Buffalo…The home of 4-time AFC Champions the Buffalo Bills, as well as to a great Buffalo IT company – Globalquest Solutions.
On June 28th and 29th, Ulistic, with help from Globalquest, hosted many of the leading managed IT service companies from Canada and the United States for two days of information sharing and collaboration on how to build stronger and profitable managed service businesses.
I enjoy this gathering every quarter. For two solid days, many of our top clients gather somewhere in the United States to share trade secrets and business intelligence with each other on where the managed services marketplace is heading. (Soon we’ll be hosting these sessions in Canada as well.)
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that face-to-face relationships trump all other types of interaction. Yes – getting together for two days with peers will always beat out phone calls and communication via social media. There’s something special about sitting across the table from peers in a business meeting and then, later in the day, breaking bread and clinking a glass or two.
The Ulistic High-Performance Club (HPC) is entering into its third year in 2019. We’ve come a long way since the first meeting back in Savannah, Georgia in January of 2016.
HPC members have seen significant growth in their MSP practices. And their peer relationships have spawned some rock-solid business relationships.
I just love to see Ulistic’s clients come together and openly share what’s working and what’s not.
Here are some key takeaways from our Buffalo meeting:
I’ve been a member of peer groups for many years, since my very first experience as a member of HTG 3 back in the 2005 timeframe. HTG was instrumental in the growth of my MSP business IT Matters, from 3 guys fixing computers to a leading IT services company in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I can’t stress the importance of peer group memberships enough.
The Ulistic HPC will be making a shift in 2019 as we enter our fourth year. We’ll be looking for new and innovative ways to continue bringing additional value to our clients. Watch your email for your personal invite.
