IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Push all your chips in, take off your sunglasses, commit to the pot. That's what Sage North America will encourage its business partners to do after a week of rich conversations and deep, meaningful connections at Sage Summit 2014. The annual event -- taking place July 28-31, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas -- will be an immersive education experience that will empower Sage business partners to accelerate business growth and stay competitive.
Through keynotes, sessions and panels, partners will learn more effective ways to work strategically and advise their customers on fully optimizing their resources. Sage partners can also develop meaningful connections with peers; absorb insights for succeeding at the changing business model of delivering cloud-based services; and engage with their customers to together tackle business challenges and grow with confidence.
Facilitated by subject matter experts, conversations at Sage Summit will center on business partners' most pressing concerns, such as business optimization and the strengthening of their sales, marketing, consulting and implementation efforts. They include:
- Keynote from Biz Stone, cofounder of Twitter and cofounder and CEO of Jelly Industries, on the impact of social media on business.
- Panel with Sage honorees of CRN Magazine's "2014 Women of the Channel" on how the Sage partner program can help you grow your business.
- Session with Susan Solovic, small business expert, on strengthening sales, marketing and customer relationships and how small tweaks can transform business results
