The countdown to BrandSource’s first Summit & Expo of 2017 has officially begun as members eagerly await the 3-day event, beginning on March 5th at the Orlando Marriott World Center in Orlando, Florida. The itinerary is packed with a whole host of educational seminars, informative lectures, booth exhibits, and product training sessions designed to keep members informed about the latest industry technologies and the most advanced sales techniques. Members are also invited to a variety of fun social activities such as the 5K Light the Night Glow Run with all proceeds supporting Disabled American Veterans and the Annual Butch DuBose Charity Golf Tournament.
Since BrandSource prides itself on offering its members the tools to improve their businesses and increase their revenues, the Summit’s primary focus has always been education. For this reason, a multitude of helpful seminars are included on the itinerary this year. With such titles as “Creating a High Performance Culture” by Joe Higgins, “Winning Moments That Matter” by Andrew Leonard from Google, Inc., and “Driving Business Innovation and Improvement” by Jeff Caldwell, there is no shortage of interesting topics to inspire members.
The lineup of guest speakers on March 7th is particular notable in that it will feature addresses by BrandSource CEO Jim Ristow, as well as a keynote from legendary football coach Steve Spurrier. Spurrier, who led the University of Florida Gators to a national championship in 1996, is scheduled to give a speech entitled “Doing Things That Have Never Been Done Before.” The former Heisman Trophy winner and seven-time Southeastern Conference Coach of the Year is a welcomed addition to BrandSource’s impressive array of prominent guest speakers.
