MPI Perspective - February 2008 - (Page 7)

p r e s i d e n t ’s m e s s a g e Power of Professionalism ▶ Relationships ▶ Shaping the Future Your MPINCC Board of Directors selected the theme “Power of Professionalism” as a focus for the year. It all comes together in February 2008 as we celebrate the 20 th Annual MPINCC Trade Show themed “Shaping the Future.” This Trade Show, beyond all other events, opens a wide door for business and career opportunities. What better way to prepare for the Trade Show than to launch Perspective with a theme that focuses on relationships! Our always successful Trade Show offers a wealth of educational and networking opportunities. The opening keynote speaker features Dr. Jeffrey Magee, who has been called one of the leading “Leadership & Marketing Strategists” of today. By age 24, he was recognized by a Fortune 500 company as their top salesman in the nation, while at the same time, becoming the youngest Certified Sales Instructor in the world for the Dale Carnegie Sales Course. The London Business Gazette has hailed Jeff as an “American Business Guru.” But perhaps more important than Magee’s credentials and accomplishments, are the ideas and insights he will deliver to MPINCC members that we can immediately use to improve our own personal performance. Other presenters include well known speaker and author Hattie Hill; John Feather, whose graphic innovations have been featured in the movie “Lord of the Rings;” Mark Roysner, who helped create the standards for contract negotiations; and Julie Burford, Assistant General Manager of Moscone West, who will show us how to implement green strategies. The day will include plenty of opportunities to network with the more than 1,500 industry professionals who are expected to attend. And we’ll wrap up the day with another opportunity for you to build relationships during the wine reception. I hope you will join me at the show to build relationships, shape your own future and experience the power of professionalism. ● By Sharon Marsh, CMP, CMM This Trade Show, beyond all other events, opens a wide door for business and career opportunities. What better way to prepare for the Trade Show than to launch Perspective with a theme that focuses on relationships! MPINCCperspective | VOL. 26, NO. 4 | 7
