Have us speak at your next event

One of our favourite things to do is to share what we’ve learned over the last fifteen years working with hundreds of small businesses and thousands of people.

With that in mind we’ve developed five workshops specifically designed for small business owners.  There’s no fluff in our workshops. We provide workbooks for each talk so that when you attend you can be sure that you will get specific ideas you can put to work in your business immediately. 

1. How to Market Your Business in Today’s Noisy Market Place

The average person is exposed to over 3000 promotional messages a day. The challenge for today’s small business owner is that 99.99% of those messages get blocked out. You need a system that helps you stand out without going broke.

  • How to create a message that your customers will pay attention to
  • How to chose the right mediums to deliver your message
  • How to use traditional media, online tactics and direct strategies to reach your audience
  • How to budget and manage your marketing

2. How to Develop Your Online Presence

Google states that 87% of purchases today begin with an online search. No matter what you sell be it a product or a service, how you show up online will have a huge impact on your success.

3. The One Page Strategic Plan

Setting the right plan for your business is critical for success, but so is executing that plan. The problem is most strategic plans sit on a shelf collecting dust.  Join us for a hands-on workshop where you’ll learn how to develop a one page strategic plan that is easy to execute and measure. 

You will leave this workshop with a developed plan that focuses on the following:

  • How to set goals and organize your resources
  • How to differentiate your business in a crowded marketplace
  • The 5 most important elements of your business

4. The New Reality of Sales

As a business owner you wear many hats, but none are more important than your sales hat. Your ability to attract and persuade customers is critical to your success, but in today’s crowded and noisy environment, a new set of skills is required. 

Join us for this interactive workshop where you’ll learn: 

  • How to standout in your market

5. The High Cost of a Disengaged Employee

A disengaged employee can cost you and your organization close to $10,000 per year in lost productivity. A recent Canadian study showed that 7 out of 10 employees are considered disengaged and 3 out of 10 are actively disengaged - meaning they’re actively trying to cause problems at work.

Join us for this interactive seminar where you will learn:

  • How to identify the factors that cause employees to become disengaged
  • How to develop a positive work culture 
  • How to turn around a disengaged employee

Other workshops can be developed, call us to discuss your needs.
