Dscoop,The Digital Solutions Cooperative, a community of HP digital press owners has announced it will hold a special combination networking and education program for members in conjunction with Graph Expo 2010 in Chicago.

The Dscoop event will kick off Monday, October 4, with an evening reception at the River East Arts Center.  Members will reconvene the following day for the program themed, "The Relationship Between Leadership and Profitability." A Dscoop Leadership Breakfast, open to members, kicks off the program that morning from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. in the Grand Ballroom of McCormick Place.

Immediately following the breakfast will be an educational panel discussion session, open to all Graph Expo attendees, from 8:45 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., titled "Redirecting Your Business Strategies for Future Success," moderated by Joe Truncale, president and CEO of NAPL.  This special program will present the landmark findings of a major research project by NAPL, involving CEOs of privately held businesses in the North American graphic communications industry, designed to answer the question: "Is there a link between sustained, higher than average corporate performance and the interpersonal communication skills of the executive leader?"  This session will feature two Dscoop members in the commercial and large-format segments who successfully used the study results' specific approach to leadership. The panelists will provide specific examples of how they altered their intra-company communication strategy to foster long-term growth strategies, and conclude the program with an interactive audience Q&A session.

Dscoop is a member-run organization focused on supporting each other to collectively improve their print businesses and the backbone technology of HP Graphic Arts digital solutions.  "Dscoop is proud to partner with Graph Expo to present this timely and relevant networking breakfast and session," says Larry Vaughn, Dscoop chairman and president of Ideal Printers. "Providing educational and networking events year-round aligns with our mission and provides an added incentive to our members who are already planning on attending this seminal industry event in Chicago."
