Director of Education and Training, Platt Retail Institute
After 31 years of federal service, Margot Myers recently accepted an early retirement offer from the Postal Service and established Tazco Consultants, a communications consulting group in which she will focus on the digital signage industry. In January, she joined Platt Retail Institute as Director of Education & Training. She will manage programs to educate both new and established digital signage users on key aspects of digital media including deployment, network management, content development and measurement. The division also works with hardware/software companies and resellers to offer employee training and certification.
Myers was Manager, Retail In-Store Programs for the U.S. Postal Service until January 2009. She was responsible for managing the messaging and point-of-purchase materials displayed in more than 32,000 Post Offices. An early adopter of using technology to enhance communications, she installed and managed an employee-facing communications network in the mid-90s in more than 600 postal facilities. In 2004, she deployed and tested The Post Office Channel, a digital signage network designed to communicate with customers in postal retail lobbies.
Myers is a member of the Advisory Boards for Digital Signage Expo, the Digital Signage Show and the Digital Signage Association where she currently serves as VP for Users.
