30 Years/ 30 Days Why I am Attending NAPS Conference

About 30 years ago I discovered the staffing industry or as it was called then “the placement business”. Looking back it was one of the best days of my life, with the exception of my wedding day (my wife always reads these entries).

For the past 30 years I have enjoyed the fruits of this business, the challenges, the “thanks” from clients, job seekers and wonderful employees. Rarely will a day pass that I don’t thank god for guiding me into this wonderful profession.

For the past 20 years I have attended every NAPS conference through good and bad times. Each year I’ve walked away with different ideas, most I forget (senior moment), but always returned with immediate and future techniques that improved my business.

Our company has survived numerous recessions over the past quarter century and grew during this most recent staffing depression. How did we survive and thrive? I must give credit to NAPS Conferences. During these 3-day annual events I have met many great colleagues, been in the presents of master teachers, visited informative vendors, received sensible legal advice and mixed in a lot of fun. These exchanges as student, peer and teacher have given our organization invaluable lessons on closing, marketing, management, trend analysis and operation strategies.

So in less than 30 days the NAPS Conference begins. The price is reasonable $399, the best education value in the industry. However the true cost of attending these 3 days is your time away from your business. But as someone who is returning for the 21st time (slow learner) I know that the real “loss” would be to miss this opportunity to increase my understanding and guaranteed return in future business. So please consider joining this staffing event.

If you are one of the 600 already registered, you know what I am talking about. If you are one of the many sole proprietors, business owners, managers or recruiters who are not yet registered click here. With 30 Speakers, 3 Keynotes, Value-Add sessions (featuring Barb Bruno and Danny Cahill) exhibitors, legal session and 35 best practice tables I know you will walk away with tangible and intangibles that will help your business grow and prosper over the next 30 Years.

May the staffing gods be with you.
