“The Channel Chief 50 Club was held at a great venue. Quiet and intimate. The meeting agenda was meaningful with key topics that are top of mind for all Channel Chiefs, with smaller roundtables for spirited discussion and sharing of best practices. I got a lot out of it and already look forward to the next get together”

Balaji Subramanian VP Global Channel Sales and Alliances – Informatica


 Micheal Mccollough Akamai Technologies"Thanks to the Baptie team for putting together the Club 50.  This impressive peer group helped me to validate the thinking of our current Channel Strategy as well as to provide me very useful insight into trends and strategies about how the Channel World will evolve over the next few years.   Looking forward to the next session."

"The Club 50 group provides tremendously valuable access to the best channel brains in the industry, where the forum enables authentic conversations to occur between these leaders. I've found those conversations often help me think about my business in new and impactful ways."

Mike Conlon Mitel

“I’d heard very positive reviews from attendees of Baptie & Co conferences. All of the topics and roundtable sessions were very relevant to the discussions I’ve been having with the partner community for the past 12-18 months. The ability to pull away from my day to day responsibilities, be able to network, and share/listen to best practices with peers from the industry made the conference well worth the time invested.”

Mike Conlon - VP, Channels - Mitel

“I appreciated the opportunity to spend time exclusively with other Channel VPs across the industry discussing the challenges and opportunities we all face – and especially how we are all adapting to changes. Most beneficial to me were the collaborative conversations around where the channel is headed, and how we, as channel leaders, need to adjust to the transitions through our programs, staffing, shill sets, support and operations. I look forward to contributing to and helping to build this community with Baptie.”
