Key Speakers Announced for Spring Management Conference
Key Speakers Announced for Spring Management Conference

MAC’s Spring Management Conference is rounding into shape.  Mark Albrecht of 21DC Consulting & The Route Pro will be the featured Speaker on Saturday, May 4.  Then Customer Service and Sales Expert, Trudy Adams of Blue Egg Consulting will be Sunday’s Keynote Speaker.

MAC has chosen to return to the Founders Inn & Spa in Virginia Beach, VA for the association’s Spring leadership conference.  The program is set for May 4 and 5, 2019 and will focus on building a better future for the industry.  In addition to Mark and Trudy, MAC is also arranging for a speaker from the Department of Labor to discuss wage and hour pitfalls.  This is the third annual Leadership Conference in Virginia Beach.  Mark will explore motivating and retaining employees.  He will draw on his wealth of experience in the industry, as well as, his first-hand knowledge of maximizing employees potential, to provide attendees with proven strategies to help build their staff.  This is a vital topic for anyone experiencing employee issues.


Trudy’s presentation will center around creating a culture of outstanding customer service, the importance of employee empowerment, and handling even the most difficult and challenging customers.

“We felt the change in dates would allow for a greater participation” offered Mike McKay, MAC President.  “The new weekend is a earlier in the season so the program can help us prepare for the upcoming busy season.  Additionally, by moving further away from Memorial Day weekend, more drycleaners will be able to break away from their businesses.”

“We are really excited about this year’s program,” offered Peter Blake, MAC Executive Director, “ and it will be one of the best educational opportunities of the year for our members.  Both Trudy and Mark have great followings, they are both expert trainers, and the topics are timely and critical for today’s managers.”
