What makes MAPI council meetings different?
Roundtable discussions: Rich dialogue on the issues you care about, moderated to keep discussions focused on the “so what”.
Peer to peer sharing: There are no talking heads. Almost all of the content is delivered by your peers at global manufacturers, sharing experiences candidly.
No death by PowerPoint: While our presenters deliver outstanding content, we schedule ample time for interaction and Q&A, so that you can dig deep on the topics that matter.
No pitches: Our council meetings aren’t sponsored, and there are no sales pitches. None.
Balance of strategy and utility: Our council meetings deliver great content around strategy and peer-tested frameworks for putting those strategies into action
