DAY 3—THURSDAY, OCT. 11
It’s a beautiful morning in Las Vegas,
and you make your way to the continental

The Immersion Program was as engaging as it was informative.
Your head is still swimming with what you’ve just learned as you
make your way toward your next workshop.

where the buffet lunch awaits.
A hot meal and a refreshing beverage later and you see it’s
time to meet your colleague for some educational expo hall
shopping. With more than 40 categories of staffing industry products and services
at the Staffing World expo, there’s nothing you can’t find.
It’s 2: 30 p.m., and you can’t believe the next workshop is your last at Staffing
World 2012. You find yourself wishing you could hit rewind and start all over again.

Your workshop finale is outstanding. As you help yourself to a cool drink and
a snack just outside the room, you continue the discussion with a few of
your fellow workshop participants. You all exchange business cards and
agree to contact one another again.
It’s 3:45 and time for the Staffing World Closing General Session. You want to get a
good seat for the keynote presentation by Simon Mainwaring. You read about him
in a recent issue of Staffing Success magazine, and were intrigued by his thoughts
on branding, technology, and the staffing industry.
