Hassan Igram talks about the importance of networking at industry events
Published on April 8, 2010
My name is Hassan Igram. I'm the CEO and President of Cedar Graphics and it's been awhile since I've been at an NAPL conference so I thought it's probably time to come by and catch up and see what's going on and maybe do a little networking, but more importantly I think in today's environment especially, economic conditions the way they are, it would be a good idea to try to at least some ideas that may help me innovate my business to some degree.
So far, so good. This is the first day and instead of doing the normal sales track thing that I normally do, I thought maybe I'd go to one of the seminars about metrics measuring business performance, especially in comparison to the profit leaders. So I thought that was pretty interesting. I enjoyed that. Sometimes you just need to pick up one or two tips to get an idea of what you can take back and implement; if you try to absorb too much sometimes it can be counterproductive. So that's kind of what my focus is today: try to pick up a tidbit here or there.
