“We are honored to have Postmaster General Louis DeJoy speak at thINK Ahead 2023,” said Lori Messina, thINK Board President and President, Access Direct. “Attendees will have a rare opportunity to hear directly from the Postmaster General himself and gain exclusive insights into the latest USPS initiatives and trends.”

In addition, thINK is excited to announce special guest speaker FAU head basketball coach, Dusty May, who led the 2022-23 men’s Florida Atlantic University basketball team to what is undoubtedly its greatest season in the school’s history, advancing to the Final Four while posting a program-best 35-4 record.

“Coach May has had a very successful career in coaching and has led several teams to NCAA tournament appearances,” said Francis McMahon, Executive Vice President, Production Print Solutions, Canon Solutions America, Inc.  "His expertise in coaching and leadership will inspire me and Canon Solutions America production inkjet customers to excel in our own roles as leaders in the print industry."

The two newly announced guest speakers will join an already impressive line-up of thINK Ahead 2023 speakers, including a special “un-keynote” by Freestyle ,  a unique program that was born in 2018 when Anthony Veneziale, Chris Sullivan, and Andrew Bancroft (all members of Lin Manuel Miranda’s Tony Award-winning Broadway show, Freestyle Love Supreme) founded the Freestyle Love Supreme Academy to foster diverse creative voices using improvised freestyle rap.

thINK Ahead attendees will also be able to choose from a variety of educational breakout sessions including workforce development and retention strategies, postal regulations, sustainability, robotics, profitability strategies, keys to maintaining a healthy business, and more. Additional learning opportunities will be available in the Partner Pavilion, with Canon Solutions America inkjet partners on site to share comprehensive inkjet solutions in lively partner discussions and in thINK theater presentations.

In addition, Canon Solutions America will share an update on the print industry and innovative inkjet technologies, and invites thINK Ahead attendees who want to come early or stay after the event to view demos and tour the Canon Americas Customer Innovation Center. While at the Canon Americas Customer Innovation Center, thINK Ahead attendees can get inkjet inspiration at the Inkjet Print Innovation Wall, a display of innovative inkjet print projects submitted by Canon Solutions America inkjet customers.
