Succeeding in an Increasingly Competitive Environment

Success in business derives from a combination of key factors and conditions. As the North American fluid power industry recently emerged from the effects of the Great Recession, many of the market conditions it relied on proved advantageous, but challenging signals are again gathering on the horizon. Success over the next few years will depend less on favorable economic conditions, and more on factors like effective leadership, innovation, employee retention and empowerment, and productive channel partnerships focused on the needs of the customer. These will be the tools of success in an increasingly competitive environment.

NFPA has gathered an impressive slate of speakers at its 2013 Annual Conference to help executives and professionals explore these core issues. Featured speakers include:

  • Innovation Economics:  The Race for Global Advantage, Rob Atkinson, founder and President of the Innovation Technology & Innovation Foundation
  • Guiding Principles of Employee Retention—Simplicity, Speed & Focus, An NFPA Future Leaders Network Presentation, Jeff Musi, Sales Manager-Value Added Group and SBQ Products, Gerdau Special Steel North America, and Mark Gilk, Director, Americas Distribution Sales, Eaton Corporation
  • WIN-WIN-WIN Channel Systems:  Turning Landmines into Competitive Advantages, Richard Kolsky, Lecturer, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University
  • Everyone Is a CEO:  Empower Your Staff, Billy Ray Taylor, Director of Commercial Manufacturing, Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company

Conference details can be found here.  More details will be added in the coming weeks, but if you know you will attend NFPA's signature leadership conference, why not make your arrangements today?
