Leyard and Planar to Serve as Exclusive Digital Signage Sponsor of Jumpstart 2019
3/7/2019
Leyard and Planar, global leaders in visualization products, announced the companies will serve as the premier sponsor of Jumpstart 2019, starting with the Lessons in Strategy workshop taking place March 11-13 in Dallas, Texas.

Jumpstart 2019 Lessons in Strategy workshop is a two-day team learning experience designed for owners, partners, management and the next generation of leaders in live events technology and services. Attendees will learn how to express company goals in strategic terms that everyone can understand, tie business strategy to financial results and develop strategic thinking skills that can be applied to their business. The workshop will also cover how to nurture brand, values and culture to amplify growth and profit.

Leyard and Planar’s sponsorship of Jumpstart 2019 follows the hiring of Chris Prosio, general manager of Rental and Staging in January 2019. Prosio is an AV and media production industry veteran with more than 30 years of experience in sales, product management, event production management and video system engineering.

Tom Stimson MBA, CTS founded The Stimson Group in 2006, the presenter of Jumpstart, to work with and mentor businesses and organizations in the areas of business strategy, process, marketing and sales. He is an authority on business and strategy for small-to medium-sized companies and specializes in project-based selling. Stimson also launched AV Matters in 2006 as a free resource for individuals interested in the AV industry. Today, AV Matters is a community of over 5,000 AV professionals, delivering thought leadership and industry tips for success.

“We are honored to sponsor this year’s Jumpstart events, reinforcing Leyard and Planar’s commitment to the live events market,” said Chris Prosio, general manager of Rental and Staging at Leyard and Planar. “Tom Stimson is a well-regarded leader in the business of AV whose innovative approaches have helped many companies improve their growth and profitability.”

“I am thrilled to be working with Leyard and Planar on our Lessons workshops,” said Tom Stimson MBA, CTS, president, Stimson Group LLC. “I have devoted my career to refining best business practices for the AV industry and developed these workshops to help companies solidify their strategies and carve out new paths to success. As the global leaders in the LED video display market, Leyard and Planar demonstrate a commitment to innovation and next-level results that very much aligns with my business philosophies. I am grateful for their support.”

In addition to Lessons in Strategy, Leyard and Planar will serve as the premier sponsor of the following Jumpstart 2019 workshops in Dallas:
  • Lessons in Marketing – May 13-15
  • Lessons in Operations – August 12-14
  • Lessons in Management – November 11-13
