SMB Focus: SMB IT Reseller conference


Just thought I’d give this a plug because I like the concept behind it.

Wayne Small, a SBS MVP, who runs the Sydney SBS UG (that’s Small Business Server) is running a conference – SMB Focus – in late November (23 & 24) for small to medium business IT resellers.

Wayne, who I’ve been chatting with lately (he was kind enough to lend me his video camera so I could record a UG meeting) has been running his own business for a decade or so now and understands many of the pressures and stresses that are involved.

In particular this part of the conference caught my eye:

Another key area that many SMB IT resellers often overlook is the proper work/life balance. Many of us are working extended hours and don’t pay enough attention to the lifestyle, the fun and enjoyment of what we’re working so hard to achieve. We’ll be including a number of aspects of lifestyle training in this event to ensure we can get a good balance across the board.

I think this is a great initiative – how often do you hear developer/IT Pro/technology conferences discuss these aspects? But it is very important.

Early bird registration closes at the end of August.
