What Our Clients Had To Say About
The 2020 Virtual Boot Camp
“I Had High Expectations For Boot Camp 2020… And You FAR EXCEEDED My Expectations!”
“Your annual Boot Camps over the years have been nothing short of amazing.
They are always well worth the expense and time of traveling from New Zealand. You continue to raise the bar year after year.
This year was no different, even though you had to move the entire Boot Camp online with very short notice. I have to say that the virtual Boot Camp this year FAR EXCEEDED my expectations, and I had high expectations! Way to go Robin and the Technology Marketing Toolkit team – you nailed it. AGAIN!
– Vijay Nyayapati
“Extremely Impressed With My First Boot Camp Experience!”
“As a first time attendee of Robin Robins’ Boot Camp, I was extremely impressed with this year’s virtual event. Despite not having the face-to-face experience, I can confidently say that the virtual lobby, interactive vendor booths and the ongoing chat dialog ENHANCED the experience immensely
Your speakers, the compelling topics and all of the information gleaned was excellent. Many times I felt I was on the receiving end of a fire hose, but I was able to capture a lot of valuable information.
As a result of both Robin and Marcus Lemonis talking about doubling down on marketing, I have joined your Accelerators Club to start doubling down on my marketing.
Mahalo from Maui, and I can’t wait until next year!!!”
– Mikol Westling, President and CEO of Maui Tech Solutions

I want to thank you for being tenacious as hell
. You do practice what you preach, and you do not stop pursuing prospects. For that I am grateful. You knocked me out with a job very, very well done. I would not have the confidence and excitement to face the next year if it were not for your Boot Camp.
– Shawn Massa, Golden Tech

– Steve & Donna Edrington, Service Solutions
“I Didn’t Want To Skip A Single Minute!”
“Going into this virtual Boot Camp, I thought, “How will Robin pull this one off?” Oh boy, was I surprised! As we have come to expect, Robin did not disappoint. Her and her team put on such a FANTASTIC virtual event under difficult and different circumstances.
Living in Australia, the one challenge I had was starting each day around 1 am. Fortunately, my want for learning got me up and ready to watch straight through. I didn’t want to skip a single minute for fear of missing out on ANY information. I have seen the value of staying up late and missing sleep. Congratulations on another successful Boot Camp!”
– Damien Pepper, DSP Electronics Pty Ltd

Here's What Boot Camp Attendees Are Saying
About Robin Robins And The Event
Testimonial From LinkedIn:
“We’ll Be Back Every Year!”
“One of the best breakouts at Boot Camp was the QBR breakout. We received so much valuable information from that single hour. We put it into practice immediately and picked up the AudIT software package that many had mentioned. Sitting down for QBRs and having the right tool helped us close a new piece of business within a week at $2900/month and $24,000 in project work. This more than paid for AudIT and Bootcamp in a single event. We’ll be back every year!”
– Chris Adams, CCA Technology
“After attending Robin Robins’s Boot Camp, the first take-away that we implemented resulted in closing a deal worth $2500/month in new MRR plus a $20,000+ project. Instant ROI.”
– Joe Korb, CCA Technology
“So Much Information And Motivation In A Few Days!”
“What an event! It's so much information and motivation packed in only a few days! Robin is amazing and I wonder if she sleeps?”
– Jill Eaton, Sweetwater Technology
“One Of The Most Inspiring Events Of My Life”
“I’m so happy that Aaron convinced me to join Accelerators and get those boot camp tickets. That was one of the most inspiring events of my life. Soooo good! I’ve been struggling trying to figure out what was the one thing that I learned that I can start doing right away. I don’t have that answer because there were so many things. But if I was forced to answer the question, I would just have to say “Get off your ass and just do it”! Start executing. And I will do just that.”
– Paul Monroe, ITechCare 24/7
“Boot Camp Inspired My Wife To Take An Active Part In Our Marketing!”
