Discover the Possibilities with CNIC 2013 General Sessions

October 17, 2012 – Are you looking for amazing information and ideas to take your operation or business to the next level? At SNA’s 2013 Child Nutrition Industry Conference (CNIC), which will be held January 13-15, 2013, at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio, you’ll discover the possibilities to make that happen. This annual meeting of school nutrition operators and industry partners will include numerous educational sessions and networking opportunities focused on the conference theme “Where Partners Create Possibilities,” and will help you build essential relationships that will bring about the results your operation needs.

This year’s General Session keynote speakers are guaranteed to encourage and motivate you. In fact, they may transform the way you think about school nutrition. Ross Shafer is one of the most popular speakers and seminar leaders on the subjects of personal motivation, reinvention and market relevance, and he will offer you a fresh approach to change, transition and growth. A comedian and former Emmy-winning TV host, Shafer is also the best-selling author of Nobody Moved Your Cheese and has produced 14 human resource training films on customer service, motivation, leadership and peer pressure. While the words “change” or “transition” can strike fear in just about anyone, Shafer will inspire you to make change and transition work for you—today, tomorrow and always!

Do the changing obstacles that sprout up in your business sometimes throw you for a loop? As a leader in school nutrition, it’s important to be prepared for obstacles, learn how to overcome them, and create positive possibilities for the future. For more than 20 years, Jackie Freiberg, leadership expert and bestselling author of several books, including NUTS! Southwest Airlines' Crazy Recipe for Business and Personal Success has dedicated her career to helping leaders do their BEST work to create a BETTER world. Freiberg is one of the most sought-after female business speakers in the nation and is among the “Top 30 Best Minds on Leadership” (Leadership Excellence magazine).
