Atlas Amplifier PDF (11.7 MB)
In April, the Windy City saw a group of forward thinkers gather downtown for two days. Together, they wrote the latest chapter in an ongoing discussion on the industry and its challenges. The Atlas Forum, 45 years young, continues a bold experiment in open and candid dialogue. It has never been more relevant than it is today.
"We're committed to bringing the kind of thinking our corporate clients want," says Atlas Chairman & CEO Glen Dunkerson. "And we continue to see attendance trending upward. We're hitting their important concerns."
"The Forum is a great place to network with others in the industry, and a great learning opportunity," says Corporate Account Manager Marcia Wilson, Walker Transfer Inc. (2114). "I was inspired by the keynote speakers, particularly Steve Gilliland. So were our agency's guests." Marcia found the Forum's theme, Go New Places, most appropriate. "We are all going new places in this economy."
Director of Corporate Business Development Sandi Cook, F. C. Tucker Company, was a guest of Guardian Relocation (1032) and among those attending the Forum for the first time. "I found it extremely informative about what's happening in the relocation industry, especially the interactive session on policies," says Sandi. "Keynote speaker Carly Fiorina was absolutely superb."
"We expected a great event as usual," says General Manager Jeremy Day, Ace Relocation Systems (62). "We weren't disappointed." In particular, he found the sessions on international strategy and best practices to be a big bonus. But the most valuable aspect, he says, is that the event "showcases Atlas as an industry leader and partner to our clients."
Of the 12 guests Ace Relocation Systems sponsored at the Forum, one had this to say: "From an HR perspective, the Forum connects me with others who are working on the same best practices...I can find out how they are making a difference in their workforces."
