Impressive slate of speakers set for HARDI's Annual Conference


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Heating, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) has signed on a diverse range of guest speakers to head up the agenda at "Shift Into Gear," HARDI's annual conference to be held December 6-9 in San Antonio.

The young, the wise, the politically savvy and the technologically gifted will take center stage to infuse distributors and suppliers alike with renewed energy to take charge of their economic futures.

The array of speakers begins on Sunday, December 7 with Alan Beaulieu, president of ITR Economics and HARDI's chief economist. A perennial favorite, Beaulieu's presentation is the first on the schedule and will provide the context around which the remaining speakers will revolve. Attendees will take away data, solutions and strategies that could change the course of their business.

Robert Stephens started The Geek Squad in Minneapolis with $200 and a bicycle. By 2002, The Geek Squad had entered into a joint operation with Best Buy and is now the world's largest technology support company. Stephens will speak on Monday, December 8; his keynote will focus on how to spot the "next big thing" that could give a business that fresh injection of technological innovation and creative problem solving.

Tucker Carlson, editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller news site and co-host of Fox and Friends Weekend, will offer a unique perspective on the political landscape with wit and skepticism on December 9.
