With a focus on the groundswell of consolidation impacting providers of communications, connectivity, cloud and IT products and services, this panel discussion will help agents figure out what's next for their business. Speakers will discuss the different options agents can explore to continue to grow, scale and create value. Rather than a theoretical look at these business strategies, this panel will provide a first-person perspective from agents who have pursued these paths and entities--agents or masters--who are offering paths to agents in the channel.

Key discussion points include:

  • How to join forces with another organization to benefit from combined expertise and resources
  • Investing in the businesses to scale further
  • Whether to sell a book to a master agent in whole or in part