“Thank you for all the hard work that you and your team put into Boot Camp. It was awesome, and very much appreciated. My wife is also a fiery redhead with limited filters before her first cup of coffee or before 11:00 am. She just loved the presentations and as soon as we got home, she began watching all your videos and has decided to take an active part in our company marketing. I brought her to Boot Camp because I have been encouraging her for a long time to get involved in marketing. Thanks for inspiring her.”
– Larry Forsyth, Larry The Computer Guy
“Don’t Let This Pass You By!”
“If you own an MSP and you have never attended this event, don't let another one pass you by. Robin Robins and Technology Marketing Toolkit, Inc. have had an indescribable impact on me, my team, and my company. If you considered it for a second, sign up now before you change your mind!!”
– Chris Hoose, Choose Networks, Inc.
"Boot Camp Was A Wealth Of Knowledge!"
"We had 3 team members attend: owner, marketing manager and sales. Every one of us learned something from the event. It’s well-organized with fantastic speakers sharing a wealth of knowledge!"
– April Painter, Burk I.T.
"So Much Great Content We Put To Work As Soon As
We Got Home!"
"Boot Camp was great! We learned a lot like we always do when attending Robin’s events. We went back home and immediately began working on all of the valuable take-aways we got from each presenter."
– Adam Peterson, Real IT Solutions, Inc.
"Totally Worth The Trip From Australia"
"Travelling from Australia, there is always the question in the back of your mind “am I going to get value in time spent?” It is safe to say that the answer is ‘yes’ and I know that will continue. This year the biggest take away is ‘Traction.’ I had been struggling with trying to implement ‘Scaling Up’ and I believe that ‘Traction’ is positioned better for my size business. Our accountability group has agreed to implement over the next 3 months. It’s great to come away with real strategies and action items."
– Damien Pepper, DSP Electronics
"So Good, I Can’t Wait For Next Year!"
"Boot camp was awesome. I came with a list of things to accomplish and marked off every item. I'm already looking forward to next year!"
– Keith W. Horne Jr., Enterprise Backup, Inc.
"Great Speakers With Beneficial Content For Everyone"
"Great lineup of speakers; my techs were very impressed to see my picture with Kevin Mitnick! With varying roles and interests in attendance, the speakers were able to deliver quality content that benefitted everyone."
– Catherine Wendt, Syscon, Inc.
"This Event Gets Better And Better Every Time I Go!"
"Our growth has been great every year and we are disciplined using the Toolkit. I brought my sales manager and marketing director so they could see Robin in person. I think she is one of the smartest people I have ever met and I respect her because she does not just market, she gets our business running right first! I think any IT business owners who don't see value in attending this event have got to be crazy; It gets better every time I go!"
– Paul Riendeau, Southern New England Computer Services
"I’m Walking Away With A Ton Of Information!"
"The speakers never disappoint! Gino Wickman was awesome and while I have read and implemented part of his book, hearing him explain it just made it click. Interacting with vendors and other professionals like me is also a huge plus. I’m walking away with a ton of information and even if some of it I have heard before, the refresher is a huge motivator to dig in and do the work!"
– Christopher Bartosz, FVC Technologies, Inc.
"Every Year Brings Newer And Better Information"
"I appreciate that you are always exposing us to newer and better speakers, topics and ideas. This year hit on so many important aspects with presentations on security, sales and running a business. Keep planning future Bootcamps as good as this one!"
– Barbara Dawson, Kamind Cloud Solution Advisors
"Bootcamp Is By Far The Best Industry Event
I’ve Been To!"
"I’ve been to many technology conferences during the course of my career, but Boot Camp was by far the best! The knowledge shared, the quality of the presenters, the atmosphere and experience – just a great event overall. Congratulations Robin & Team!"
– Roy Richardson, Aurora InfoTech, LLC
"Boot Camp Was EPIC!"
"Another great Boot Camp! We realize it takes a team, and you are very fortunate to have the team in place that you do. Thank you for helping us GROW our business and for giving us this EPIC event each year to recharge our batteries!"
– Cathy Szymanski, Szymanski Consulting
"To Anyone Who Isn't Sure If It's Worth It, Plan To Be Here Next Year!"
