Get Some Training Too!
For many of us, the written word is not enough. We want to be shown, then practice, and then chat in person about how to do it better. To meet these needs, Tom Gray created Business Techniques Institute – Chicagoland, a group of 12 face-to-face half-day workshops, partnering with local organizations like Small Business Development Centers, SCORE, and local colleges.
Each workshop provides slides and a workbook to apply the techniques to your own business problem during the workshop, and uses one of the booklets as its text.
Small business owners and managers can attend one workshop or several, depending on the topics they want to explore and the problems they seek to solve. The first series begins in September at the College of DuPage Center for Entrepreneurship, 2525 Cabot Drive, Suite 201, Lisle, Illinois. The second series begins two weeks later at the Illinois SBDC at Governors State University, 1 University Parkway, Room C3300, University Park, Illinois.
The Growing Revenue workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, November 12 at COD, and Tuesday December 2 at GSU, 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. To register, visit Business Techniques Institute | Get Better @ Business
