CEDIA Management Conference Highlights
CEDIA held its annual Management Conference over the weekend in San Diego. Here is some of what took place:
Presenter Rick Drumm, “Too often we work around the problem. We're not focussed on improvement, because we're trying to get the job done.”
The Women in CE hold an impromptu meeting.
CEDIA CEO Utz Baldwin: “CEDIA Management Conference is such a great opportunity to receive so much valuable information and education. Take it home and put it to use."
SpeakerCraft's Jeremy Burkhardt: “Laughter creates an ideal setup for memory retention. We're six times more likely to remember something with laughter.”
Judson Laipply: “I'm here to get you to laugh and think. I want you to pause and let go of what you cannot control so you can focus on the choices you have to grow your business.”
Conference attendees soak up the information.
Crestron's Jeff Singer: “We all work hard everyday, every one of us is very busy, but if you do not take the time to step back and reaccess your business, you may not have a business.”
Tim Costello: ““Our markets are changing faster than any other time in the history of business.”
