May 22, 2020

After what we’ll call a “COVID hiatus,” Craig and Kevin are back with some important messages for these trying times. But, as usual, humor as well in this latest episode of Coffee With Craig and Kevin.

First up, the guys welcome Mike Schmidtmann, business coach and owner of Trans4mers, into the coffeehouse. Mike talks about the current climate for recruiting and hiring talent. He also offers up one big piece of advice for pushing through difficult economic times and coming through stronger than before.

Also on the show is Channel Partners’ Kris Blackmon. The editor extraordinaire updates us on the 2020 MSP 501, which ranks the world’s top managed service providers. So MSPs, listen up! Kris has all the facts about applying and getting recognized for your outstanding businesses.

Furthermore, Kris and Craig will discuss all of the new digital and virtual opportunities available on Channel Partners Online and Channel Futures. With so many events canceled this spring, Coffee with Craig and Kevin is keeping you up to speed on the industry.

All that, plus Digi, the podcast’s digital services robot mascot, tells us about his stand-up comedy tour. Also, the guys lament the loss of sports, and Kevin introduces the podcast’s first sponsor — much to Craig’s chagrin.
