Boost profits, improve company performance, and navigate the turbulent economy at NSCA's 2009 Business & Leadership Conference, sponsored by InfoComm International. This year's event includes several keynote speakers who will discuss a variety of subjects important to the commercial-electronic-systems industry.

Kevin Carroll will bring his experience and encourage attendees to harness the power of sport and play to enrich their work life, enhance innovation, and improve team dynamics and interpersonal communication. His best-selling book, The Red Rubber Ball, received BusinessWeek's Champion in Innovation award.

John and Jeanne Stiernberg of Stiernberg Consulting have delivered many of NSCA's influential and useful quarterly Market Intelligence Briefing reports. They will detail how to turn these valuable member resources into market profitability programs and uncover new ways to create profit during the conference.

Bob Prosen from the Prosen Center for Business Achievement will use a panel discussion to help attendees learn from industry peers. In addition to topics led by the audience, the group will cover effective tactics and resources for these uncertain times, as well as creative new tools to create a sustainable, lucrative organization for years to come.

Sponsors of the event include Mitek Communications Group (host sponsor), SCN (co-host and media sponsor); Bosch Communication Systems, Dove Net (The Project System); FSR; Herman Procurement & Logistics; Rauland-Borg; Shure; Biamp Systems; and West Penn Wire.

The NSCA Business & Leadership Conference will be held Feb. 26-28, 2009, at the Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix. To learn more or register, visit www.nsca.org/blc or call (800) 446-6722. Conference fees are $899 before Nov. 28 and $1,049 thereafter up to the day of the event itself.
