    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 01/12/2020

    Every brand, company and organization has a customer experience, whether they invest in it or ignore it. And not every customer is created equal. Customers are much more likely to be engaged with the brands and organizations that go beyond demographics—the brands that understand what they are thinking and feeling and can reflect that in their customer experience. Looking at the end-to-end experience from a customer's perspective could help you or your clients identify an ""aha"" to turn first-time customers into loyal, repeat customers. Join Adara Bowen, director of brand experience for the American Marketing Association, to understand the breadth of customer experience, develop a journey map from the perspective of the customer, and identify opportunities for an improved customer experience and touch points for promotional products.

  • Business Transition and Succession Planning

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    This webinar is designed to help business owners achieve more successful transitions, such as changes in ownership and management. According to the Small Business Administration, over the next five years, more than 40 percent of privately-owned companies will transition, with poor planning as the main reason for doing so. Succession planning is an unfamiliar challenge for most business owners, especially when family is involved. Having a plan in place can be extraordinarily valuable in relieving the uncertainties caused by not knowing how to proceed, or the impact succession can have on employees, family relationships and even your own financial security. Webinar participants will learn valuable information to help business owners identify actions to begin minimizing their risks, increasing value and improving the outcome of their transition. You will learn what transition readiness is, why it matters and how to improve your personal and business outcomes.

    •    What are your possible exit strategies and how will you get there?

    •    Why is succession planning a process, not an event?

    •    What are the major factors and long-term objectives that you, as a business owner, need to consider when transitioning your business?

    •    How do I ensure a business transition will provide you with an income stream during retirement?

    •    What is your business’s worth and why is an independent, objective valuation of your business important?

    •    Congratulations! You have successfully transitioned your business. What do you do now?
