Benchmarking Conference Welcomes Chris McChesney as Keynote Speaker

Indianapolis – The Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors is pleased to welcome Chris McChesney as a keynote speaker during its annual Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference. MAPP’s largest annual event, the 2019 Benchmarking and Best Practices Conference, will take place at the Indianapolis Downtown Marriott in Indianapolis, IN, on October 2-4, 2019 and draw over 625 manufacturing professionals.

McChesney is the co-author of the best-selling book in the world on strategy execution titled, “The 4 Disciplines of Execution.” McChesney has presented on some of the biggest stages in the world, including at the Global Leadership Summit, the World Business Forum at the Lincoln Center in New York City and in Sydney, Milan, Mexico City and Madrid. He has personally led many of the most noted implementations of the 4 Disciplines, including the State of Georgia, Marriott International, Kroger, Coca Cola, Comcast, FritoLay, Lockheed and more. Known for his high-energy and engaging message, McChesney has become one of the most requested speakers within the Franklin Covey Organization, helping leaders to focus and leverage organizational behavior to accomplish their wildly important goals despite a whirlwind of competing priorities.
