ASC Announces Fall Convention Speakers

The Adhesive and Sealant Council, Inc. (ASC) has announced that Nat Brooks, Global Program manager for Competitive Intelligence at the Procter & Gamble Co. (P&G), and Doug Walden, Corporate Sustainability Program manager at Owens Corning, will speak at its upcoming Fall Convention & Expo. The executives will discuss how sustainability plays a role at their companies, why sustainability matters, and how adhesive and sealant companies can respond. The event will be held at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter in Covington, KY, on October 3-5.

In the convention’s opening session on October 4, Brooks will share how P&G approaches business strategy in an increasingly competitive marketplace and how firms might implement strategies that address sustainability. Walden will close the convention on October 5 with his presentation on the role buildings play in the energy footprint and the lessons that Owens Corning has learned while engaging the sustainable marketplace.

Other keynote sessions include Anthony Watanabe, Ph.D., president and CEO of Innovolve Group, and Peter Young, managing director and president of Young & Partners. Watanabe will examine how to use sustainability as a tool to meet organizational challenges. Young will address where the chemical industry is headed from a financial perspective, including an examination of the status of merger and acquisition activity and the future of consolidation.

“Listening to customers and responding to their needs are important aspects of a successful supply chain,” said Jim Owens, ASC chairman and senior vice president of H.B. Fuller Co. “In listening to our industry’s customers, it is clear that sustainability is an ongoing concern. Attending the ASC fall convention will provide access to executives from leading multinational corporations, thus creating a unique learning opportunity to better understand key drivers in today’s marketplace.”
