Changing Tides

Change is inevitable, but that doesn't mean facing change is easy. However, with the right attitude, embracing the unknown will let your company thrive, instead of falling behind, according to a panel of speakers at The Channel Company's Women of the Channel event in Napa, California.

The panel – led by Wendy Hoey, director of distribution and vendor alliances for Optiv – included IT executives from three companies that were no stranger to business model disruption.

The speakers included Muffin Mott, Symantec's head of global channel marketing; Wendy Petty, executive director of global channel sales for Verizon Enterprise Solutions; and Stacey Wu, senior vice president of global marketing for Fortinet.

Here's what the panel had to say.
