Building the Future of Enterprise Partnerships @ Catalyst

Chip Rodgers

WorkSpan and Partnership Leaders are teaming up once again - this time for an event designed specifically for enterprise partnership leaders.

You know about Catalyst, the amazing event built just for partner leaders by partner leaders? Takes place in Denver this year on August 21 - 23.The event was a tremendous success last year with 400+ attendees in Miami and this year will be even bigger with over 700 partner leaders attending. If you haven’t already, get your ticket at 

What’s different this year is, WorkSpan has teamed up with Partnership Leaders to host The Enterprise Summit at Catalyst to bring the enterprise view of partner co-selling to Catalyst and broaden the content experience to include enterprise partnering topics and enterprise thought leaders. 

The Enterprise Summit began with a conversation earlier this spring between Nirav Desai, Asher Mathew, Chip Rodgers, and Amit Sinha - envisioning the summit as a platform to bring outstanding enterprise leaders to discuss best practices, establish standards and recognize the critical elements of successful enterprise co-selling.

The market is shifting quickly to co-selling as an effective way to partner and grow revenue for all partners involved. However, the concept of co-selling has remained elusive to many partner leaders, and the Enterprise Summit at Catalyst is here to change that.

The Enterprise Summit at Catalyst boasts an impressive lineup of thought leaders from prominent companies like EY, AWS, SAP, and Cisco.

Here's the Enterprise Summit agenda:

This event offers more than just a wealth of knowledge and learning opportunities. With hundreds of fellow partnership professionals in attendance, it's an opportunity to network with other partner leaders, build relationships in the industry, and forge connections to propel your career forward.

“Partnership Leaders is thrilled to be working with WorkSpan on the upcoming Enterprise Summit at Catalyst. This gathering of enterprise partnering visionaries, innovators, and industry leaders will set the standard for partnership events, professional recognition, and learning opportunities for modern enterprise co-selling." - Asher Mathew, CEO of Partnership Leaders.

WorkSpan is the #1 co-sell solution that empowers companies to turbocharge and scale their co-sell revenue growth. WorkSpan is committed to co-sell excellence from the largest enterprises to fast-growing startups and mid-sized enterprises. 

The Enterprise Summit exemplifies this commitment. The event serves as a platform for bringing together brilliant minds in partnerships, with the aim of fostering a deeper understanding and wider application of co-selling across the partnership landscape.
