Author William Taylor to speak at PeopleNet user conference


PeopleNet, a provider of fleet mobility systems, announced that William Taylor, founding editor of Fast Company and best selling author of Practically Radical: Not-So-Crazy Ways to Transform Your Company, Shake Up Your Industry, and Challenge Yourself, will be the keynote speaker at the company’s annual user conference to be held in San Antonio at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa, August 19-22.

“Having shook up the business magazine world with a magazine that focused on innovators and disruptors who were reinventing their industries, Mr. Taylor is a perfect choice for addressing our customers, trucking industry leaders with foresight and passion for adopting tools that drive their businesses forward,” said PeopleNet President Brian McLaughlin. “Uncertainty and change are inevitable for all industries. The regulatory, environmental, and safety issues facing fleet owners and managers require a Taylor-like grasp of successful transformation. He will apply the themes in Practically Radical to implementing a change agenda for the trucking industry.”

The company is anticipating 1,000 attendees at this year’s conference, the highest in 11 years. The conference features more than 40 education sessions, including roundtable discussions and presentations by customers who have successfully optimized efficiencies, increased safety and compliance, and enhanced customer service using PeopleNet products and services. The last day to register is August 9.
