Annual Conference Track Preview: Managing Change

By Alex Batty, MHI Marketing Communications Coordinator | @mhi_alex

We’re once again featuring one of the education tracks that will be held at our Annual Conference. This is part four of a six part series (read the first part here). The sessions have two available tracks for each topic – a “class track” and a “lab track”. You can choose to attend only one session or grab both for added depth.

The six topics this year are:
U.S. Roadmap for Material Handling & Logistics
Supply Chain Workforce
Material Handling and Supply Chain Technology
Managing Change
Marketing in the Supply Chain Industry

This week we’re focusing on Managing Change. Tuesday afternoon will help participants discover how leading organizations in the industry and managing the accelerated change that has become a part of our society and economy. Sessions will focus on learning how to be more open to change and how to increase agility in the environment of relentless competition.

The class session will be presented by Hunter Hill, President of Tommy Newberry Coaching and will provide information on how to manage change and why it is so critical as the industry continues to grow.

The later lab session will be facilitated by Deborah Morrison, Executive Director of Consulting Services at LaMarsh, to explore these techniques for coping with change.
