In this post, I am announcing a new webinar series that is designed to assist green industry firms in making better (more informed) managerial decisions in the midst of an economic downturn that is turning markets upside down. In this hypercompetitive market, the competitive advantages you enjoy today may vanish with breathtaking speed, and in this type of environment, the things you don't know can hurt you!
You may be saying to yourself: "I don't have time and can't afford to attend another meeting." That's the beauty of a webinar - it only takes 45 minutes out of your day; you don't have to spend money traveling anywhere; and you can 'attend' sitting in front of your own computer! Ask yourself these questions…
- Are business profits shrinking and you're not sure why?
- Are you uncertain how sustainability can help your business?
- Has marketing become more of a challenge?
- Has your business been impacted by the economic downturn?
- Are operating costs spiraling out of control?
If you answered yes to any of these questions; if you feel the business climate continues to deteriorate; and if you are worried about the future of your business, then attend this webinar series and learn useful strategies to increase your firm's bottom line!
