The Industry "Disruptors"...How Do They Affect You?

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect of on all the things we are thankful for.
I'm thankful for my family, my health, my business, and the opportunity to have a positive impact on the community around me.
Recently, I was blessed to be able to attend the ASI Power Summit, which is a gathering of industry leaders. 

I've also been privileged to attend several PPAI Leadership Conferences. The time spent at events like these is always productive. ASI put together a thought provoking slate of presentations for this Power Summit.

What Compliance is All About

When you think about it, that's what we all should be, really - brand protectors. If you're familiar with our work at Quality Certification Alliance, you're likely expecting something in this space about safe and compliant promotional products. I'm looking forward to focusing here each month on the challenges of sourcing the right products for end-user clients who are becoming increasingly risk-aware, thanks to the many stories of product failure in the mainstream media.
