A Changed Life ... My Personal Journey in This Industry
There has been some discussion through the years as to the value of these designations. Do they translate into sales in the real world? People have asked whether our clients really care. My answer would be that it really doesn't matter. In some cases these titles may give you a competitive advantage and in others maybe not. The real benefit is to you. You will be able to better serve your clients with the knowledge you have received talking these classes. In today's marketplace that edge makes the time you put into education a worthwhile investment.
As January approaches, you have some great opportunities to network and build on your education foundation. In Orlando, ASI will offer a full state of classes that will include a lively keynote session featuring a Bill O'Reilly and Carville Keynote. Now that should be interesting! Their always fun Gala Celebration will be held at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Other ASI Shows will follow in Dallas, San Diego, New York and Chicago. The ASI Shows provide an environment conducive for suppliers and distributors to spend quality, one-on-one time together.
The PPAI Expo is the promotional products industry's largest and longest running trade show dedicated to bringing distributors and suppliers together. New products, outstanding education, effective networking and creative business-building ideas are all experienced every January in Las Vegas.
