Manufacturing Talk Radio is excited to announce an expansion of its network broadcasts with the launch of A Global Perspective with Dr. Adriana Sanford, a show that will cover some of the risks and ramifications for multinational corporations doing business in Europe, South America or Asia when jurisdictional laws conflict with U.S. law, as both Microsoft and Apple have experienced. Dr. Sanford’s guest today at approximately 2:00 p.m. will be Mr. Wilfried Grommen, Chief Technology Officer at Hewlett Packard for Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Immediately preceding this new broadcast at 1:00 p.m. EDT will be Lew Weiss and Tim Grady interviewing Brad Holcomb, Committee Chair of the ISM Manufacturing Report on Business, and Dr. Chris Kuehl, noted economist with Armada Corporate Intelligence and the Fabricators and Manufacturers Association International (FMAnet.org) speaking on the Credit Manager’s Index report released March 31, 2017 by the National Association of Credit Managers (nacm.org). Finally, we encourage young and old alike to visit mfgtalkradio.com to provide their input the the pending retirement of Dandelion Yellow, one of the primary colors scheduled to be absent from Crayola boxes around the world in the very near future. Please answer our simple one-question survey to help encourage Dandelion Yellow to maintain its presence in Crayola boxes so children and artists around the globe will have just the right color for the sun in the sky or the signature blazers of the Manufacturing Talk Radio crew.
