University of Innovative Distribution (UID)

"Whether it is SWAT Team Selling or Growing the Bottom Line, I feel the knowledge gained has helped in building my business acumen and is applicable to the current business environment. I have already begun the process of using what I took away from each course to discuss strategies with my leadership team. I would recommend UID to distribution managers who are looking to up their business knowledge"
– Robert Soto, Kelly Paper

"I attended UID to brush up on my skills and gain new insight to continue to grow as a manager. I was impressed by the quality of the classes and know there is more I can learn at UID. I met people across many different industries and realized that when you remove the products, our business challenges are the same. We discussed ideas and solutions for our common issues and I brought back ideas to improve our process." – Andrew Snyder, Clampitt Paper Company
