Learning the Important Lessons

By Steve Guglielmo Learning is always something that interested me. I’m fascinated to hear what “learning style” people prefer (for me, I’m definitely a visual learner) and to hear about important lessons that people learned along the way.

Help Us Help You

By Steve Guglielmo With every issue of The MHEDA Journal we strive to be a little bit better.

MHEDA At ProMat

Next week the capital of the material handling universe will be Chicago, Illinois, as the industry descends on the Midwest for ProMat 2015. Each year, ProMat/MODEX is one of my favorite events of the year.

Is This Thing On? It’s About To Be

By Steve Guglielmo Every company out there talks about wanting to have a great company culture. It’s not often you hear presidents and CEO’s saying things like “We have a lousy culture, but we’re not worried about it.” Everybody wants to have a great culture.

Forecasting 2015

By Steve Guglielmo I don’t know about you but I’ve gotten to that point in the election cycle where I’ve stopped watching TV. Political ads have gotten out of hand and the news is really no better.
