I go to lots of conferences, but for me, the Operations Summit is the most helpful to our clients and our consulting practice at F. Curtis Barry & Company. Why? It is dedicated exclusively to improving direct-to-customer and omnichannel operations, presenting a broad range of operations experiences and solutions. It’s not too late to join us at Operations Summit 2016, April 12-14 at the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati.
