SBT Roundtable: Jay McBain on Research that Reveals Surprising Truths

I am VERY excited to announce that Jay McBain from Forrester Research has agreed to join us on the SBT Roundtable, October 28th at 9:00 AM Pacific.

Jay is the principal analyst for global channels, partnerships, and alliances at Forrester – one of the most influential global research and advisory firms in the world.

Our topic is: How to Do Research that Reveals Surprising Truths

This is a members-only event. If you are not a member of the Small Biz Thoughts Technology Community, that's okay. Join us and you can join us for the Roundtable.

Members sign up here.

Our goal with the SBT Roundtable is to look at interesting things from a different perspective. That fits perfectly with this month’s guest. If you don’t follow Jay’s blog, you should. Check out https://go.forrester.com/blogs/author/jay_mcbain/.

(Note, also, that Jay's blog is one of the blogs I have on my "blog roll" to the right.)

Jay has been in and around our community for a long time . . . even though he looks very young. And, unlike anybody else I know, Jay jumped into the SMB IT community by trying to define the greater community from a “macro” level. He wanted to know who the biggest employers are, who the biggest influencers are, what the definitive list of news sites is, what the major companies are, and so forth. He wanted to understand all the details of all the variables that make up our community. As a result, he probably understands the greater SMB/MSP community than any other person on earth!

And the really scary part is that he has a lot of this information immediately available at his fingertips.

Please sign up for this Roundtable and send in your questions.

And, of course, join us live!
