Many business owners will tell you that they want to take their businesses to the next level but they don’t know how. Fortunately, if you are located in Westchester County, NY you have the opportunity to find out how to do that. I am happy to be coordinating a program that has helped Westchester County NY business owners for over 15 years.
The program is a joint effort by Westchester Community College and The Business Council of Westchester. This twelve week program will begin on Tuesday, February 4, 2014, at 6pm and will meet each Tuesday from 6pm to 9pm for 12 weeks.
The Academy only works with established businesses - businesses that are at least three years old. (An exception might be made for a business not three years old if the entrepreneur has had previous experience.) Problems begin when businesses get to be in a growth stage. This course is about bringing your business to the next level. A business owner needs to have control over all aspects of his/her business to make it grow.
The Academy is about WORKING ON your business vs. WORKING IN your business. Each Tuesday night a new expert on one part of the business shares his/her knowledge with you. Here is a partial list of profiles of those experts. In addition, each participant is assigned a Business Coach and receives 1/2 hour to 45 minutes phone coaching every week. Finally, each participant gets to present his/her business plan to a panel which really tops off this experience and sets the participant up for more success.
THIS 12 SESSION PROGRAM COVERS:
• Human Resources
• Website/Social Media
• Legal Considerations
• Sales Strategies
• Customer Service
• Branding/Public Relations
• Risk & Insurance
• Accounting/How to Think Like a CFO
• Strategic Planning/Goal Achievement
