A Scheduling Note From The Content Guy

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm taking the last few days of summer off. MNB will be on hiatus until the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, September 5, when we'll return with all new stories and commentaries.

Between now and then, the MNB archives will, of course, be open.

Thanks, as always, for your patience … I hope you also have a chance to enjoy the waning days of summer. I know what I’ll be doing. (See photo.)

Slàinte!

From Samuel J. Associates...

THE SKY ISN'T FALLING. NOT FOR THOSE WITH THE RIGHT PRIORITIES.

E-commerce. Mergers & Acquisitions. New Competitors. Low Unemployment. Cultural Uncertainties.

They all add up to High Anxiety. And it is only going to get worse.

But that doesn't mean the sky is falling. There's no reason for mass hysteria.

It does mean that success will come to companies and leaders with the right priorities - who understand the importance of innovation, relevance and disruption, and who understand that the right people make all the difference between success and failure.

At Samuel J., our value never has been greater, because we understand the connection between great talent and innovative businesses.

And yet, our essential value proposition hasn't changed over the years. We are uniquely positioned - because of our superb network and key business insights - to put together people and organizations in a way that builds expertise, cultivates leadership, and turns business challenges into business opportunities.

At Samuel J, we know how to do it in a timely fashion and exceeds our clients' high expectations. And we have the track record to prove it.

"GOOD IS NOT GOOD WHEN BETTER IS EXPECTED"

In this fast-paced, interactive and provocative presentation, MNB's Kevin Coupe challenges audiences to see Main Street through a constantly evolving technological, demographic, competitive and cultural prism.  These issues all combine to create an environment in which traditional thinking, fundamental execution, and just-good-enough strategies and tactics likely will pave a path to irrelevance;  Coupe lays out a road map for the future that focuses on differential advantages and disruptive mindsets, using real-world examples that can be adopted and executed by enterprising and innovative leaders.

"Kevin inspired our management team with his insights about the food industry and his enthusiasm. We've had the best come in to address our group, and Kevin Coupe was rated right up there.  He had our team on the edge of their chairs!" - Stew Leonard, Jr., CEO, Stew Leonard's

Constantly updated to reflect the news stories covered and commented upon daily by MorningNewsBeat, and seasoned with an irreverent sense of humor and disdain for sacred cows honed by Coupe’s 30+ years of writing and reporting about the best in the business, "Good Is Not Good When Better Is Expected" will get your meeting attendees not just thinking, but asking the serious questions about business and consumers that serious times demand.

Want to make your next event unique, engaging, illuminating and entertaining?  Start here: KevinCoupe.com. Or call Kevin at 203-662-0100.
