Building Traction on a Changing Business Terrain
Tuesday, January 15 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Edmonton
Running a business is a rewarding experience, but unexpected challenges can set-up a domino effect that can lead to devastating results, for even the most seasoned business owner. There are many uncertainties that can affect a business’ growth and development, making both short and long-term planning a challenge. Every year Alberta businesses are tested by a myriad of obstacles such as: slow economy, a physical disruption from city maintenance, ability to find and keep the right team, maintaining loyalty with clients in order to sustain and grow market share, just to
name a few. Why do some businesses struggle while others thrive in the same situations?
“Automation”, “innovation” and “disruption” are familiar headlines, but how are they relevant to your business? This seminar introduces the business owner or team leader through the 6-step