"For years I had been indecisive about Boot Camp. I finally went this year and man, was I an idiot to not have gone before! I spent Wednesday afternoon talking to vendors, and the trip was successful before the first session even started. I found products to fill a couple of huge gaps in our offerings. We're not even done yet, and I'm sold. To anyone who isn't sure if it's worth it, plan to be here next year!"
– Mike Werth, Shamrock Network Technologies, LLC
"The Best Conference I Have Ever Been To"
"If you missed the recent Boot Camp, you missed a hell of a show. This was by far the best conference I have ever been to. My takeaways are too long to list but the personal productivity sessions helped me to get laser focused on growing my business. I fully plan to drive that car away myself!"
– Matt Rose, VM Squared
"Definitely Worth The Trip!"
"This year's Boot Camp was incredible! The production was first class, the speakers world class and the information was incredibly valuable. Definitely worth the trip! For someone who just purchased the Toolkit, I think coming to Boot Camp really helped me jump start my marketing and I'm very excited to get started implementing your strategies. I have been looking for you since the first day I was hired to help launch IPQuest into Alabama. I only wished I would have pursued your Toolkit after I heard you on the Entreleadership podcast 3 years ago! Thank you for everything!"
– Brandon Johnson, IPQuest
"It Was Worth Traveling 60 Hours To Attend!"
"Boot Camp was very inspiring and motivating! It makes a big difference attending the event in person to network and talk to other people with similar businesses. The event was wonderfully organized, and I can certainly say that it was worth traveling a total of 60 hours to attend the event
. The time off work also gave me a chance to think about what I needed to do in my business. Hopefully, this is where I get off my butt and start to work harder and make my marketing work better, and not get bogged down by the technical stuff. Thank you again for putting on a great event!"
– Vijay Nyayapati, Redbrick Technology Limited
"Every Time I Attend Boot Camp, I Come Back To My Company With Great Ideas And A Higher Intensity."
"Most professions have a place to go and learn how to better their offerings and services for their clients and to become more profitable. Technology Marketing Toolkit and Robin Robins provides all of this and much more at their Boot Camp. Better business techniques, marketing, accountability and more. Every time I attend Boot Camp, I come back to my company with great ideas and a higher intensity. So much so, that I brought my two business partners with me to this past year's Boot Camp to see what it was all about and each of them are showing interest in attending again. Thanks Robin!"
– Konrad Martin, CPA, CEO, Tech Advisors Inc.
"I Grew 25% To One Million Dollars With Very Little
"Attending Boot Camp and implementing Robin's marketing gave my company the confidence to grow and provide the family-friendly atmosphere to bring in team members and customers who share my same philosophy. This year, implementing Robin's marketing, I grew 25% to one million dollars with very little sales effort. We have gone from three to ten team members and are on track for more growth next year. I increased my MRR from about $10k a month to $34k/month in just gaining the confidence in selling MRR and the tools Robin provides. Thank You Robin for an amazing event!"
– Robert Benton, Network Technology Partners
"We Flew All The Way From Sydney, Australia, And It's Been Worth Every Penny"
"Coming to Boot Camp is no small thing for us since we have to fly all the way from Sydney, Australia, to attend, but it's worth it because of the tremendous amount of value we get from the sessions, the networking, the tools and templates, and business-advancing strategies. For anyone out there struggling I would say this: please enroll in Boot Camp! You can actually pick up the phone and talk to her. I've actually called and cried on the phone, and she's listened to me for more than an hour, all the way from Sydney. So she's absolutely awesome. And she actually feels the pain. She's been there, done that, so that's how we connected, and I still feel quite close and very lucky to have Robin on our team."
– Maria Padisetti, Digital Armour Corp.
"Definitely A Must-See Event"
"I'd strongly recommend attending Robin's Boot Camp because you'll be seriously missing out on some great information if you stay home. Not only will you learn marketing strategies specific to your business, but you'll learn valuable information on leadership, strategy, time management and more. This is definitely a must-see for any tech consulting firm."
