“The Quick and The Dead”

Guest Speaker: Charles M. Cohon, CPMR

Certified Association Executive (CAE)

CEO and President of the Manufacturers’ Agents National Association

If you are a rep, there is a fork in the road coming up fast. Pick the right fork, and the best manufacturers will be lined up to give you their lines. Pick the wrong fork, and you’re dead. No succession plan? You’re dead. No communication plan for your principals? You’re dead. No website? You’re dead. It’s not too late to pick the right fork! This presentation will cover what reps have to do to thrive in 2020 and beyond. Unless you’d rather just be dead.
