Some 300 of the country’s top distributors and contractors are in attendance at the Johnson Control ABCS Meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 3-day event started off with an exciting Kickoff Celebration and General Session, followed by three excellent presentations. These important and insightful business presentations gave attendees the most up-to-date and significant information on: The Social Media Buzz: How to use it to impact your business; The Next Generation of the Global Workforce: A study of GEN Y; and North American Economic Forecast & Trend Analysis by Guest Speaker: Andrew Duguay, Senior Analyst of ITR Economics.
During the evening Awards Dinner Johnson Controls recognized their top distributor and contractor performers for 2012 and 2013. The highlight of the evening was the Keynote Speaker, Rocky Bleier, a four-time Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rocky Bleier delivered a motivating and entertaining, and sometimes, heart-rending account of his life experiences and “Fighting Back” (Book and Movie released 1975) and the grand analogy of the game of football and business, leadership and the responsibility for the choices we make.
