NAPL’s 2010 Top Management Conference to Change with the Times
• A Best Practices panel that will be sharing lessons learned and applied by some of the best-managed companies in the industry – complete with revealing Q&A opportunities.
• NAPL Management Plus, Customer Plus and Marketing Plus awards that will showcase some of the most innovative and highly respected companies in the industry, and their approaches to excellence.
• Coverage of hot topics such as growth by acquisition, a strategy for keeping companies intact during harsh times.
• Launch of the NAPL NexGen Leaders Program, a new peer group of up-and-coming executives within the NAPL membership.
The NexGen Leaders Program is a response to the perfect storm of changes taking place in the industry. “There are lots of family-owned businesses in our industry, and companies with future C-level talent that are undergoing extreme transitions in a very condensed period of time. The economy has thrust severe pressure on an older generation that had begun to make plans to retire, but now finds the need to lead the company back to solid ground; and a younger generation that faces taking the helm and learning to manage under the most turbulent business conditions,” explained Woods. “The NexGen program will fill a void for those in their 20s and 30s who don’t have an established peer group or a way to receive expert mentoring outside of their family or organizational circles. We’re thrilled to be kicking off this resource at TMC 2010.”
