We’re encountering some of the greatest transitions that any generation has ever had to face. Technological disruption is already affecting every part of our lives; every business, every industry, every society — even what it means to be “human.” These changes show no signs of slowing down; in fact, they’re accelerating rapidly.
But the ever-increasing pace of change doesn’t just hold challenges - it holds opportunity. We are shifting from an economic model based on scarcity to one of abundance. What are the strategic implications? What kinds of policies do we need? What is the impact on our economy? What are the ethical considerations? None of the old rules apply.
Join us in August 2018 at the SSAA Convention 2018 — and be prepared for what lies ahead.
You’ll learn about Online Marketing - Legal and Public policies - Human Resource Management - Social Media Management - Improving your online reputation - How to Automate your Business - An Introduction to Gen Z - and more… We expect you to come away from the Convention with nothing less than a total paradigm shift about where the Self Storage Industry has come, where it’s heading, and what’s possible.
The SSAA Convention 2018 promises to be the best you’ve ever attended
Over the course of three days in August, you’ll hear from experts in the Self Storage Industry and beyond, and learn what the implications are for you. You’ll also discover cutting edge methods in online marketing taking place across the globe.
