In May, BT Business Partner Sales held their 14/15 Kick off in London. Martin Clarke, General Manager laid out the strategy for 14/15 and recognised the channel partners on their success in 13/14. This year, there were 8 award categories including Distributor, Growth and Innovation Partners of the year. During the conference, attendees heard from the channel about improvements to the Proposition including Commissions and Service enhancements. BT product managers discussed the exciting product launches which are due later in the year.
Simon Rowen, Recruitment Director for the Partner Channel said “Our Kick-off event incorporates our UK Partner Awards. There is no better time to recognise the success of our partners over the past year, as well as outlining our shared vision for 2014. Without our important network of partners we would not be the organisation we are today. This year, there will be even more opportunities than ever for our partners to succeed with BT Business. We are expanding as a channel and looking for other companies to join our partner network.” Matthew Syed, table tennis international and previous English number 1, put the Partners through their paces. “There were a lot of competitive people and lots of bones and joints creaking” said Richard Woodfield, Getech Sales.
Robert Sturt, The Network Union continues “Winning one award is recognition enough but to be recognised twice is a fantastic accolade! One of our core abilities is sales process which combined with BT’s Global capability is a very compelling value proposition. The innovation award recognises our approach and provides credibility and confidence to our prospects and clients.”
