This seminar will give you the guidelines you need to develop strategy by thinking outside the box. 3 days.

What new approaches to your business can enrich existing customers, win new customers and ward off competitors? Is the way you define your current business still correct? How can you put your company on its next path to success? How can you balance what is new with what is proven? How can you make employees drivers, and not victims, of change? What parameters will allow you to go on the offensive when pursuing opportunities that constantly present themselves? This seminar will inspire and give a set of guidelines to anyone, for whom the status quo is no longer good enough.
