You did it! You finally registered for DISH Team Summit, booked all your flights and settled your hotel accommodations. The next step is always the hardest… trying to decide which of the many classes being offered you’re going to take time to attend.
All-Systems always makes attending the offered trainings a priority, even for our own employees. So we asked our VP of Sales, Evan Schieren, to give us his list of the top 5 classes his team will be both attending and suggesting to our retailers.
Evan’s selections focus primarily on DISH Commercial business. As we’ve been telling retailers for the last few months, this sector of our business has been growing year over year at an astronomical rate. And when the much anticipated “internet of things” really comes into play, the commercial market will have the largest opportunity in profits and revenue.
So if you’re attending Team Summit, be sure to check out these 5 classes so you’ll be ready!
