TAYLOR TIME LIVE updates format and focus for 2022


New half-hour program length to deliver problem/solution advice from multiple Insider installer experts

DALTON, Ga. (Jan.17, 2022)– TAYLOR continues its monthlyLIVE webinar stream with more impact in less time, according to marketing director and host Seth Gladden of TaylorAdhesives. Season 3 starts at its new time of 11:30 a.m. EST to Noon on Tuesday, January 18.

“Viewers suggested that we go from one-hour to 30 minutes,” said Gladden. “We have also re-concentrated our line-up of guest experts and topics to be more oriented toward solving installation issues that everyone, from installers, contractors, retailers, and even A&D, would profit from.”

Another change Taylor is making is the number of guest experts in a program. “We are including more participants, whether in-studio, live, or pre-recorded clips to deliver a number of different viewpoints on a topic. “We are also including guest editors from the trade media to share their updates and perspectives.”

The upcoming episode on Tuesday will be on “Biggest Challenges” and will includeJon Namba, Lew Migliore, Brett Miller, John McGrath, as well as regulars Gary Schiedker, Robert Varden and Seth Gladden.

I cannot tell you how often I have been told, “The customer wouldn’t pay for substrate preparation,” or “We couldn’t acclimate the flooring because this is new construction.” I always tell these installers you should not do the installation if you cannot do it right.

The Language of Flooring Installation, Part 2

Beauty is only skin-deep, or as they say in the flooring business, surface-deep. But being in the adhesives business as we are, we’d like to respectfully disagree. For us, the real Buzz about beauty comes from down below—the Substrate, that is. For most people, they never see it, much less think about it. For us, it’s the most important thing there is. It deserves your time and attention. Speaking of which, let’s Buzz about Time, too!
