2009 Congress to Offer an Education on Navigating Turbulence

The Opening Session that kicks off NSC's 2009 Congress & Expo will feature a keynote presentation appropriately named in more ways than one: "Successful Strategies Through Turbulence." Delivering this timely address will be Howard P. Putnam, former CEO of Southwest and Braniff Airlines and group VP of Marketing for United Airlines. Scheduled for Monday, Oct. 26, from 8-9:30 a.m., the session promises to offer a look at Putman's guidelines for leaders with a clear understanding of their business and vision in order to survive and thrive through challenges.

The executive forum, scheduled from 10-11:30 a.m., will discuss "The Role of the EHS Executive in an Economic Downturn -- How Do We Deal with the Conditions of the Economy Strategically?" As part of NSC's new Executive Edge Track, the forum will address timely and relevant concerns as Greg Hale, chief safety officer and vice president of safety at Walt Disney Park & Resorts, moderates a discussion with Col. James Grace, director of safety for the United States Marine Corps; Peter Knollmeyer, chief operating officer and executive vice president at Fluor Hanford; and Mike Murray, president and CEO at FirstGroup America Inc.

The Executive Edge Track was newly established this year within NSC's Technical Sessions offerings because of the overwhelming success of last year's Executive Forum, which saw a 49-percent increase in executive-level attendees from 2006 to 2007. Its purpose is to provide a mechanism for evidence-based practices and solutions to be captured for those engaged in decision making, strategic planning processes, resource allocation, and the integration between EHS and operations in their organizations.

NSC's new Off-The-Job Workshop, "Bringing Safety Home: Developing and Sustaining Off-The-Job Safety and Health Programs," is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. This hands-on workshop will show attendees how to make the case for off-the-job safety and health programs, create work plans for a successful program start-up, and more.
