GSC Leadership Convenes

2010 Annual Meeting Updates

*Please note important changes to place and time of meeting*

The Global Sourcing Council (GSC) is pleased to announce that we have joined forces with the American Teleservices Association (ATA), NY Metro Chapter, for our annual meeting. The meeting will be held at the United Nations (UN) on December 8, 2010 from 12:30 – 5:30 pm. The meeting will start with a tour of the UN, continue with a buffet lunch/networking event, be followed by a program of distinguished speakers, and finish with a cocktail/networking event.

We are excited to introduce the Keynote Speaker for the event, Edie Weiner, president of Weiner, Edrich, Brown, Inc. (WEB). WEB is a leading futurist consulting group in the United States that has served over 300 clients (corporate, academic, government) since 1977, ranging from the U.S. Congress to many of the Fortune 500 companies. Ms. Weiner was the youngest outside woman ever elected to the board of directors of a major financial institution when she joined the board of Union Mutual Life Insurance Company (now UNUM Provident Corporation) at the age of 29. She has been a guest lecturer at Wharton, Harvard, Brown and a number of other universities. She is also the co-author of four books with her business partner Arnold Brown. Ms. Weiner is appearing as a guest of the GSC.

On December 8, Edie will take the audience beyond the constraints of current thinking and assumptions, which she calls “educated incapacity”, to the state of Future Thinking. She builds mental bridges connecting what we think we know to what we can imagine. She weaves from clues, indicators, trends and counter-trends of today the fabric of what tomorrow portends.

Seating is limited, so register early to ensure a spot at this event. Be sure to schedule additional time that day to pass through UN security checkpoints.
