The New Warehouse Podcast Episode 439 with JLC Robotics - Jamie Callihan and Phil Denton

Have you ever experienced imposter syndrome?  You know, the feeling that you're just not good enough to be where you are and everyone else in the room knows more than you?  That's just how I felt when Kevin Lawton invited us to speak on The New Warehouse podcast last year!

After all, The New Warehouse podcast has been around for years now and previous guests include huge companies like Vecna Robotics, Bastian Solutions, Zebra, Dematic, and many many more.  What on earth could Phil Denton say that those guys haven't already said?

As it turns out, Kevin Lawton is a miracle worker, a WONDERFUL host, and in the end, I think I actually sound a little bit like I know what I'm talking about!  I may not have decades years of manufacturing experience like Jamie, but  think I've learned a thing or two over the past couple years and I'm happy to have been able to share some of those things on The New Warehouse podcast.

I've included some highlights of our episode below, and if you take the time to listen to it, I really would like to know what you think.  Feel free to send me your feedback on LinkedIn or just leave a comment below and I promise I'll respond!
