St. Louis, MO – August 16, 2023 — Facilisgroup, a leading software-as-a-service company, and partnering community within the promotional products industry, commenced its 2023 Partner Summit series, Unleashing Potential: Building the Future of Your Business, in Boston, Massachusetts last month.
Facilisgroup President Ashley McCune opened the event with the State of Facilis speech expanding on company updates relevant to the partner community. “Our top priority is driving additional value to our partners. Having the opportunity to share our latest innovations is always a personal highlight for me,” said McCune.
The three-day summit offered attendees the opportunity to network and collaborate on leadership best practices, transformative innovation strategies, and industry education. Futurist Alex Salkever presented on the future of AI and the benefits that translate directly to the promotional products industry, specifically guiding leaders on leveraging the technology to enhance current workflows. Furthermore, industry leaders Dale Denham, Promotional Products Association International President and CEO, Jon Norris, Starline Inc. COO, and Nettie Sparkman, Foxtrot COO, participated in a panel discussion expanding on transformative technology’s impact on the industry.
Among other notable happenings, TEDx Talk presenter and author, Justine Froelker, led a workshop dedicated to fearless authentic leadership. “She was amazing,” said Pamela Bickett, CFO of Prosperity Promotions. “Having the courage to lead is tough, and this gave me permission to have that courage and how to do so with empathy.”
At every Facilisgroup event, attendees partner together for a cause that gives back to the local community through the technology provider’s charitable program, Facilis Cares. At the Boston summit, attendees supported the Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center by assembling “gear packs” for Boston middle school students for future hands-on science lessons held on the island.
In true Facilisgroup fashion, each day ended with a standout experience unique to the area. The first evening, guests were treated to supplier-sponsored dine-arounds, or group dinners hosted in select restaurants throughout Boston. On the final evening, attendees boarded a boat and were transported to the private Thompson Island for an exclusive afterparty finale.
“A great event,” expressed Nolan Parker, National Account Manager at S&S Activewear. “You guys hit a lot of homeruns. We suppliers appreciate how Facilis handles business. Engagement with this group far exceeds the rest.”
Facilisgroup will host its second Partner Summit, September 26-29, in Denver, Colorado. Attendees can expect a similar experience as Alex Selkever and Justine Froelker reprise their workshops, dine-arounds take on a Denver flavor, and a final evening to remember Après-ski style at Mile High Station, located in downtown Denver.
