NPTC Annual Conference Features Engaged Learning
Arlington, VA – More than 1,000 people are expected to converge on Cincinnati April 27-29, 2008 for the National Private Truck Council’s (NPTC) Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition at the Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza and Duke Energy Center.
“By any measure, Cincinnati promises to be the most exciting annual conference in more than a decade,” said Ralph Benson, president of Sentinel Transportation and chairman of the NPTC Conference Planning Committee. “We have assembled a power-packed agenda of dynamic speakers and an unparalleled lineup of hard-hitting educational workshops.”
Keynote speakers for this year’s conference include:
• John Boyens, who will address the Sunday kickoff luncheon. He is the author of several audio CD series including Techniques of World Class Sellers, Accelerated Sales Audio Program and Creating a Productive Selling Zone®.
• Dan Baker, who will speak at the Driver Hall of Fame luncheon on Monday. Dan is a nationally known speaker, teacher and consultant to the trucking industry. He travels extensively throughout the US and Canada, working with more than 300 trucking companies of all sizes and types.
• Johnny Bench, who will be the featured speaker at the Tuesday luncheon. The Hall of Fame catcher who played for the Cincinnati Reds has used his celebrity status to aid such worthy causes as the Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, the Kidney Foundation, Franciscan Sisters of Poor Health System, the American Lung Association, and the 'Catch the Cure' program of the Children's Hospital of Cincinnati.
The Annual Conference Planning Committee, which is comprised of fleet and allied members, has developed a slate of 25 educational workshops to be presented by the private fleet community’s most experienced and professional practitioners. “These sessions provide illuminating insights and best practices that will help demystify some of the critical issues and challenges facing today’s private fleet executives,” according to Benson.
In addition, the NPTC 2008 Exhibition will feature an extensive showcase of fleet products and services from leading industry suppliers featuring the latest in product development and state-of-the-art technology for today's demanding fleet operations.
Founded in 1939, the National Private Truck Council is the only national trade association exclusively representing the interests of the private truck industry and corporate/business private truck fleet management. NPTC is the premier marketplace of information, networking and skill building for private fleet professionals as it leads in shaping the future of corporate transportation.
