Conference Summary

Thanks to the 146 attendees who joined us in Austin, Texas, last weekend for the Management Update Conference – they not only experienced a great content-rich program but loads of BBQ brisket and warm Texas sunshine.  The goal of the conference is to get “updated” on topics that pique your interest to learn more.  Lisa Ryan motivated everyone to build a rockin’ culture; Connor Lokar laid out the economic facts for the coming year; we learned how to handle toxic employees; and Dr. Michael Roizen got everyone’s attention by sharing how to change your lifestyle and re-set your age.

Our special thanks to the 22 sponsors of the conference and the Management Update Committee who put together yet another successful program.
