After wrapping up a two-day event in Raleigh, N.C., last month (pictured above), the ASCII SMB IT Success Summit is now heading to the New York/New Jersey area on September 22-23, another stop on its 2021 series of business-building events for managed service providers (MSPs).
ASCII Summits bring MSPs together to learn best practices, network, find new revenue streams, and stay current with the latest industry trends.
The N.Y./N.J. event starts at 11am on Wednesday, September 22, with badge pickup and lunch, followed by welcome remarks. Attendees will then hear a special added session: “Tales from the Breached.” The rest of the afternoon includes sessions on cloud, cybersecurity, XaaS, compliance, IT assessments, and more.
ASCII member Stephen Monk, CEO of Noverus Innovations, will present on “How MSPs Can Best Manage Growing Pains.”
The day ends with an evening networking reception.
On day 2, Jerry Koutavas, president of The ASCII Group, will kick off the morning with his presentation on “Where MSPs Should Reinvest in 2021.”
In addition, C.J. Ezell, founder and CEO, Cross Bay Digital Marketing, will present “Be Heard! Why Your MSP Story Matters More Now.”
Session topics throughout the day include growing margin and MRR, cloud, cybersecurity, building a client advisory board, and more. Attendees can also browse the solutions pavilion.
Keynote speaker Mike Michalowicz, business makeover specialist and author of the Pumpkin Plan and Profit First, will be discussing how businesses can determine what to do, in what order, to ensure healthy, fast, and permanent growth with his latest book Fix This Next.
