The 123rd IARW-WFLO Convention & Expo, being held from April 26-30, 2014 in San Diego CA, is presenting dynamic programming to empower temperature-controlled logistics industry members to attract, train, and retain top talent.
As the talent outlook for the industry changes, the industry must adapt by creating innovative solutions to talent management. The convention is serving as a forum for mining these solutions through multiple education sessions, general session keynote speakers, and panel discussions.
The “Ask a Gen Y” Panel at the WFLO Learning Lounge on April 29 will give attendees the opportunity to submit questions that will be answered live by a panel of Generation Y/Millennial students and young professionals in supply chain logistics. Panelists include Gina Stavrakakis, international MBA student, University of San Diego; Alex Riolo, finance and supply chain management student, University of San Diego; and Scott Barbour, QSR team manager, Americold Australia. The panel’s goal is to connect future leaders in the temperature-controlled logistics industry with prospective employers, as well as to encourage a dialogue between generations.
Barbour, the 2013 Frank Vale Award Winner, will also lead a session during the Learning Lounge entitled, “Engaging the Future Leaders in the Cold Storage Industry.” He will share key insights into what attracts and motivates young professionals.
Mark Sato, a master practitioner at The Wiseman Group and the closing general session keynote speaker, will share with attendees how to become multipliers of talent within their own organizations. Sato’s keynote is based on the content of the Wall Street Journal Bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter.
The Convention & Expo is also featuring additional educational sessions that will focus on mentoring next-generation leaders, proactive labor strategies, and pre-employment screening of personnel.
