Columbus, MS (PRWEB) May 01, 2012
Ceco Building Systems, a leading manufacturer of custom metal building systems, recently held its 2012 biannual National Sales Meeting at the Wynn Las Vegas and Encore Hotel in Las Vegas, NV. Themed “Risky Business,” the three-day meeting provided over 350 builders and business experts the opportunity to network, renew friendships and learn ways to manage the risks inherent to the construction industry.
Keynote speakers at the meeting included Capt. J. Charles Plumb, U.S. Navy retired, author of I’m No Hero; and Jeff Cochran of the Shapiro Negotiations Institute in Baltimore, MD. Capt. Plumb shared his experiences as a Vietnam prisoner of war and how having a positive attitude, communicating with others and setting goals kept him going through the darkest period of his life. Cochran’s message, titled “Taking the Risk out of Dealing with Difficult Individuals,” examined how to use humor to identify different personality types, the traits behind the types and how to successfully negotiate with “difficult individuals.”
During breakout sessions, authorized Ceco builders learned about new product lines, new manufacturing capabilities, project financing and computer-aided design for metal building systems from employees of Ceco and its parent company, NCI Building Systems, Inc. During the Awards Banquet, builders were recognized for their outstanding accomplishments in 2011. Awards were presented to the Top 10 Builders, Regional Builders of the Year, and Top Builders in Cumulative Sales. Special recognition was given to builders celebrating 25 years of partnering with Ceco Building Systems.
