** A Day in the Life of an Independent ICT.ms Project Manager **
After a hard day of a zillion conference calls and emails helping clients get through the bustle of managing a multi-location WAN & VPN it's kind of nice to take a short break to relax with the other sales engineers & fellow PMs at the companies that provide the actual ICT managed services the client is subscribing to.
And that's what I got to do Wednesday of this week, courtesy of Broadboice, a UCaaS/VoIP provider & Telarus, a large national technology services broker. Yep, I got to go on a cruise in San Diego Bay aboard the yacht, "Bella Luna" piloted by Captain John and first mate Brandy. (If you're looking for a San Diego Bay boat event for up to 50 people call Captain John at 619-928-2441).
So the event was very low key and hosts Eric Brooker & Yvette Bratt at Broadvoice and Molly Lozano & Andrew Bowser from Telarus mingled with the 20 partners attending to ensure they understood the benefits of working UCaaS deals with Broadvoice through a master agency like Telarus that ensures the best vendors meet the best partners, consultants & independent project managers.
I did not meet any partners who had sold a Broadvoice deal but I'm looking forward to 1) meeting & interviewing any consultants or partners who've installed a Broadvoice deal, and 2) being part of a Broadvoice end-user deal so I can experience first hand why a business customer would buy & a partner would sell Broadvoice.
I did meet some other really cool partners & consultants though and I'll be interviewing them at this site over the next several weeks.
