Motivational speaking coming to MMT

    Peter Schutz will be in Steelville on Friday, October 11 to offer “The Driving Force,” a motivational presentation on achieving “extraordinary results with ordinary people.” The event will be held at the Meramec Music Theatre from 9 a.m. to noon. Registration is $249 and includes the three-hour presentation, a copy of his book, the opportunity to meet him after the presentation, and light refreshments.

    Schutz will talk about what he calls “the only lasting competitive advantage that any business can have,” and that is learning how to encourage regular everyday employees to do great things. In this presentation, Schutz will share personal experiences as the former CEO of Porsche AG, where the company's sales volume doubled and its profits increased over tenfold during his tenure. The techniques presented have been applied successfully by a number of modern management teams.
    Schutz, who is now retired from Porsche, along with Sheila Harris, formed Harris & Schutz, Inc. in 1991 to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between Schutz and business people all over the world. Peter's background in engineering, coupled with his experience in marketing and management gives him a unique perspective on business today.
    This event offers a great opportunity for local businesses and organizations to hear his engaging presentation. For more information, contact Locklear and Associates at 775-4721 or register online at
