Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012

Small Business Technology author Karl Palachuk announced that Josh Peterson will present a keynote address on Measuring the Keys to Success at the first major Online Conference for Small Business IT Consultants, Managing for Success 2012.

Managing for Success 2012 will be held online June 26-28, 2012 and features eighteen hours of training for IT professionals, computer consultants, and managed service providers who focus on the Small and Medium Business market.

Josh is an amazing addition to the SMB Online Conference, said Palachuk. Hes one of the premier business coaches focused on the IT solution provider. He has trained an army of IT consultants and presented to thousands of people around the country. Were very pleased to have him at our event!

Petersons keynote address will focus on the most important elements for success in a small business. Many people think they need to track fifty or sixty variables in order to monitor the health of their company, says Peterson, So they end up measuring nothing. There are only a handful of things that are critically important to your success. Well talk about them.

As a Senior Consultant with the Taylor Business Group, Peterson helped IT Solution Providers become more profitable for over eight years and loves the challenge of helping companies of all sizes. In addition to his direct consulting, Peterson has performed workshops for hundreds of Managed Service Providers and IT Solution Providers around the United States, Australia and Canada on topics related to Service Management, Financial Analysis, and Sales Management and Strategy. He is a passionate student and proponent of client loyalty and satisfaction measurements, specifically Net Promoter Score.

FusionTek is committed to proving that a professional sales team can make all the difference in our industry. Currently there are six highly motivated and successful sales people in the company.
