What is Schnizzfest?

The concept for Schnizzfest was born six years ago, even before the inception of TruMethods. Gary and Bob wanted to have an event where MSPs from around the world could come together and focus on the process of improving their business without the usual conference distractions.

What knowledge and perspective do you gain?

Schnizzfest is a mixture of content, discussions and member-to-member networking. Topics will include sales, business success principles, and service delivery.

Who attends?

Schnizzfest is only for TruMethods members so the people around you will be implementing the same processes and speaking the same language. This is a great opportunity to share experiences and form relationships with others in the IT Service industry.

This event is for business owners, practice area executives and key employees that touch every area of your business. We will discuss financials, goals and the process for building a successful IT company. Only bring the people in your organization that are in a position to know this information.

The Schnizz is…

  • The embodiment of attitude, self-image and self-discipline
  • A commitment to being the best you can be
  • Helping others to be the best they can be
  • An expectation to succeed
  • Approaching each day with passion and enthusiasm
  • The Schnizz is what separates good companies from great companies!

Schnizzfest Guest Speaker

Vinh Giang

Vinh Giang (pronounced Jang) is first and foremost a businessperson and entrepreneur. While in his 20s, he started an online business with two good friends; all of them had decided to leave their careers in accounting and pharmacy, to pursue their dream of building a successful business. Their online platform, Encyclopedia of Magic, now teaches magic to almost 50,000 students around the world. For this innovative and successful business idea, Vinh and his friends were awarded Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

The strength of your victories in business is based on the people that work for you. This is why it’s so important that you connect with your people, you inspire them and you motivate them—that’s what I help you do in my presentations.“ – Vinh Giang

Vinh’s mission in business and life is to share the psychology of illusion. He has devoted himself to understanding the ways in which people are fooled by illusions and by the tricks we play on ourselves. During his presentations, he demonstrates how this occurs.

Coming from the humble beginnings of a Vietnamese refugee family, Vinh has worked with companies from all over the world. Mentored by internationally recognized experts in innovation and success psychology, such as Matthew Michalewicz, he shares fresh, cutting-edge topics with his audience.

Hearing Vinh will open your mind to new possibilities, as he takes you on an unforgettable journey through stories, remarkable insights into human psychology, business and the wonderful art of magic.

“I believe that magicians are salespeople; they sell one of the most difficult products in the world. They sell magic—they sell the illusion. The way they’re able to sell magic is by working ridiculously hard. It takes thousands and thousands of hours to be able to sell the illusion, to be able to really sell the magic. Imagine if you applied the same mindset to your company—imagine if you applied the same dedication to your business—think about what you could achieve.” – Vinh Giang

  • The best of the industry are here. These are the people you want to learn from and this is the group to be with. Do you want to run with the mediocre or run with the best in the industry? – Myles Keough, Spade Technology
  • Schnizzfest is a great opportunity to be in the community. Community is so critical to success; being able to meet the people that are doing this in other markets on a daily basis is paramount in achieving and exceeding your goals. - Scott Warner, Connecting Point
  • The content is the best of any event we attend. It is always very specific, concise, and applicable to building your business. No matter where you are in business there is always something you can take away. – Stuart Bryan, I-M Technology
