Air Products’ (NYSE:APD) Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer Victoria Brifo will deliver the keynote address at the Gases and Welding Distributors Association’s (GAWDA) Spring Management Conference at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5 at the JW Marriot Indianapolis, Indiana.
The conference theme is “Leaders Mentoring Leaders – Working Together to Tame the Chaos.” Brifo’s keynote address will focus on “Leadership Lessons from the Pandemic.”
“The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic prompted many employees, and leaders, to re-evaluate their work life. Now, more than ever, work must be about more than a well-earned paycheck. People want to feel good about their work, to know that their daily tasks are making a positive difference in their community and the larger world,” said Brifo. “This approach ties in well with Air Products’ higher purpose to bring people together to collaborate and innovate solutions to the world’s most significant energy and environmental challenges, and create a work environment where every employee feels proud to come to work and know they belong and matter.”
Air Products representatives attending GAWDA will be available at contact booth #703 on Monday, April 4. GAWDA attendees are invited to stop by to learn about Air Products’ safe and reliable industrial gas supply and innovative solutions that can help independent distributors address customer challenges.
GAWDA’s Spring Management Conference is designed to promote interaction between owners/CEOs, management and operations decision-makers. The Conference serves as an ideal platform for tactical networking, process-oriented business education, and actionable take-home solutions.
