Last week Ryson attended the 2016 PMMI Executive Leadership Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona. The PMMI event was packed with very useful and interesting topics from a look at the future, current economical forecasts and several sessions on different business challenges. We also heard from our customers and how to best integrate the millennial generation into our organizations.
The conference also had plenty of networking opportunities. Our very popular networking event was the “spirit to serve“, where the participants were divided into teams to assemble wheel chairs which would be donated to the Wounded Warriors Project. It was a very rewarding event and a great team building exercise.
Ryson is very active in the PMMI organization. Our President, Ole Rygh also serves on the PMMI board of directors and the show committee. Dave Wineman, our Executive Vice President serves on the Industry Relations Committee.
