Women of the Channel Leadership Summit East 2017

Build Connections. Master Leadership. Inspire Others

Today’s women who lead or aspire to inspire others must possess the language of possibility. To break new ground for their organizations, ascend personally and professionally, women must understand that possibility is a new framework for thinking. This means getting comfortable with what is less certain and choosing words that drive invention and creativity. Women of the channel today are gaining significant power across the IT industry and in the corporate world. Their roles and influence have clearly evolved into a major force. As individuals and collectively, women today can change the way people think about the future of sales, marketing and partner management.

Women of the Channel Leadership Summit includes the most prominent and rising women across the spectrum of builders, buyers and sellers. This one-of-a-kind event empowers and cultivates the next generation of female leaders; and offers female channel and IT executives an opportunity to advance their skills, network with peers and be inspired by the women making a significant impact on the IT channel and industry today. Attendees benefit from interactive workshops, peer panels, motivational speakers, networking time and engaging sessions – all focused on the challenges, trends and opportunities in the today’s technology sector.

Testimonials

"I had the opportunity to attend the WOTC event.  The presenters, the content and the networking were spectacular.  If you are a woman in the channel or any woman in business, this event really challenges you to think about yourself and your individual 'brand'. It also provides insights on how to be more successful at your company.  Great job ladies!"
- Victoria Zona, Raritan
"I hightly recommend this event to all my women friends in the channel.  It's inspiring to be surrounded by smart and talented female leaders that are willing to share their experiences (good and bad) with you. You being to realize that they are not so different from you, and that in itself is motivating.  And the fact that everyone is so friendly is just icing on the cake!"
