Ingram Micro has announced its national Partner Enablement Roadshow 2012.
The five-city - Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth – roadshow starts in Adelaide on May 15 and winds up in Sydney on May 29.
Ingram Micro director of marketing, Grant Cleary, said the roadshow aimed to both educate and excite resellers.
“It’s all about technology and solutions,” Cleary said. “We’ll have tier one vendor sponsors doing presentations on major topics such as Cloud computing plus we also want to educate resellers on how to deliver strong sales results.
“And we want to network with those resellers and bring them together with vendors.”
The mission statement for the Partner Enablement Roadshow is simple: Provide value to the channel via enablement and networking opportunities.
The Roadshow will feature a keynote speaker, Simon Harris, who will take attendees through a working session on sales effectiveness and How to Supercharge your Sales Force in 2012.
