Event slated to be the largest in the history of the indirect cloud services channel

April 3, 2018

Sandy, UTAH – Telarus, LLC, master agent of network, contact center, mobility, and cyber security today announced the two keynote speakers that will be presenting at the 2018 Telarus Partner Xchange: James Lawrence, also known as the Iron Cowboy, and Lisa Miller, president of wholesale, indirect, and alliances for CenturyLink. They will both be presenting to what is expected to be a record turnout for a master agent conference, where over 50 training sessions will be focused on charting a course for technology transformation. Telarus Partner Xchange 2018, which will be held at the luxurious Boca Raton Resort on June 19-22, is now open for general registration to sales partners of Telarus and members of the media.

“We are excited to have Lisa Miller and the Iron Cowboy speak to our partners,” said Amy Bailey, VP of marketing for Telarus. “Lisa is an icon of our world and leads one of the largest sales organizations in the technology industry. Not only does she know where things are headed, she is also an inspiration to women producing at a high level in an industry that has been predominately male since its inception. James Lawrence, also known as the Iron Cowboy, came up with the crazy idea to do 50 full-length Ironman triathlons in 50 states in 50 days to raise awareness and money to fight childhood obesity. The story of his struggle to organize and accomplish such a herculean feat is one that we can’t wait for him to share with our guests. Beyond our stellar lineup of speakers, classes, and unique networking opportunities, three lucky Telarus partners will win a portion of $30,000 in cash prizes to help them accelerate the growth of their business as part of the Shark Tank competition.”

Telarus Partner Xchange 2018, the first conference Telarus has held outside of Utah, will offer agents over 50 different classes on topics ranging from lead generation, social media, to technical tracks covering SD-WAN, cloud contact center, and even the roll artificial intelligence will play in improving customer interactions. Agents will also have opportunities to schedule private 1-on-1 appointments with executives from over 46 leading technology vendors like Alibaba Cloud – who just signed Telarus as their only Master Agent – and Diamond sponsors like: AT&T, NICE InContact, Rackspace, Spectrum, Comcast Business, Office Depot, RingCentral, and TalkDesk.

“We have an amazing lineup of speakers, content, and activities that are going to ‘WOW’ our guests,” said Patrick Oborn, co-owner of Telarus and original creator of Telarus Partner Summit. “This will also be the first combined national event that the ‘new’ Telarus will be hosting after the combination of Telarus (Telarus Partner Summit) and CarrierSales (Carrier Xchange). What you will see is the best of both events coming together into one, giant, educational, and most importantly, fun event the likes of which have never been seen in this industry. We are also super excited to host the newly re-branded Women of Alliance of Channel Women (formerly known as “Women in the Channel”), which is where, speaking on a panel two years ago, I met Lisa Miller for the first time. I can tell you without equivocation that you’ll be inspired, uplifted, and motivated after you hear her speak. Lisa is the Iron-woman of our industry and James Lawrence will be a perfect complement to her!”
