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!
