Guest Presenters

Does Size Matter?
How can the independent IT Service Provider succeed in the next 5 years?

Presented by Dennis Muscat, CEO

Bronze Sponsor - Telarus

How do you navigate a sustainable business model through the corporate jungle of multinationals and category killer organisations? How do you build a reputation for excellence in the complex and ever changing area of information technology? Business plans are critical, but which bits are really important and how do you start? 


Telarus CEO Dennis Muscat will offer insights into how IT Service Providers can implement winning strategies over the next 5 years.


Telarus is an SMBiT Professionals vendor sponsor who believes that being elite and highly specialised is what distinguishes a provider from the larger vendors. Telarus specialises in delivering world class network, security and cloud solutions to mid-size and corporate businesses.


Dennis Muscat has an extensive 30-year track record in business management and strategy within Australia and Asia Pacific region. In 1999 Dennis co-founded the start-up Pacnet business in Australia and by 2008 this business achieved a turnover of over $100m per annum. He has consulted extensively in the IT &T industry and has been CEO of Telarus since 2011.
