On November 21st, 2023, the Managed Services Summit North unfolded as a remarkable culmination of industry expertise, insightful discussions, and invaluable networking opportunities. Hosted by Angel Business Communications, this event marked the pinnacle of our 2023 summit series, following the successful MSS Amsterdam in June and MSS UK in September. Each event surpassed expectations, drawing record numbers of both delegates and sponsors, reinforcing the immense value of these gatherings within the managed services landscape.
The summit kicked off with an electrifying keynote address by Kevin Keegan, a renowned figure who emphasized the transformative power of dedication, effort, and attitude in propelling individuals to the zenith of their respective industries. Keegan’s message resonated deeply, highlighting the importance of giving one’s absolute best, a sentiment that echoed throughout the day's proceedings.
Sponsors played a pivotal role in the success of the summit, showcasing their support for the industry and contributing to the event's vibrant atmosphere. Sponsors included Arcserve, connectWise, Kaseya, LastPass, Nerdio, Pax8, Threatlocker, Druva, Malwarebytes, OpenText, Parallels, Perception Point, SIOS, Sophos, VADE, VANTA, Cloud Billing, Dope Security, E92 Plus, ESET, ETB, Fortress, Humnize, NinjaOne, Red Maple Technologies, Veeam, and Workspace 365. Their involvement underscored their commitment to innovation and excellence within the managed services sphere.
Following Keegan’s impactful session, Kate Wood took the stage to deliver a thought-provoking keynote on an unconventional yet critical topic: how to become one of the worst companies to work for in the UK. Wood’s insights offered a unique perspective, shedding light on pitfalls to avoid and the crucial factors that contribute to a negative work environment, providing attendees with valuable takeaways to enhance their organizational cultures.
