We often talk about the right behaviours needed for success, but our actions come from what and how we think. This is also true of our team and customers.
To drive meaningful change within others or ourselves we need to understand the difference between commitment and compliance. True ownership of results can only come from establishing the right thoughts and attitudes. To do differently we have to think differently.

Increasing lump sum-style programs, an onslaught of technology and the ever-connected consumer are all evolving the relocation landscape.

So how do we balance the service needs of today’s corporate client and transferee with broker’s need to maintain profitability?

Much like relocation services, business functions like purchasing, warehousing and transportation were historically considered by corporate executives as cost centers. However, after a number of years of fighting for meager budgets, they shifted their business case approach. They wisely moved their economic justification towards demonstrating their actual revenue and business impacts. And, under the label of supply chain, it is now considered to be an essential strategic function, and in some cases even a profit center. In an effort to make a similar transition, we invited Dr. John Sullivan, an expert in identifying business outcomes. We asked him, to increase our awareness of the often-undercounted business impacts resulting from great relocation services. During this energized and thought-provoking session, he will cover these important topics:
