[Guest Article] destination drupa: Podcast with Ellen Manning from Eagle Systems

Who would have thought that drupa could change someone’s mind? drupa’s ambassador Deborah Corn has met Ellen Manning, Vice President of Sales at Eagle Systems, who shares her thoughts on the printing and packaging industry and how attending drupa literally changed her life.

I met Ellen Manning, Vice President of Sales for Eagle Systems, in 2011 at a print event in Orlando, Florida. Who would have known that our lives would become intertwined, and that our chance meeting was made possible by drupa?

Ok, maybe anyone who ever attended drupa would have known. I only attended once and I now truly believe that drupa, not Disney, is the most magical place in the world.

I think Ellen may also agree. She didn’t set out to work in the industry, or to help grow Eagle Systems into a global print enhancement player. Yet on her first trip to drupa in 2008 she was hooked, and her career in print began.

Have a listen to Ellen’s story, and learn how your business and personal growth can be magically transformed at drupa 2020. See you there!
