SBDC at UW-Green Bay to offer three no-cost business webinars in early 2014
The Small Business Development Center at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay will present three no-cost webinars in the first quarter of 2014, offering enrichment opportunities on a variety of relevant topics. Sessions last 30 minutes, plus time for a question-and-answer session.
The first webinar of the year, titled “How to Boost Sales This Quarter,” will be offered at noon on Tuesday, Jan. 21, and again at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23. Jim Ball, owner of Square One Sales & Marketing, will present on impacting sales in the short term — something many business owners want to do, even as they lack a reliable way to do it. Ball will teach participants how to find and secure short-term sales to impact cash flow within three months.
February’s webinar, titled “How to Own Your Calendar,” will offer advice on how to make the most of one’s time, a common challenge for individuals from many walks of life. Presented by Joe Simon, Marketplace Ministry/life coach, the webinar will be offered at noon on Tuesday, Feb. 18, and again at 1 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 20.
In March, business owners and others can learn “How to Find and Engage New Customers,” during a webinar session that covers that topic. Growth of new customers is a top priority of most businesses, and yet most sales teams simply don’t have the knowledge or tools to do the job. Webinar participants will learn the techniques their sales teams can use to begin finding and winning new customers. Presented by Michael Wentworth, founder and president of TMR Associates, LLC, the webinar will be offered at noon on Tuesday, March 18, and again at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 20.
