Bill Gilmer of Wordsprint talks about NAPL's Top Management Conference
Published on February 22, 2010
I’m Bill Gimble with Word Sprint. We’re a small mailing and printing company in Southwest Virginia. All right, I’ve been to Top Management every year for the last, I don’t know how many, 1993. The first one was in Arizona and wouldn’t ever miss it.
I think it’s not just the peer networking, it’s not just the seminars, it’s something bigger going on. It’s what Bill Woods talks about when he talks about what only the CEO or what only the President can do for a company, which is link the external world with the internal world. That’s what TMC let’s you do. It gives me a chance to really link with the outside world in our industry and even beyond in a way that I can meaningfully interpolate that back into the plant when I get back.
So TMC is just an excellent venue for broadening your horizons.
