maybe that’s why I am fearless?IT Nation 2015

ConnectWise is the main line of business application we use within our IT Managed Service Provider business in Kent and it is a large contributing factor to the adherence of procedures that have created our success and growth over the last few years.

My topic of ‘Ownership does not equal leadership’ has been accepted and I have been scheduled to speak as a ‘Thought Leader’ on 12th November, Thursday at 3pm (so 8pm in the UK).

A common discussion topic in business is how to attract, motivate, develop and retain the best staff. Many business owners assume sharing ownership is the best way to achieve finding the best staff and believe it to be what their staff want. They learn the truth in time and at their cost. Join ConnectWise Partner, Gareth Johns as he highlights the risks of sharing ownership and offers some alternative strategies gleaned from over 25 years of experience.

I look forward to sharing details of this event with you on my return to the UK late November.
