Orlando CNSLand This Week

“Greetings from beautiful Orlando, Florida. For those who do not know me, I’m Lionel, your CNS President, proclaims Lionel van der Walt.
     “This is the first CNS Partnership Conference I have had the privilege to personally plan, and I just wanted to take a moment to share the following thoughts as we get underway addressing the critical issues of our industry and network to build better relationships at this week’s 27th Annual CNS Partnership Conference, April 30-May 2, 2017.”

Voice of Members & Stakeholders

     “Since joining CNS at the end of 2015, one of my top priorities has been to ensure that the voices of our members and industry stakeholders are heard and become central to all that we do.
     “As such, the CNS team has made a concerted effort this year to deliver an agenda at the Partnership Conference that is relevant and centered on the needs of our attendees.”

Others Talk We Listen

     “We have paid particular attention to the comments and suggestions received as part of the 2016 conference feedback and the discussions I have had since Nashville. The conference agenda has been refocused on sessions that will provide insight into what is in store for the air cargo industry in the months and years ahead, the aim being to provide meaningful knowledge that will add value to day-to-day business.”

Monday & Tuesday Sessions Build Business

     Lionel also includes a valuable cautionary tone to the proceedings:
     “To ensure CNS delivers the fullest value, and out of respect for the time and effort our speakers and panelists are committing to us, we kindly ask that everyone join the gathering and support Monday and Tuesday’s plenary sessions."

All Out Effort

     “The CNS team has done a tremendous amount of work to secure a top line-up of speakers and panelists.
     “However, this is the CNS Partnership Conference,” Lionel smiles, “where business comes first. “We understand that first and foremost everyone is here to network and develop new partnerships.
     “We respect this fact.
     “That said there are vey good and meaningful sessions in store at the plenaries that will bring real value up and down the line.
     “Our team has made every effort this year to create an environment and program that will help to facilitate these imperative aspects of the conference program.”

Talk To Us: We Can Take It

     “It’s all about the attendees,” Lionel insists.
     “We are paying close attention to their feedback and hopefully at the end of the conference they will agree that we have met, or even exceeded their expectations. This is certainly something we at CNS would like to achieve.
     “Finally I hope that the participants this year will look for me and let me know what they think of our 2017 Partnership Conference. As mentioned previously, such feedback is really important and most appreciated.
     “For those who are unable to join us in Orlando this year, we hope they can join us in 2018,” Lionel said.
