Symantec recruits Dragon to advise UK resellers

Simon Quicke

Symantec's small business focused partners are being given a novel chance to get some advice from a former Dragon's Den star.

The vendor is offering its small business specialist resellers the chance to win a mentoring session with James Caan, with deals registered on the small business margin builder tool by September eligible for the free prize draw.

Caan is a MicroScope reader who recently commented on the importance of securing small businesses.

"Sound industry knowledge is essential to business development, so no matter what stage the winner is at, I look forward to being able to use my experience and offer my advice," said Caan.

The need for business advice is something that resellers have traditionally sought from their channel partners in distribution and vendors.

Ross Walker, director of small business at Symantec UK, said that this year could be the year for the smaller firm to grow.
