From Your Executive Director

Is October really upon us? This means the holiday season is here and we all know how chaotic this time of year can be. 

We've pulled together a few resources below that may help boost sales and help keep you balanced. In the coming month we have a number of exciting events. We are delighted to bring back our Refuel event October 10-14th. Join us  daily for fast-moving presentations with PG suppliers that will leave attendees inspired. We will connect with members attending Promotions East October 17-19th, in Atlantic City, NJ for networking, education and more new product discovery; and our distributor principals with gather at the end of the month in Clearwater for what I know will prove to be another productive meeting of the minds. 

Need help with your own client holiday gifts? We have self-promo deals available to you below - so make sure to take full advantage of those offerings before the deadline on Oct 15th! Keep reading for ideas on how to help you balance all this business with time for yourself. Self-preservation seems to be key to making through the busy season. I look forward to seeing you all "screenside" very soon.

Sales Director-Eastern US and Canada

Vantage Apparel

Q: If you had to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be? Why? 

A: Pizza. So many different styles and variations. Ultimate love- deep dish with sausage and mushrooms.

Q: Who's your biggest influence in your life?

A: My wife. We've been together since I was 17 so she's really helped shape most of my views and approaches to life. Add in the fact she's brilliant and it serves as a nice sounding board and partner. She's the ace up my sleeve.

Q: What's your favorite project of all time?

A: One that really stands out was with Menda from Creative Studio. Early in the pandemic we did quarter zips for a hospital client's COVID relief efforts. This was in April of 2020 and no one really knew how things were going to play out. The project was large, but the reason it was a favorite is it truly felt like we were meeting the moment through promotional apparel.
