Professor of Managed Services?

Gary Pica TruMethods managed servicesGary Pica (pictured), a veteran of mindSHIFT Technologies, is making the leap from managed service provider to industry educator. And he's not alone. As more executives successfully embrace managed services, they're finding time to launch businesses or consulting gigs that educate the MSP masses.

The latest example: Pica has launched TruMethods LLC. He plans to use his new company and a training methodology -- which he's branded as FormulaWon -- to help resellers accelerate their move to managed services.

Pica will share his personal MSP success story during an upcoming road show hosted by Kaseya. He's also confirmed to speak at an event hosted by ConnectWise CEO Arnie Bellini. (Stay tuned for details on that one, and stay tuned for Pica's TruMethods Website to launch soon.)

I know I've skipped/overlooked a few dozen pundits here. But if you can put up with a shameless plug, you can find more pundits in our MSPmentor 250 list -- which identifies the top experts, executives and entrepreneurs across the MSP space.

Back on the topic of MSP education, I'm curious to see how the market evolves this year. Will resellers keep turning out for educational events amid the recession? And which speakers will capture our collective attention? I'll be watching -- and listening -- for clues.
