One on One: Work Hard, Play Hard

Helicopters and Bourbon Tasting, need I say more?! Of course, your One on One “In The Cloud” experience will be fun and exciting. But, don’t worry, we will also ensure that you have plenty of time for informative education sessions, provocative keynotes, and individual meetings with your peers and industry leaders. You don’t want to miss anything we have planned. Take a look at just a few items in store for attendees!

Focus on Our Top Sellers

One on One weekend begins with recognition of our FastStart Achievers. FastStart celebrates the partners that kicked their sales into high gear during the first half of 2017, and many are now focusing on achieving President’s Club! This pack of sales experts will be enjoying a VIP, “In The Cloud” experience all weekend long, and will be enjoying executive rooms and fancy dinners alongside their over-performing peers.

We strive to build a community environment by connecting partners that share the same challenges and level of success. It’s the type of learning that can’t be put into a presentation or training session. Your FastStart and President’s Club Achievers have a unique opportunity to spend real quality time with their peers and select providers in an environment that fosters an open and honest exchange of knowledge and expertise.

First Day In

Day one kicks off with two high-impact sessions – “The Anatomy of a Wildly Successful Lead Gen Campaign,” and “Partners at Their Peak.” Our high energy guest speaker will help you understand how to drive a lead gen campaign that will put you in the running for next year’s FastStart Club, and might even help you join us for this year’s President’s Club in Los Cabos, Mexico! The power-packed session on lead gen is followed by a couple of world-class partners that will provide their insight on how they built — and continue to build — highly successful agencies. Their companies encompass traditional telecom while rapidly adopting new services, technologies, and market avenues that will sustain their growth and provide long-term success for their teams and personal finances.   

Once we have your heads spinning from the high impact afternoon sessions, it is time to really head Into the Cloud. We will all head over to beautiful Ventana’s — a glass-enclosed event center that faces the new Mercedes Benz stadium. Join us for some amazing food, lots of great drinks, and a spectacular view from the outdoor terrace while we watch helicopters landing and taking off over our heads. We’re confident there will be some perfect selfie opportunities while you circle above downtown Atlanta in chartered helicopters as the sun sets over the Empire City of the South. You don’t want to miss this opening night!

Day 2 – Business as You Like It

Day 2 is our official business session with a week’s worth of content compressed into a day. There’s a little bit of everyone’s favorite throughout the day – Lisa Miller of Level 3 will keynote, our president Phil Keenan imparts his English sensibilities, and there’s even a battle-round between providers. But with all due respect to prepared presentations, the partner favorite continues to be the roundtable sessions where partners lead the discussions, decide the topics, and get into what really makes a difference in building a successful business. The partner roundtable sessions not only validate partners’ feelings about their challenges, it opens their eyes to new ideas, new solutions, and new friends in the business.

Day 2 closes with a lively expo and high-energy recognition banquet for our top sales performers. Get ready for a truly different experience during dinner and the award ceremonies. Sorry, I can’t say any more, you need to be there to experience it and take home a bit of the fun.

2017’s One on One: Where Steel Sharpens Steel

MicroCorp's One On One is where channel partners get the tools they need to succeed.In 2016, the biggest response from our partners after our annual One on One event regarded the community feeling they experienced. They felt the value in an environment that encouraged learning. This year, we are embracing that response, and aiming to make our event on September 10th and 11th a “partner One on One” not a MicroCorp One on One.

By that I mean, this event is for fostering the relationships that our partners have built over the years. We want them to make new relationships, revisit old ones, and learn from the experts. We are framing this year’s event around the family and community of our partner environment, and we want all attendees to share their knowledge.

Expanding the conversation

Last year, our round table event had partners and experts sharing their experiences and advice. It was the one session where I had to force people to leave because they were finding so much value in engaging with each other. We are aiming to recreate that space again this year where partners can share their concerns and expertise.

The benefits of attending the One on One and getting access to this unique community include:

  • Learning from industry peers and colleagues
  • Building sales opportunities
  • Forming new relationships
  • Engaging with experts from the MicroCorp team
  • Getting personal time with industry leaders

You are not alone

One on One is unique because the conversations don’t involve providers hitting you with a sales pitch. This year will be no different. We want partners to feel connected and comfortable, knowing that their problems are not theirs alone, but are shared among others.

Let’s share intelligence, help each other understand the industry, and offer best practices. We’re going to keep with the spirited fun that One on One is all about, too. We look forward to seeing folks we haven’t seen all year. Stay tuned in the next blog for updates on which speakers, and sessions will be a part of One on One this year. And register here to be a part of this industry-leading event.
