SESSION WM109

Managing Change in a Constantly Changing World

Change happens all around us. Understanding how to manage change within your organization can help you and your teams to successfully overcome the challenges of transition. This session will engage participants in interactive discussion to walk through change you may be facing today and tomorrow. Instructor: Alison Hall, Pitney Bowes Presort Services.

Monday, April 10, 2017, Round Two, 3:15-4:15pm


SESSION WM201

Social Media vs. Traditional Mail

We all use social media, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and others. How are you using social media to your advantage. It is documented that the average user of social media spends over 2 hours per day on hand held devices (phones and tablets). In fact, for some, the only source of news and information is now social media. What changes are you making to reach these customers? Instructor: David Day, EDP, D3 Advisors.

Tuesday, April 11, 2017, Round Seven, 4:45-5:45pm


SESSION WM205

Managing a Multi-Generational Workforce

We all deal with multiple generations in the workforce. Today’s logistics industry (printing, mailing and shipping) is made up of members of every generation, each of whom are influenced and empowered by different motives and different styles of management. In some cases the generations use the English language in different ways. Even from a peer-to-peer perspective, working with various generations poses many challenges. Join this fun, open discussion on understanding the generations and how to manage and operate effectively in the new millennium of today’s workforce. Instructors: Marjorie Mitchell, CMDSM, and Jud Thurman, CMDSM/CMDSS.

Tuesday, April 11, 2017, Round Five, 2:15-3:15pm


SESSION WM301

Women in Management Panel Discussion

Join the leading women in management positions as they discuss the unique challenges women face in today’s workforce. First offered in the early 1990’s when women were just reaching the glass ceiling, this presentation is a popular networking venue as well as an excellent opportunity for you will meet and hear from leading women in mail management. Panel discussion led by Barbara Fahy, MDC, President, MSMA.