– Lauren Groff, Groff Networks
"I Was Blown Away"
"To be honest, I was a little skeptical about spending the money and time to come to this event; I just wasn't sure if it would be worth it. But after the first day – oh my goodness – all I can say is that I was absolutely blown away! The people I've met who have helped me are just priceless. Several folks came up to me and said, 'You know, I've been where you are right now and here's what we've done to overcome that.' Making those connections and having those people to talk to and learn from to avoid making mistakes…it's just priceless! Plus, Robin's program is the cheapest college tuition that you will ever get – it's literally an MBA in marketing without having to go to college for 4 years. I have learned so much about pricing, selling and delivering managed services that I can immediately implement and profit from – and there's no other way to say it, other than her Boot Camp and materials are simply fantastic!"
– Dan McCoy, Micro Enterprises LLC.
"She Brings It All Together In One Place"
"I would recommend Robin's Boot Camp to anyone who wants to be really successful in growing their managed services operation because she brings it all together in one place: the marketing, the business experts and your peers, all in one place working simultaneously to give you everything you need to move your business forward as quickly as possible. The marketing she's given us has enabled us to go from $0 to a steady half a million dollars in recurring business that we can depend on. But one of the most valuable things you will gain is the networking and meeting with other people who are running similar businesses and dealing with the same problems, questions and challenges we are. Robin's members and clients are very generous and will gladly share everything with you."
– Jonathan Garber, Connections for Business
"It Has Given Me The Motivation And Inspiration I Need"
"Attending the Boot Camp has been absolutely great. For me, the most important takeaway I'm learning is the importance of not working in my business, but working on the business, and basically removing myself from being the technician just under the desk to being the business owner who takes responsibility for managing the company, marketing the company, bringing in new clients. The second great thing about the Boot Camp has been the motivation that it brings watching the other guys who have very similar stories to my own up there onstage, talking about the successes they've had; it gives both motivation and inspiration that, 'Hey, it's possible. It could happen to me too.'"
– John Gerdes, innovation5 technologies
"I Was Positively Glued To My Screen For 3 Days"
"Last year I signed up for the virtual Boot Camp and was positively glued to my computer screen for 3 days – I was actually getting hyper-upset because I couldn't see all the action going in the background! So instantly at the end of last year's Boot Camp I signed up for this year's session – and without a doubt it's worth every penny I paid, especially this year since I'm attending live. The networking is GREAT and everybody's so willing to share and help each other; it's just an amazing experience. It's funny because I'm a marketing major and never learned this level of marketing in school!"
– Beth Hill, TechSage Solutions
"The Networking And Sharing Of Best Practices
Can't Be Beat"
"I would recommend coming to the Boot Camp for a couple of reasons. One, it will change your outlook and bring a lot of excitement back into your business. We were really stuck in the mud before, having to create each marketing campaign on our own and moving at about 5 miles an hour. It's feeling like I've got a ton of bricks on my back and dragging things along. Now we've got energy, we've got excitement, and my clients are commenting on the fun we are having. We've got a lot of momentum now and business is actually FUN again. Two, you'll learn a LOT. The speakers are excellent and you'll leave with a renewed sense of confidence and direction. And finally, the networking and sharing of best practices can't be beat. You simply cannot find that anywhere else."
– Bill Hogan, Partners Plus
"Don't Hesitate – Just Go For It!"
"I would just like to add that anybody who is hesitating should just go for it. It's more than a marketing program; it's almost a philosophy, if you will, a way of life, a way of thinking about your business that I've never experienced before. And the people that you're introduced to and the peers that become a part of your team will change things in a way and on a mental level for me that I haven't found anywhere else."
– Sean Riggs, IT Definitive, LLC
"You Gave Me The Motivation To Tackle My Goals"
"Not sure if it's because this is my third Boot Camp, but this year I am not nearly as overwhelmed with 'stuff to do' as compared to previous years. Not sure if it was because there was less stuff to buy that piles on the work or if the content was that much better (I think both), but I feel much more focused and ready to tackle the next goals. There seemed to be more information presented that was so beneficial to things I am working on that it has helped lighten my load overall. I would welcome more sessions like that in the future – beyond the always needed butt-kicking Robin gives us. Thanks again!"
