About the Presentation

Presenter: Deb Hansford
Title: Owner of PreCrest, LLC
APICS Certification:  CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, C.P.M., CPSM

Abstract: Professionals of various experience levels typically seek to improve their career and provide value to their company. Many people focus on the "what" such as reducing costs with suppliers or improving processes. Then they consider "how" to design and implement the changes.

This presentation uses a specific Ted Talk as the foundation to reiterate the importance and significance of "why" and uses the Golden Circle to illustrate the shift in our thought processes.

During this interactive session, teams will learn and apply the power of "why". Hope you join us for this lively event that will help you think differently and hopefully boost your success both at home and at work.

Brief Bio: People want to learn in fun environments and Deb delivers! She uses her practical experience in supply chain to help illustrate concepts along with simulations and games. Some people see "outside the box" for creative ideas, but Deb has been accused of not seeing the box. Based on participant surveys, she takes that as a compliment. She is the owner of PreCrest, LLC since 2004 and encourages professionals and companies to "Learn More, Do More, Earn More".
