I will start conducting one-day seminars in larger cities in North America this fall. The working title: “Analytics for Defending Against, Partnering, and Out-Niching Amazon”.
The content is radical. Download the seminar summary for the full story, including:
- An “Overview”
- Who should attend and what you’ll learn and (hopefully) act on
- How your distributor affiliation groups, trade associations, buying groups, ERP vendors – can become co-sponsors to earn their constituents a discount from an already affordable fee
- A summary of my AMZ-oriented blogs to spark team discussions
Get the summary here:
Already booked due to local co-sponsor support:
- St. Louis on 10/16 with St. Louis University’s Center for Supply Chain Management as a co-sponsor and host for the presentation.
- Montreal on 11/5
- Toronto on 11/7
Other Prospective Cities: Chicago, Boston, NYC/N. NJ, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, LA, San Francisco, Seattle/Tacoma. And, wherever else enough bottom-up interest may arise.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- Email me your interest. On a 1 to 5 scale: 1 is “No Way. AMZ is a fad.”; 3 “Maybe” and 5 “Will be there”.
- If not a “5”, any changes to boost interest to assure your attendance?
- Alert your affiliation group about being a co-sponsor. I will be contacting many directly too.
- If you are in one of the target cities, can you suggest a best logistical place to run an 8am to 4pm seminar?
- If you would like the seminar to run in your unlisted city (or sponsor your own private seminar), be in touch to brainstorm on making that possible.
- I’m also amenable to doing one-hour, highlights, free webinars for affiliation groups.
The St. Louis University (SLU) Model In Other Cities?
From previous experiments at SLU, the Supply Chain Center discovered that by hosting this seminar:
- Their MBA students can attend all or part of the seminar for free and network with distributors for consulting/employment opportunities.
- Attending companies get exposed to the Center’s offerings.
- The Center can invite their own community supporters for a 50% discount (as a co-sponsor): a good outreach benefit.
If any readers have a hometown MBA/Supply Chain, university connection that could be a co-sponsor like SLU, please request an e-introduction of your SC Head to SLU’s Center Head: Cindy Mebruer.
Here’s hoping I’ll see you this fall and into next year for a provocative educational experience!
