ConnectWise, developer of the leading business management solution designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARs and MSPs, announced today that futurist Daniel Burrus will give the keynote speech at its 7th annual IT Nation Partner Summit, November 9-11 at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.
Burrus is considered one of the world's leading technology forecasters and business strategists. As the founder and CEO of Burrus Research, a research and consulting firm that monitors global advancements in technology-driven trends, he helps clients understand how technological, social and business forces are converging to create enormous untapped opportunities. He is a strategic advisor to leaders from Fortune 500 companies and the author of six books, including The New York Times and Wall Street Journal best seller Flash Foresight, the highly acclaimed book Technotrends, and a monthly newsletter. A frequent guest on national television including Larry King Live and Lou Dobbs, CNN, CNBC, CNBC Asia and Bloomberg, Burrus was called one of the top three business gurus in the nation by the New York Times.
“ConnectWise partners attending IT Nation 2011 are tremendously fortunate to get firsthand business and technology insight from someone of Daniel Burrus’ caliber,” said Arnie Bellini, ConnectWise CEO. “I encourage the IT Nation to read his books and follow his work, and find out for themselves just how powerful and valuable this keynote will be for them in identifying new and emerging technologies, and creatively solving business problems.”
Considered by many to be the premier conference for the managed services industry, IT Nation 2011 is expected to draw more than 2,000 attendees. Attendees connect with peers, learn about new solutions available in the marketplace and adopt go-to-market strategies that will improve their businesses today and well into the future. In addition to the three-day conference itself, IT Nation 2011 also features many pre-conference events and the second IT Nation Golf Tournament at the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club. Platinum sponsors featured in this year’s Solutions Pavilion will include CharTec, Cisco, LabTech Software, Level Platforms, Quosal and Zenith Infotech.
