After retiring, the best advice I could give, which remains true, was to tell newcomers to learn and commit to an industry and, in turn, that industry will take care of you. Experience in sales, technology and the like are important. But taking the time to choose an industry and learn it will generate exponential value for oneself, the employer and the industry. 

There are two major, can’t-miss presentations coming this week. On Tuesday, the most comprehensive and independent economic forecast focused on our industry happens. Connor Lokar is a tremendous speaker with impressive credentials on the economic side of things. Then Wednesday, Jorma Vitkala makes his final major industry event presentation in Global Glass Industry Trends at 1 p.m. ET.
