BOSTON – June 18, 2015 – Continuum®, the industry's only channel-exclusive provider of fully integrated managed IT services solutions, is hosting the panel, “Creating a Stellar Company Culture,” at Navigate 2015 by Continuum, the company’s second annual user conference on Sunday, September 27 – Tuesday, September 29, 2015 at The Cosmopolitan™ of Las Vegas. The panel is moderated by Arlin Sorensen, Founder and CEO of HTG Peer Groups, an international organization of leading IT solution providers with nearly 300 member companies.

WHAT:           “Creating a Stellar Company Culture,” a Panel Moderated by HTG Peer Group’ Founder and CEO Arlin Sorensen at Navigate 2015 by Continuum

WHEN:           Tuesday, September 29, 2015, 1:30 p.m. – 2:15 p.m.

WHERE:         3708 S. Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, Nevada

Arlin Sorensen is being joined by panelist, Michael Gardner, Director of Operations at Computer Solutions Group.; Joy Beland, Managing Partner at LA IT Girl; Vincent Fung, CEO at Debian IT; and Tim Weber, Manager, Infrastructure Services at ADNET Technologies. Culture is king. If your company does not have a good culture, ultimately there will be trouble hitting goals and growing. This partner panel discusses best practices around company culture, why HR is important, what activities improve culture, the importance of company vision and mission, and more.

In 1990, Arlin and his brother Brad formed Sorensen’s Computer Connection, Inc. (SCCI). A merger between SCCI and Connecting Point Joplin in 2002 gave rise to Heartland Technology Solutions (HTS). Under Arlin’s leadership, the company experienced significant growth both organically as well as through mergers and acquisitions between 2003 and 2010. In 2000, he formed HTG Peer Groups, fostering business as well as personal growth through business improvement, accountability and life-work excellence. In 2013, Arlin led the sale of HTS to WesTel Systems so he could focus full time on helping people and companies grow. 

HTG members across the country utilize Continuum’s intelligent Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform that offers proactive problem resolution backed by the company’s industry-leading Network Operations Center (NOC) and Help Desk, resolving thousands of alerts, 24x7x365. These services minimize HTG members’ time dealing with day-to-day IT, allowing them to focus on business and strategic initiatives. Continuum is a Premiere Sponsor of the HTG Centralized Meetings.

At Navigate 2014, Arlin presented a 3-hour peer group workshop, where he gave MSPs the opportunity to experience first-hand what happens in a peer group, including topical discussion, goal setting, business planning and sharing of best practices. HTG is hosting a similar workshop again this year. Navigate 2015 is a 3-day educational and training event for the industry’s top MSP partners and IT resellers led by the best and brightest business and channel leaders.
