Delano, MN (PRWEB) January 03, 2014
Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its New England playground consultant, M.E. O’Brien & Sons, Inc., will exhibit at the 2014 Northern New England Recreation & Park Conference Jan. 7-9, at in Bartlett, N.H. The conference will feature Eileen Soisson, president and owner of The Meeting Institute (TMI), LLC, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2013-2014 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.
In Soisson’s keynote, she’ll share humorous stories, rich content and a challenge for attendees to unlock their potential. Despite being motivated by different external and internal sources, there are four ways individuals can unlock their potential. Although they appear very common sense, they are not necessarily so common in our everyday workplace. By thinking more positively, communicating effectively, acting powerfully and leading others we can create a stronger workplace and culture. This leadership is needed in our recreational workplaces and it has to start with each of us. Soisson’s experience at TMI helps her train recreation- and hospitality- driven businesses to develop the best suited team members for service excellence.
Soisson’s 75-minute session will be presented at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 7. In addition to her keynote, Soisson will host education sessions throughout the remainder of the Conference. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit M.E. O’Brien & Sons and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall following the keynote session to learn about the latest trends in playground design including inclusive play and custom and theme designs.
