TAMPA, Fla., July 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ConnectWise, developer of the leading service management software designed exclusively for IT service providers, VARS, ISVs and MSPs, today announced that Simon Sinek, author of Start with Why, will be the keynote speaker at its ninth-annual IT Nation Partner Summit, held November 13-15, at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Sinek, described as "a visionary thinker with a rare intellect," will speak to more than 2,000 attendees on November 15.
"We're excited to have such a thought-provoking keynote at IT Nation this year," said Arnie Bellini, ConnectWise CEO. "Simon's whole belief system centers on encouraging people to do things that inspire them, and it is our hope that partners at IT Nation will walk away from the event feeling rejuvenated and inspired to lead change in their own organizations."
Sinek has the unique ability to move and stimulate audiences, encouraging those he interacts with to constantly ask why: why do I get out of bed every morning? Why does my business exist? What is my purpose? With a bold goal to help build a world in which the vast majority of people go home every day feeling fulfilled by their work, Sinek is leading a movement to teach leaders and organizations how to inspire people.
"Simon will underscore an important theme for partners that will be evident throughout IT Nation," added Bellini. "As a technology company, it's not about the technology, services or products you provide, it's about why you provide them and what value you offer your customers."
"I am looking forward to the opportunity to hear Simon Sinek, a world-renowned speaker, present at this year's IT Nation," said Tim Rettig, CEO of Intrust IT. "ConnectWise puts personality, care and thought into everything they do and bringing Sinek to IT Nation is just another example of how in tune the company is with the current landscape and their partners' changing needs."
All IT Nation attendees will receive a copy of Sinek's book, Start with Why, and he will sign books after his keynote.
