A Shining Example in the Printing Industry: Universal Millennium

John Sisson of Universal Millennium with Cary Sherburne on What They Think

I was quite pleased to see John Sisson of Universal Millennium featured in a WhatTheyThink.com video today. John shared some excellent information on how his company has transformed and grown their business over the years. I think that they are certainly a positive story in the printing industry.

Full disclosure — Universal Millennium is an interlinkONE customer. However, in addition to having the chance to work with the folks from Universal Millennium in the vendor/customer relationship, I also had the chance to spend a lot of time with them while I was writing my book.

Yes, in Business Transformation: A New Path to Profit for the Printing Industry, I had the opportunity to feature a case study on Universal Millennium that highlights the path their company has taken to transform into a marketing services provider.

Here are a few of my favorite points from their story:

  • They found ways to grow their business by making strategic acquisitions.
  • They determined that they needed different resources internally and externally and they made the investments.
  • They changed their branding and message to focus on what’s important — how they can help their customers!
I want to thank Cary and John for taking the time to film and publish the video on What They Think. I hope that it serves to inspire other companies that are looking to grow their business.

    Here’s the latest on the conference’s top players who are projected to go from playing on Saturdays to starring on Sundays.

    1. LB Jarvis Jones, 6-3, 241, Georgia

    Why he has the top spot: Jones’ battle with an ankle injury hasn’t changed his status as the top overall draft prospect in the SEC. He missed his second full game due to the

    injury in the Bulldogs’ 29-24 win over Kentucky on Saturday. Still, Jones remains a versatile defender who can rush the pass or drop into coverage. He’ll need a strong second

    half of the season to maintain his lofty draft status.

    Season stats (five games): 36 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 9.5 TFLs, 3 forced fumbles, 15 QB hurries, INT.

    Player ranking: Jones remains fifth overall, and he is the second-highest outside linebacker in CBSSports.com’s latest player rankings.

    Up next: The Bulldogs’ next game is against Florida. Jones returned to practice on Monday and is expected to play. Georgia will need him against a Florida team that averages 213

    yards per game on the ground.

    2. QB Tyler Wilson, 6-3, 220, Arkansas

    Why he has the second spot: After a slow start for Wilson and the Razorbacks, the senior QB has turned it around in the last few weeks before having a bye last weekend. He’ll

    have a chance to solidify his status as a first-round pick with games against Mississippi State, LSU and South Carolina still on the schedule.

    Season stats (six games): 124 of 205 (60.5 percent) for 1,957 yards, 14 TDs, 5 INTs.

    Player ranking: Wilson is ranked as the No. 12 overall prospect and is the third-highest ranked QB in CBSSports.com’s latest player rankings.

    Up next: The Razorbacks play Ole Miss this weekend. The Rebels are ranked No. 65 nationally in scoring defense, so Wilson should have a chance to put some good numbers up.
