In these turbulent economic times in which we operate our businesses, it’s critical to get the very best from our people—the most important asset in our companies. Sometimes this involves radical change or just a few minor adjustments. Diagnosing the problems that exist is the first step in the process.
Attending PMPA’s Management Update Conference is the perfect way for your team to uncover new strategies to address your company’s internal weaknesses and find solutions to keep your organization moving forward. The following education sessions will help chart a course for your company in 2012:
“Strategies for a Volatile and Unpredictable Economy”
“Communicating with Confidence and Credibility”
“Understanding Your Communication Style”
“Competent is NOT an Option”
“Developing Good Managers into Great Leaders”
“Increase Your Company’s Online Visibility with Google SEO”
“SEAL Team Mission Planning”
“Top Ten Tools for Financing Businesses”
“CEO Toolbox—Top Ten Tools”
“Negotiating from the Buyer’s Perspective/Learn the Strategies Your Customers Employ to Negotiate with You”
“What Does Your ‘Silent Partner’ (a.k.a. the Federal Government) Have Planned for You in 2012?”
John Guzik and Omar Nashashibi
Beyond these education sessions, you’ll have multiple networking opportunities to meet with owners and managers from the industry’s leading manufacturers. One of the major benefits of attending the conference is the time available during breaks and meals to spend with your peers. That’s time to spend exchanging ideas and learning new ways of addressing the problems that plague your business.
Come to San Diego for the weekend. The conference begins on Thursday evening, February 23, with a welcome reception and ends on Sunday, February 26, at 10 a.m. following the final two business sessions.
Because the majority of the conference takes place over the weekend, the time you spend away from your business is limited. Bring your spouse, too. PMPA offers a special spouse package, available at a nominal fee.
Set aside this one weekend from your busy schedule and be part of something special at PMPA’s Management Update 2012. This is one business decision this year you’ll make with zero regrets.
The PMPA Management Update Conference is open to both member and non-member companies. For more information on this annual event, including speakers, hotel accommodations, meeting registration and more, visit the conference website at: pmpa.org/meetings/update/.
