A Scheduling Note From The Content Guy

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm taking this week off. MNB will be on hiatus until the day after Labor Day, Tuesday, September 6, when we'll return with all new stories and commentaries. Between now and then, the MNB archives will, of course, be open.

Thanks, as always, for your patience … I hope you enjoy the last few days of summer. As for me, there are miles to be jogged and biked, books to be read, and maybe a few adult beverages to be consumed.

Slàinte!

"Kevin inspired our Stew Leonard's management team with his insights about the food industry and his enthusiasm. We've had the best come in to address our group, and Kevin Coupe was rated right up there.  He had our team on the edge of their chairs!"
- Stew Leonard, Jr., CEO, Stew Leonard's

"Our sales organization is a very skeptical bunch, and your presentation was both topical and relevant. The content was right on to address the meeting theme, and was presented in way that kept the audience enthralled. I had quite a few positive comments at the break, something that does not happen frequently. We appreciate the time and effort to help make this sales meeting one of the best we have had in several years."
- Jon Kramer, Chief Marketing Officer, WestRock Merchandising Displays

“Kevin’s presentation to our Phoenix group was very well received! The topic was very relevant to all the retailers in the room, with just the right amount of humor. The icebreaker at the beginning, and the personal interaction at the end was truly engaging!”
- Cathy Kloos, Director of Human Resources, Albertsons Safeway

“Kevin was an engaging speaker whose stories really brought the concepts to life. Although his lessons were focused on retail rules to achieve business success I found the lessons could be directly linked to enhancing my leadership style. “
- Jessie Thomas, Director Merchandising Solutions, MDM and PMO, Petsmart

- Joe Himmelheber, Director of Marketing and Merchandising, Caito Foods

"Both of your presentations kept the audience engaged ... This was a difficult subject, but you made it easy to understand - and learn from. Everyone who has not yet seen one of your presentations, should know how informative and to the point your program is and how it will definitely enhance their event. "
- John M. Dumais, president/CEO, New Hampshire Grocers Association

"Kevin is an engaging speaker who really brought the content to life.  He customized his program to meet our needs to ensure our event was a success!
-Kim Richardson-Roach, Network of Executive Women (NEW), New England Region
