Notable Speakers to Share Tools for Success with AV Contractors
Dec 15, 2010 10:44 AM
Commercial electronic systems contractors/integrators will get the tools and resources they need to stay afloat during this continued turbulent economy at NSCA’s 2011 Business & Leadership Conference, Feb. 17-19, 2011, in San Diego.
This year’s event features speakers who will inspire attendees to challenge themselves, their procedures and their profits. Taking advantage of the southern California location, NSCA will host a session at Miramar Naval Base, where conference attendees will learn firsthand how to apply military strategies in a combat environment for business success. Fighter pilot Patrick “Lips” Houlahan will lead the session, “Flawless Execution: Plan. Brief. Execute. Debrief. = Win!”
Sharing challenges and solutions with peers is the most popular benefit of this event. Conference alumnus Jim Hendrix of Lone Star Communications, Inc. and Leslie Shiner of The ShinerGroup will share responsibilities for their session, “Brass Tacks and Bare Knuckles.” In this course, attendees will learn how to create a meaningful dashboard specific to their company and determine valuable metrics to focus on and measure for company survival, success and growth.
“During this time of economic volatility, it is more important than ever for companies to be aware of their financial, operational, resource and sales issues as timely as possible,” Hendrix said. “Sharing and discussing ideas with my peers to solve these challenges is what makes this conference a must-attend for integrators.”
Systems integrators are constantly seeking information to help them advance their business’s mission, goals, and revenue. Additional speakers and sessions for the 2011 event include:
