What They Said: Top Reasons
for B2SMB Pros to Attend the Leaders’ Forum


Best-in-Class for B2SMB
 

What a great two days. You guys are building something super cool and INCREDIBILY valuable.” – Jill Nelson, CEO/Founder, Ruby Receptionists

“I was so incredibly impressed on who you were able to gather together to talk about how we better support the SMB community.” – Erik Day, VP/GM – Small Business, Dell 

“The event was first class, from the people, the connections and the take home value.” – Sean Cohen, COO, AWeber

There’s no other event that entirely focuses on the highly challenging $500Bil Business-to-Small-Business marketspace, bringing B2SMB pros at all levels a unique and intense value.


A Focus on What Works

“It was great to hear the experiences of the speakers and other attendees. We came away with some immediate points of optimization for our go to market process.” – Joanna Knox, BD Lead, Fundbox

“We thought the event was very well done!   You guys brought it! The networking and content was spot on.” – Aaron Bailey, COO, Business.com 

“My team and I learned so much during the conference with all the folks who are serving SMBs. Overall, a truly inspiring event.” – Liz Yoon, Partnerships Management, LegalZoom 

We emphasize what works when it comes to reaching, engaging, keeping, keeping and growing SMBs.  With no time for theory, our attendees leave a whole lot smarter on what to do next.


Pro-Grade Networking

 “Great connections and networking.” – Carrie Jacobson, VP Technology & Services, Office Depot

“There was great energy in the room and lots of good opportunity to network.” – Kelly Thomas Nojaim, VP Partner Development, Microsoft

We pride ourselves on bringing together B2SMBs best and brightest and fostering their peer-to-peer exchanges, with plenty of time and space to comfortably interact.


What’s Now & What’s Next

“I found a lot of value connecting with various leaders in the space and learning how different companies are approaching the SMB segment.” – Dip Ghuman, Strategic and Product Partnerships, Indeed

“Definitely think it put Lorem on the radar for a lot of important partners in the future and lots of great content from other innovators in the SMB space.’ – Sam Wilcoxon, Founder, Lorem

We believe it’s critical that B2SMB pros see what’s here and what’s coming when it comes to the millions of Small Business they are trying to sell. Count on us to keep looking ahead!  


More than a Single Event

“I think this will grow year over year and I look forward in participating in future.” – Jenn Allen, SMB Segment Lead, Cisco

“You put together a great event and it’s definitely going to be one of the must-go to events for everyone who is serving small businesses.” – Martin Schmidt, Strategic Development, 1&1

“Thank you for the opportunity and really enjoyed it. You are building something very interesting.” – Doug Bewsher, CEO, Leadspace

B2SMB Institute events are focus-points for our Members, but our Member community, segment Councils, SMB research and resources (like Playbooks!) adds value throughout the year and beyond!


And It’s Fun?!?

“It was a ton of fun.” – Darian Shirazi, CEO, Radius

“Absolutely amazing event.” – Max Pechersky, PromoRepublic, CEO/Co-Founder

“Seriously, it was a great show – congratulations to you for taking the lead and driving this. Much needed and I made numerous contacts – for which I can see value on both sides of the equation.” – Lem Lloyd, SVP, Buzzboard 

From the beginning, we’ve been impressed by our very own B2SMB event Speakers, facilitators, and attendees – great Pros with great experiences and great willingness to share. We make peer-to-peer fun with lots of events within our events that foster casual, comfortable exchange, and more than a few laughs.
