Inside Drew’s Perspective: A Letter from the President

DrewDear Readers,

With Labor Day behind us, so ends the Summer season and everyone is shaking off the last remaining remnants of Summer vacations.  For some, our kids are back in school; all of us return to more of a normal state and get ready for the Holiday season which will be here before we know it.

Less than one week away, comes Pinnacle Summit 2016; by far our biggest event of the year.  As in previous years our attendance will surpass the prior year, and we have a fantastic lineup in store for clients and partners alike.  Butch Egan from Western Oil will kick things off as our Summit master of ceremonies, followed immediately by our award winning opening keynote speaker Shep Hyken, New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling business author of hundreds of publications.  This year’s Summit includes an array of powerful client speakers, industry experts, 4 separate tracks of breakout sessions, and we will of course have a little fun after the long days of education, networking, and sharing with others.

For those of you already registered for Pinnacle Summit, see you in Frisco soon!  If you’re reading this newsletter and have not, however, there is still time and we would really like to see you there.

Safe travels,

Drew Mize
Pinnacle Corp., President
