2017-08-15 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Change is inevitable – whether it be a decreased market share, new regulations, or fresh competitors. Within new operating environments it becomes essential to become comfortable experimenting with non-traditional solutions, nurturing and testing new ideas in order to quickly implement innovative resolutions. This workshop is designed to help you think differently about your business in a time when traditional solutions are no longer sufficient. Learn how to take creative risks that result in an environment where innovative ideas take hold and make an impact to the bottom line.
