EVANSVILLE, (Ind.) - (Evansville, IN) -- Atlas Van Lines' 34th Forum on Moving in April will feature economist Stuart Varney, credited for changing the way television reports financial and economic news worldwide. Varney, one of the original CNN newscasters and financial commentators, will address hundreds of Atlas agents and corporate guests at the yearly industry event with his assessment of worldwide politics as it relates to economic trends, opportunities and hazards.
At the Atlas Forum on Moving, relocation, transportation and human resource administrators from some of America's leading companies share ideas, information, and concerns about the changing relocation landscape. This year's Forum will host panel discussions on current industry issues such as the Internet as a relocation tool, "soft" issues of relocation, and corporate relocation policy ideas.
The event will take place April 26 and 27 at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Chicago. Forum 2001 also will include keynote speaker Lisa Ford, who specializes in service excellence training, employee motivation, and leadership development, and John Powers, co-founder and president of The Powers of Motivation Institute. Comedian Richard Jeni will provide entertainment after the Forum reception and dinner on the evening of April 26.
Still unique to the moving industry, the Atlas Forum on Moving each year brings together more than 500 corporate administrators and moving agents.
