WisOwners Lunch & Learn: Plan Your Brand

Plan Your Brand

by Ashley Sebaaly

Do you have a strong, consistent brand that is attracting new customers?

Are you in love with your branding and are proud to show it off to any new prospect and your audience?

Let’s pretend your business is a person. Does your current branding reflect your business’ personality?

Branding can rise or ruin any business. Regardless if you offer a service or a product, work remote or at an office, been in the game for decades or a start-up; branding is important for every business owner.

From my past and current experiences in corporate and entrepreneurship, I will guide you to create a strong, consistent brand that not only you will fall in love with but can use to attract new customers and grow your business.

We all have ups and downs in entrepreneurship. It is important to take a step back and look at the fundamentals of our own business. During this presentation, we will dive deep beyond the pretty, stylistic elements and get into the nuts and bolts of branding. All attendees will be provided with their very own Plan Your Brand Checklist during the presentation.

If you are interested in attracting new customers and growing your business, then join us to learn how to create a strong, consistent brand.

Mind-Flipping by Rick Paddock WisOwners Lunch & Learn on Friday, Dec 7th

MIND FLIPPING –
Simple Steps to Renovating and Updating Your Mind, Business, and Life
By Rick Paddock

You’ve heard of house-flipping…try Mind-Flipping!

– Do you have an improvement “Wish List” for your business as you do for your home?
– Could your business “habits” use updating and improving?
– Are you ready to multiply the value of your business?

Just as the homes we live in become outdated, and in need of repair and renovation, so can our businesses. What part of your business is leaking profits? Any mold remediation needed to get your business looking and smelling it’s best? Whether it’s managing stress, feelings of overwhelm, lack of confidence, or any other thought, feeling or activity related to our business, our mindsets have the greatest impact, positively and negatively, on our bottom-line. Learn to direct and harness your mind, and your business and life will never be the same.

In this Mind Flipping presentation, discover how a mind-makeover is the fastest way to a business you’re proud to call your own. Hypnotist and Trainer Rick Paddock will share the power of the mind through demonstrations, stories, and strategies that you can use immediately to improve the results you see in your business and life. Learn to release life-long pests as well as those that only recently have snuck in through the cracks of your business foundation. Your best business and life is only a mind-flip away!

Diversity: It Isn’t Just for Big Business Anymore | Oct 26 Lunch & Learn

Diversity: It Isn’t Just for Big Business Anymore

By Susan McCuistion

– Are you confused by all the mythology around Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) – myths like, “Diversity is only about non-majority people,” and “Diversity is a win/lose proposition”?

– Does your growing business suffer from “diversity debt”?

– Have you ever wondered, “Why can’t we all just get along?”

As a small business owner, if you think, “Diversity and inclusion don’t apply to me. It’s only for big businesses,” you’re wrong. The practice of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) applies to everything we do – from internal processes and procedures to interactions with clients to customer sales and interacting within our communities.

Navigating the complexities of D&I can be daunting. It’s easy to be afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing, but avoiding D&I isn’t a solution. Businesses often “do diversity” because it’s the “right” thing. The truth is, it’s the only thing. When we look at diversity broadly – the influences, experiences, and education that create our unique perspectives in the world – it becomes obvious diversity is a part of every interaction we have. Not only do diversity and inclusion permeate every area of our lives, but both are essential to building a successful, thriving business.

If you’re interested in connecting to clients, customers and employees in a more meaningful way, then join us to learn how to begin building a more inclusive business culture.

MEET OUR DIVERSITY EXPERT SUSAN MCCUISTION:

Photo fo Diversity & Inclusion Expert, Susan MccuistionSusan McCuistion is a cultural practitioner and creator of Compassionate Diversity®, which integrates concepts from the fields of intercultural competence, emotional intelligence, leadership, neuroscience, and more into powerful tools for change. Compassionate Diversity® uses three interrelated concepts – Comprehension, Connection, and Compassion – to help build empathy and create an action plan for addressing the historic and systemic issues that are a part of our current world.

Susan offers 25 years of human resources consulting and training experience, together with specialty skills in national culture and subculture, and diversity best practices.