– Matt Jurcich, Invisik Corporation
"The Consistent, Quality Information You Provide Just Wows Me!"
"Thank you, Robin! After Boot Camp I found my strongest takeaway was how absolutely amazing you are. The content and the speakers were/are great, but when I think about what you consistently accomplish with a small staff, I am both awed and highly motivated... No Excuses, right. Thanks again!"
– Jim Krantz, Krantz Secure Technologies
"What An Eye-Opening Experience – Just The Kick
"Just wanted to thank you for the amazing marketing seminar that you and your folks put on in Nashville. For me it was an eye-opening event, and a rude awakening how I've let my husband's business slide into a small, complacent tech boutique. I'm now starting to 'clean house' from top to bottom and will be implementing many of your great marketing strategies. Again, thank you."
– Nadine Frush, Computer Studios, Inc.
"Not Coming To Boot Camp Would Have Been
A Huge Mistake!"
"I wanted to pass on my thanks to Robin and the whole TMT crew for running an awesome event. I very nearly didn't come due to challenges I am currently facing in my business (and my overseas travel), but I have absolutely no doubt I did the right thing. Being here and having the opportunity to talk to and share wisdom with successful entrepreneurs was worth more to me than anything. And considering the quality of the speakers, that says a lot!"
– David Rudduck, Insane Technologies
"Thank You And Your Team For Another
Fabulous Boot Camp"
"Hi, Robin! Joe and I would like to thank you and your team for another fabulous Boot Camp. Our fifth one. Each year we marvel at how much better each gets. We left last night after 2 1/2 days of our own post-Boot Camp where we banged out 4 great articles, a list of 67 action items to tackle, which will probably take a year to get through but is prioritized, with a new goal of Wow Factor under the client service delivery category. No, this isn't the first year we came out with a list. But an interesting thing happened. It's our longest list yet, but we had fun compiling it this time and we actually have a sense of total calm and confidence never previously achieved after your sessions. Two critical elements that were never there, and sabotaged our desire from going from good to great. Lots of Oprah aha moments. Lots of things said that seeped in over the sessions. Please tell Joe Polish that a couple of mild-mannered quiet Canadians were HIGHLY motivated by the inspirational words he uttered during his presentation. Take care, and thanks again!"
– Sandra and Joe Stoll, Technical Action Group
"Robin Is An Extraordinary Leader..."
"Robin is an extraordinary leader who knows how to deliver phenomenal results for her clients."
– Dr. Nido Qubein, President, High Point University
"Thanks For A Wonderful Experience..."
"Thanks for a wonderful experience. I came into Boot Camp with kind of a worn-down demeanor and left feeling really awesome and reinvigorated. Thanks to Robin, Jeff and the rest of the team for the usual ace job of presenting a fantastic show for all of us."
– Sherri LeBlanc, RKL & Associates
"The Speakers Were Riveting, The Topics
"I just wanted to thank everyone on Team Robin for a fantastic experience during the 2011 Boot Camp. I had signed up for the virtual session last year because my father's health was rapidly declining, and I couldn't make plans to be away from home. After he passed away, I attended the first couple of online sessions, but I didn't have my head in the game – everything at that time was clouded with grief. This year, I came to Nashville without any expectations, because I really didn't know what to expect. Well, the speakers were riveting, the topics thought-provoking, and the amount of work I am going to have to do to build my business has grown logarithmically. Nevertheless, this was an outstanding use of my time."
– Larry Kahm, Heliotropic Systems, Inc.
"Boot Camp Was Amazing!"
"Boot Camp was amazing. Not to sound cliché but some of the speakers were life-changing. I met so many great people, learned so many new things. It truly will have a huge impact on my business. I joined the Producers Club as well and know that is going to be huge."
– Frank Bravata, New Millennium Technology Services
