A Scheduling Note From The Content Guy

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm taking a couple of weeks off…

MNB is on hiatus for a total of 10 editions, until Monday, July 24. (If something major happens, and I have access to my laptop, I'll return.)

I'm in the Pacific Northwest, and I'll be spending the time with Mrs. Content Guy - biking, hiking, wine tasting, beer drinking, and enjoying some great food.

I'll also be teaching at Portland State during the MNB hiatus, as well as going to the (sold out!) Organic Produce Summit, where I'll be moderating a couple of panels. (If you're there, come say hi.)

Between now and my return the MNB archives will, of course, be open. And, I may post the occasional note or picture on Facebook or Instagram if the spirit moves me …

Thanks…I hope you'll also get some time this summer to recharge your batteries.

And, as always…

Fins Up!

From Samuel J. Associates...

Your Best Weapon To Fight In The Revolution.

People.

Great people.

It's that simple. And that complex.

The world of retail changes every day. Sometimes incredibly fast and with incredible significance, as when the world's biggest e-commerce company buys the world's premier organic food retailer ... a move that potentially creates enormous pressure on competitors.

There is no time to dither, no room to equivocate.

The industry's best companies need people with a desire to lead, the ability to envision the implications of a changing business climate, and the inclination to move quickly to address these new challenges.

In a world where automation and robots seem to gain greater relevance with every passing day, Samuel J. Associates knows that the best people - the right people - are the ultimate differential advantage to companies looking to be relevant, nimble and vibrant, with sustainable business models.

Samuel J. knows those people. Samuel J Associates knows those companies. We put them together, we help businesses move the needle, 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.
