Successful Entrepreneur to Present
“Natural Laws of Business”
Wine industry professionals will be served up deli-style during Ari Weinzweig’s keynote address at ShipCompliant’s 9th annual DIRECT 2014 sales conference, taking place May 8 and 9 at the Napa Valley Marriott.
Weinzweig is the co-owner and founder of Zingerman’s Delicatessen in Ann Arbor Michigan, an impressive family of companies built from the ground up and now approaching more than $40 million in sales.
Weinzweig is the author of several books, including
Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading: Part 1, A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to Building a Great Business. He will be discussing his “natural laws of business” and how they can have particular applicability to the wine industry.
According to Dennis Taibl, ShipCompliant’s Director of Sales and Marketing, Weinzweig’s highly successful approach is focused on establishing a solid and replicable business model that creates rewarding environments for staff and customers alike.
“It’s a holistic view of business,” Taibl affirms. “Ari presents a strategically sound vision with reasons for customers to buy, as well as clear expectations and training tools for staff. It’s all about empowering people to succeed and providing a valuable experience for the customer.”
DIRECT 2014 will also feature ShipCompliant’s CEO Jason Eckenroth, presenting an overview of “An Industry Evolving;” Steve Gross, VP of State Relations at the Wine Institute, presenting state-by-state legislative updates; and industry-focused breakout sessions as well as an exhibitor showcase featuring the latest technology to help grow your business.
A key component of this year’s conference is an additional day devoted entirely to ShipCompliant University, a hands-on software training session for ShipCompliant clients and others, with the ability to earn onsite “certification.”
“So much of our customer contact is done on the phone,” Taibl says. “This is a chance to meet one-on-one with our valued clients to familiarize them with many exciting new aspects of our software. It’s also a social opportunity for us as a company to personally meet with the people we love creating solutions for.”
ShipCompliant is the industry’s leading compliance management software solution to wineries and retailers who ship directly to consumers. For more information about the company and to register for the conference, go to www.shipcompliant.com.
