Lindy Belley

Senior Marketing Manager

HSO

I truly believe the value of this event and key to every marketer’s success is collaboration. Going on 13 years in the Microsoft Dynamics Channel, I love maneuvering through challenges, putting what I learn into action and teaching others. I have spent more than half those years doing what I’m most known for: finding strategic and creative ways to produce and promote in-house videos in the technology space as both an ISV and Partner. In my free time, I enjoy organizing my Sharpies in color order, playing with my pets, bird watching and gardening.

I’ve worked with hundreds of resellers and ISVs over the years, and I love to share what I’ve learned with the community!

Roland Chi
Marketing Manager
Technology Management Concepts

Hi there, I am Roland, the only marketing guy in the industry! Of course, I am kidding (Am I?) Also, I take marketing very seriously – my three marketing masters can attest of that -  and believe that marketing is one of the most miss-understood (aka less understood) competencies in most companies and I make a point to highlight the “strategic” aspects of it instead of the “pretty & stylish” aspects.

Jenny Davis
Organizer of The Partner Event (aka the original BBC Event)

I have 20 years of communications, publishing and event management experience. I’ve worked for very large companies (Microsoft), owned a very small one (The Partner Channel, Inc.) and have done project management work for a variety of industries. I am currently the Director of Communications for a hands-on learning company and focus on customer engagement through events, communications, and special badging and recognition programs.

 

I had the privilege of bringing BBC back the first time with my former boss, long-time friend and marketing extraordinaire, Spider Johnk, in 2004. Growing the event (and magazine), providing Partners with the opportunity to grow their skills in the areas of sales, marketing, and leadership, and making lifelong friends within the community was a highlight of my career. On the personal side...I live in Fargo, North Dakota (yes, people really live there!) with my husband Casey and 5 children (16 down to 7) plus a 5-year old rescue dog. I enjoy being active in my kids' activities, including serving as a team manager for Destination Imagination, take ballet and violin lessons, and am a Master Gardener.

Candyce Edelen
President/CEO
PropelGrowth 
I’m a seasoned entrepreneur with plenty of road rash earned by co-founding two fin-tech companies, one of which made the Deloitte Fast 50 list in 2004. In 2007, I launched PropelGrowth and enjoyed 10 years of growth from inbound leads based on thought leadership I was publishing and existing relationships in the financial industry. But in 2018, my partner and I decided to pivot to a new target market where we didn’t have an existing network. I didn’t have a big travel or conference budget, so meeting people in this new industry was tricky. But I had to generate new sales quickly (or my team would starve). I hate cold calling, so I researched LinkedIn lead generation techniques. After a bit of trial and error, I landed on a strategy that worked. Within 6 months, I made 500 new connections and booked 125 sales calls, using only LinkedIn and Google. It worked so well, I’ve now created a master class to help channel sales and marketing teams achieve the same results. 
 
Julia Flaherty
Digital Marketing Specialist
Ledgeview Partners
I am a Digital Marketer with experience in a variety of industries like wholesale fashion, entertainment, niche beauty, and technology. I have had the great opportunity to explore many avenues of marketing in my career so far. What I enjoy most about marketing is how it is always evolving. The pace of marketing allows me to expand my creativity, grow my technical aptitude, problem-solve and adapt quickly, and network with like-minded professionals who genuinely want to see you thrive. My greatest ambition in life is to use my talents and time to make a meaningful difference in the world. 
 
Michelle Glennie
Co-Founder, COO
The Partner Marketing Group 
Marketing is the key driver of a company’s growth. Helping software and technology publishers, partners and ISVs amplify their marketing and revenue is my specialty, along with my extraordinary team. In 2008, I co-founded The Partner Marketing Group because I saw a lack of quality marketing resources and services specifically for the channel and industry I was so passionate about. As COO, I’ve had the privilege of building the most creative and experienced team of professional consultants, writers, designers and specialists in the business.

Marketing has always been a passion of mine and I love to share my knowledge with others and learn from others in the field as well.

Tania Konczynski

As a self-proclaimed marketing geek, I love all things marketing strategy and automation in a world that is constantly evolving. My passion is to stay up to date with the latest trends and how to implement them on a SMB budget. As a member of the Microsoft ERP channel for over 10 years I have been able to marry my first love which was Excel spreadsheet that balances at the end of the month with my interest on how people buy software. 
 
Donna Krizik
President
Krizik Marketing Group
Since the late 90’s, I’ve been fascinated by the psychology of marketing, and why we make the choices we do. I’ve spent the last 16 years in the ERP channel, helping partners and publishers step up their marketing game. Very few business owners wake up every day with marketing on their mind. I do. It’s what I love, and allows me to keep learning and growing, while helping hard-working businesses tell their story, in their customers’ language. I’ve spoken at numerous conferences, taught live classes, and ran the marketing track at the January 2020 Acumatica Summit. If I can leave you with one thing, it would be, “no tactics without strategy.” 
 
Krista Magnusson
CEO/Founder
Magnusson Enterprises
I've helped numerous companies hone their goals & differentiators, and create marketing campaigns to match, so they get results, instead of increasing stats but not revenue.  After building a successful Sales & Marketing career abroad, I returned to North America in 2010, and joined the ERP reseller ecosystem working with Acumatica, Sage, and NetSuite partners on their business strategy & marketing.  This included managing 6 merger & acquisition transitions, working to grow a client from 32 staff & 330 clients to 88 staff & 1600 clients with 3x revenue growth in 5 years, and completing umpteen website overhauls to improve traffic, lead gen, and brand communication.  I've also sat on multiple non-profit Boards, created & run a mentorship program, and have been a 'Women in Leadership' mentor for 3 years.

In 2020, I saw an opportunity to have an impact with more than one ERP partner at a time and Magnusson Enterprises was created.  My top goals with any client are to make sure they're focusing on THEIR differentiators, not the product, and to remind everyone that even if we're selling B2B technology, we're always still dealing with people.
