    Question Which Education Track Interests You the Most?

    Warm greetings to all of our confirmed and potential guests at the ISS World Expo in Las Vegas, March 1-3, 2010. I'm taking a look at the education tracks this morning and wondering which ones are appealing to the audience most at this time. Here are your options (click on the links for detailed descriptions of the sessions):

    1. Facility Marketing & Sales
    2. Construction, Development and Green Initiatives
    3. Finance, Insurance & Legal Issues
    4. Day-to-Day Facility Management

    Vote in the poll and post your feedback below.

    One last tip: You might want to check out the discount codes thread if you're looking at registration packages.

    Default Heckler Alert!

    Someone has got to get this conversation going so I'll start.

    I'm looking forward to Derek tearing us (me) up to shreds for our social media mistakes & helping us learn how to use it to reach potential customers. I'm glad to be of service as an example of how NOT to do things, as long as Derek shows me how to do it right.

    And Tom Litton's seminar should be good. He's full of some interesting ideas and outside of the box concepts. I know as we have the pleasure of seeing him at seminars here in California a couple times a year, and I've picked up a couple good ideas from him.

    AND to Mr. John Roser's seminar on how to create a motivated manager! I think he'll have some tricks up his sleeve we'll all have fun with to motivate any employee.

    A must attend is the fun session hosted by Misters Jim & Mel. That was a hoot last time!

    Oh and the roundtables!! Remodeling an office should be interesting.

    Then onto the topics we need to know about, insurance, operations, legalities etc. Sometimes not as much fun in regards to the topics, but something we all need to know about. The speakers selected for these topics are all very knowledgeable and we're lucky to have them willing to share with us.

    Thankfully, at least for now I'm out of the construction/development phase so I'll probably skip most of those this time around. No disrespect to the presenters, just not a high priority need to know at this point in time.

    With four dozen people presenting various topics, like me there should be something or many somethings there for everyone!

    I really wanted to vote twice - once for Day to Day and once for marketing as both of these areas are of interest to me.

    This is where it's handy to have more then one person from you facility attending as you can each go to different sessions and learn twice as much.

    That's the secret for him getting into the SST booth.

    Linda,

    I'll have Alex Koupal (Alex_D) on the forum send you an e-mail. She's the education coordinator for ISS. Is that MSN address correct?
