Continuum hosting its first ever Australian Partner Day

23 Feb 17

Continuum is hosting its first annual Partner Day in Sydney this coming March 16.

The full-day event is set to be packed with unique content to aid the company’s managed-service provider (MSP) partners and prospects to improve business strategies, increase sales and marketing efforts and gain a better understanding of Continuum products and services.

Continuum chief revenue officer, Rober Kocis is delivering the keynote address, ‘Building a High Performance Sales Team.’

“Continuum’s Australian Partner Day is all about increasing revenue for our MSP partners’ businesses and to help them to improve operational efficiencies and profitability through partner education,” says Robert Kocis.

“We are delighted to continue our investment and commitment to the Asia Pacific market by bringing our Australian partners together for a day of training and networking.”

This year, Continuum announced an increased focus on the Asia Pacific (APAC) market, by increasing their role in the region and opening a new headquarters in Sydney.

Frank Bauer (part of Continuum’s founding team) was appointed the new APAC managing director, and asserts that with a direct presence in the region, the company is better equipped to help partners meet their service level commitment and support their operations.

Webroot and Autotask are the gold sponsors of the event, backed up by CompTia as a guest sponsor. Each of these companies will have a guest speaker to present to Continuum’s partners.

So, what can you expect? Some of the topics on the agenda include Continuum’s 2017 product roadmap and AU strategy, vision of the channel and, “Client Engagement Best Practice,” presented by Raymond Vrabel, Senior Director, Strategic Partners at Continuum.

Managing director at Future-Logic, Nathan Colyer-Long attended Continuum’s global partner conference (Navigate 2016) in September.

“Having participated in all of their quality sessions, I’m sure their inaugural event and future events will only mirror the dedication and effort they put forth to drive value into their events and the IT services provider community,” Colyer-Long says.
