In an effort to contribute to the overall goal of the conference to give attendees accessible, in-depth knowledge about the transportation industry and prepare for business-impacting changes in this election year, Harris will be sharing examples of how BlueGrace delivers satisfaction and service internally and externally with social media.
“Social Media is forging a new era in business opportunity and engagement, creating two-way communication that enables customer feedback and response in real-time,” said Bobby Harris of BlueGrace, one of the fastest-growing freight and logistics concepts in the nation. “I look forward to discussing how all of us in the transportation industry can use the Social Media landscape to the fullest advantage.”
Since 1954, key industry players have gathered at SMC3 conferences, and attendance has grown more than 25 percent over the past year. This year, the conference will include three days of sessions and breakouts, more than 20 hours of networking, 30+ supply chain presenters and Q&A with industry leaders. Of special interest this year, SMC3 has partnered with the Georgia Aquarium to offer attendees VIP access to the world’s largest collection of aquatic exhibits and a presentation from National Geographic Emerging Explorer Alexandra Cousteau.
The conference’s ongoing dialogue and expert insights continue to strengthen the industry. In addition to social media, topics that will be covered include creating a supply chain center of excellence, how organizations can become “consciously excellent,” managing change in a multigenerational workplace, and how to identify and nurture talent, conduct succession planning, and align leadership development with your overall corporate strategy. Attendees should also note the new U.S. Legislative & Regulatory Panel, which will include noted panelist Jim Burnley, former U.S. Secretary of Transportation.
