The Small Business Summit 2006 has received a strong response with active registration in the few weeks since it was first announced. This all-day event taking place Friday, February 10, 2006, at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City, continues to attract new sponsors. Sponsors now include Intel, Intuit, Kodak, Microsoft, M5 Networks, CabinetNG, Xerox, Verizon, Tailwind Consulting and Avanquest. The Summit is targeted to small business owners seeking to grow their businesses through the marriage of best business practices and technology.
The producers, Marian Banker, President of Prime Strategies, http://primestrategies.com, and Ramon Ray, author, speaker and Small Business Technology Evangelist, http://smallbiztechnology.com, have designed the Summit to encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas between small businesses and technology and business solution providers.
“There’s no way around it; small business needs effective technology to compete in the marketplace. Users are eager to become better educated consumers, so improving use of small business technology is a popular topic, as the large number of sign-up shows,” says Banker.
Co-producer, Ramon Ray comments, “Small business owners often need help linking their high-tech tools with their business practices in order to grow their business. That’s what the Summit is about.”
Summit speakers, experts and exhibiters will guide attendees in maximizing the benefits they can achieve from technology solutions and better business processes. Some of the scheduled speakers and expert participants include: Charles Hand, President, NY Metro Region, for Verizon Wireless; Scott Vaccaro, Regional Vice President, Enterprise Rent-A-Car NYC; Lisa McCarthy, Accounting Resource, LLC (Intuit Professional Advisor); Harry Brelsford, SMB Nation; Rex Hammock, Hammock Publishing; Adrian Miller, Adrian Miller Sales Training & Business Development Consulting; Rob Levin, New York Enterprise Report; Dan Hoffman, M5 Networks and Steve Rubel, Cooper Katz.
