Topic: Marketing and Sales
This will be a hands on workshop aimed at analyzing your customer base, uncovering the demographic profile of your most profitable customers, and identifying over-performing and under-performing parts of your trade area. It is most applicable for retail companies, but there are some applications for manufacturers as well. The results are best used in locating sites for new stores or relocation sites for existing stores; and the results are helpful in identifying geographic areas for target marketing in order to drive sales. (Tom Reilly teaches Marketing at Virginia Tech, and has worked for two Fortune 500 Companies as a Director of Research. The techniques covered in the workshop are used by large companies to understand their customer base.)

Topic: Managing a Business
Do you have employees, or thinking of hiring employees? If so, you need to consider having an Employee Handbook. There are items you need to include and exclude from employee handbooks. At this seminar learn what should be included and not included in an employee handbook. Don't find out in court, or in front of the EEOC that you are doing something wrong. This is a must attend class if you have, or will have employees. This class will certainly sell out, so register early.
