(October 26, 2020) — The first day of the virtual Total Solutions Plus (TSP) 2020 Conference kicked off today with rousing keynote presentation by Jessica Rector, “Blaze Your Brain: Transform Negative Thoughts into Positive Results.” In the hour talk, Rector took the virtual audience through a process that explored mistakes people make with burnout and stress, strategies, exercises and suggestions to combat that familiar sense of overwhelm; consequences of not dealing with it, and strategies for moving forward in a more relaxed, supported and empowered way.
After the keynote, attendees had the opportunity to visit exhibitor virtual booths in a 75-minute Exhibit Hour. Exhibitors had a range of ways to interact and impart information, including starting a discussion or participating in a chat, watching videos, or experience a live visit with the company staff on hand.
Tomorrow’s program starts off with a presentation by Turkishceramics at 8 a.m. CDT, followed at 9 a.m. CDT by a 60 Minute Intro to Mindfulness by Gianna Vallefuoco on how to reduce stress in the tile industry. At 10 a.m., select a business presentation on Be Your Best Everyday: 5 Principles to Consistent Sales Success, or a technical panel discussion entitled Trends in Jobsite Installation Failures and Best Practices in Quality Control/ Prevention. At 11 a.m. – noon, choose from three hour-long collaborative discussions: Getting Back to In-Person Events (Tradeshows, Conventions, Workshops, Trainings and Certifications); Growing the Market for Tile though Why Tile and the Porcelain Tile Marketing Campaign; and How Contractors are Operating in the COVID World.
After a lunch break, come back for a LATICRETE product demonstration, from 1 p.m. – 2:15 p.m. CDT
