LIVE in Memphis: Next Steel 101 Workshop on April 19-20

Written by Brett Linton

Join us in Memphis, Tenn., for the next LIVE Steel 101 workshop on April 19-20, 2022. We are pleased to offer our first in-person course since the pandemic and will include an in-person tour of Nucor Steel Arkansas.

Steel Market Update’s Steel 101: Introduction to Steelmaking & Market Fundamentals workshop has been helping businesses empower their employees (from entry level to C-suite executives) for well over a decade.

It’s sound advice to invest in your staff’s professional development and training – whether to ensure that new starters gain confidence in their industry knowledge, or to encourage employees who want to deepen their market knowledge by attending a refresher course.

This two-day event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Memphis Downtown Hotel, with mill transportation provided by SMU. Lunch is provided on both days. A networking happy hour will be offered at the end of day one for you to meet and mingle with the instructors and other workshop attendees.

Some of the advice you are likely to hear during the course:

  • Become a student of the market
  • Speak to your customers and suppliers
  • Try to get steel analyst publications
  • Take everything you read with a grain of salt
  • Don’t rely on just one side of the market for your information (e.g., sales vs. purchasing)
  • Understand leading vs. lagging indicators
  • When communicating within the company, organize your thoughts and take emotion out of the discussion
  • Understand how the ebb and flow of markets and pricing impacts your job
  • Ask questions!

Whether you are new to the industry or are experienced and changing roles, our experts will help you gain the knowledge to succeed.

Register now and you will receive access to two days of in-person training, a steel mill tour on day one, networking opportunities with instructors and fellow attendees, multiple Q&A sessions with our experienced instructors, and a comprehensive course workbook. This workshop also includes a certificate of completion for 11 hours of training that you can claim towards your ISM CPM recertification credits.

The cost for attending the Steel 101 workshop is just $2,100 per person. Don’t forget, SMU/CRU subscribers can save $100 plus an additional $100 per person for companies that register two or more people for the same workshop
