Plan to Make More Money – Larry Walsh, Founder & CEO, The 2112 Group

The best way to avoid disruption is to plan for it. Yet, research shows nearly 50% of today’s channel partners still operate without a business plan, much less a continuity plan – and speed without direction is dangerous and growing through disruption takes discipline. In this session, PlanetOne’s Ted Schuman and Chris Werpy and The 2112 Group’s Larry Walsh share what the best-performing partners and MSPs do to stay focused, plan, measure and make more money.
