From the Office…

Record attendance for 2019 Fall Sales Training!

I’m sitting in the office after last week’s sales training…feeling exhausted yet rejuvenated by the experience.  Three cities in three days, over 690 miles, and over 70 attended…yes, there is a reason for exhaustion, but oh so worth it!

In case you missed it, here are the comments:

“Jacy was a great speaker, informational!”

“Tim’s audit information and how to use it…GREAT!”

“Very engaging with us, lots of learning. Thank you!”

“Very helpful to hear other sales people share ideas… helps us all grow!”

“Morning session was something new for seasoned salespeople. Thought-provoking.”

“Tim is always excellent and invaluable round table discussion was good.”

As Lisa mentioned in her column about Jacy and finding our core values, it’s not so surprising that one of my values is “connection” (along with fun, love, family and adventure). Everyday, that is what Vickie and I do at our MFCP office… connect with you, our members. We love connecting with you and strive everyday to promote the industry we are passionate about…print and free papers.

Along with Jacy, a HUGE thank you goes out to Tim Bingaman. He brought home the point of “PRINT IS NOT DEAD!” and he provided the stats to prove this. If you are dealing with a difficult customer, call Tim. He’ll give you the ammunition with numbers and statistics to turn your customer into a print believer.

As we wrap up this last training, we are setting our sights to our 65th MFCP Anniversary! While in Des Moines, President Lisa and I toured the Renaissance Des Moines Savery Hotel. Oh my! Be ready to have your socks knocked off! It is a beautiful venue, perfect for our Spring Conference scheduled for March 5-7, 2020. Plans are underway to make this the biggest conference, with lots of valuable sessions and freebies.

Lastly, please call me if you know of any free publications that could benefit from belonging to MFCP and along with that, do you know of any business partners that would be interested in being an Associate Member of MFCP? It’s a great opportunity for them to connect with our association at the conference. Give me their contact information and I will follow up.

Have a safe harvest and watch for next month’s Paper Clips for exciting details on upcoming events! Stay tuned…the best is yet to come!

Best Regards, Kelly
