Lunch & Learn: 7 NEW STRATEGIES FOR RELATIONSHIP BUILDING IN THE ATTENTION AGE

7 New Strategies for Relationship Building in the Attention Age
By Jamie Shibley

– Relationship building is important!  Did you know, the average business loses around 20 percent of its customers annually simply by failing to attend to customer relationships?

– Is your relationship building strategy earning the attention of your customers?

– Are you effectively re-engaging your existing customer base?

Technology has certainly changed the way we do business, but the way we build relationships needs to adjust as well.  Our customers have had enough of being just another number in our call log and are now expecting more in exchange for loyalty.

In this presentation we’ll discuss The Attention Age and why it’s having an impact on your relationship building efforts.  We’ll also review steps you can take now to adjust your customer experience so that your brand is creating the personalization that customers are craving.

If you aren’t receiving your fair share of repeats and referrals, you’ll want to join us to learn how you can improve the relationships you have with your clients.

Jamie Shibley, Presenting 7 New Strategies for Relationship Building in the Attention Age

Jamie Shibley is the CEO & Co-founder of The Expressory, a relationship marketing service that helps business owners maintain a personal touch in their relationship building efforts.

Jamie understands that in today’s high-tech world consumers and businesses alike are forced to ration what gets their attention. As such, we are experiencing an age where we spend less of our time creating quality relationships and more time being proud of the on the quantity. In business, our customers are now demanding more. Jamie wants to help business owners navigate this shift in customer expectations for a more personal relationship with the companies they do business with.

Jamie spent the last 7 years managing eCommerce websites for major consumer packaged goods brands, where she witnessed firsthand the negative impact of impersonal customer service on well-known brands. Prior to that, she spent 13 years in various IT-related roles. Jamie holds a degree in Management Information Systems and a Masters in Project Management. And, of course, in her free time, she enjoys crafting and creating handmade gifts.

Bookkeeping Best Practices, Great Friday at Wisconsin Business Owners Lunch & Learn

Wisconsin Business Owners Lunch & Learn –
Bookkeeping Best Practices
Presented by Rachel LaMantia

Bookkeeping Best Practices from a Pro!

– Are your business’s books up to date?
– Are they accurate?
– Are your bookkeeping processes efficient or are you wasting time?

All small business owners need to keep track of their financial transactions. This can become a mess and a time suck, but it doesn’t have to be. Learn some best practices to help ease this burden.

During our time together, we will talk about why you should keep up with your books and what you gain from having them correct. Then we’ll cover several techniques and tips – including how to deal with all those receipts! Bring your questions for a Q&A at the end.

If you’re interested in streamlining your bookkeeping processes, please join us for this event!

MEET OUR EXPERT: RACHEL LAMANTIA

Bookkeeping Best Practices, presented by our expert, Rachel LaMantia

Rachel LaMantia was born and raised a Wisconsin girl. She’s always loved math and developed a passion for small business when she and her dad opened a franchise in 2010. Her small business ownership experience gives her a unique perspective working with her clients, and her bookkeeping practice is a perfect blend of her talents and background. She’s committed to helping her clients grow their businesses and believes having great books isn’t just for taxes – it’s valuable information for knowing your business.

Rachel and her husband Brian live in Wauwatosa with the best dog ever, Bella. She loves her too many hobbies, which include playing her flute, hiking, making homemade pizza, volunteering, and DIY projects.

WisOwners Lunch & Learn – The Only 6 Ways to Improve Your Business

The Only 6 Ways to Improve Your Business
Wisconsin Business Owners Lunch & Learn

The Only 6 Ways to Improve Your Business
Presented by Jason Weseman

· Do you believe that it is possible to DOUBLE your revenues in just 2.7 years?

· Do you understand the Law of Incremental Improvement and know how to implement it in your business?

· Do you want to leave a session with practical, applicable knowledge that you can use in your business immediately?

One of the most important discoveries is that fully 95% of what you think, feel, do and achieve is the result of habit. Since childhood, you have developed conditioned responses that lead you to react, often unthinkingly to situations in life. The exciting thing is that all habits and skills are learned. New, good habits and skills can be learned through conscious practice and repetition. Likewise, old, poor habits can be unlearned.

We all get the same 24 hours each day. And the fact is that you cannot save time…you can only spend it differently.

Everything discussed in this workshop has been tested and proven by thousands of companies and hundreds of thousands of FocalPoint clients worldwide

“If you are interested in doubling your revenue in under three years then join us and learn how to make it happen!”

Reserve your seat now for February 23rd’s Lunch & Learn! If you’d like to sign up for the Special Morning Session, you’ll need to register for that separately.

Presented by Darren Fisher

PLEASE NOTE: WE’RE ENTERING THE OFFICE TOWER ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE BUILDING.
1025 South Moorland, 1st Floor (Enter, turn left, people to greet you!)

FearMotional: Learn to Change by Overcoming Fear and Failure
By Darren Fisher

·  Why is it so hard to change?

·  Why does fear grip so many leaders and business owners?

·  What part do emotions play in your decision making?

The success of a business owner is contingent upon their ability to repeat successful behaviors and avoid known failing behaviors. This is difficult to do when balancing financial needs, demanding customers, and overcoming fear of business failure.

During our time together:

•  Learn how to move beyond embracing change and actually changing behavior

•  Learn the three behavioral reactions to stress (flight, fight, freeze)

•  Learn the four aspects of how we decided to react (trigger, feeling, decision, response)

•  Learn the power of emotions on our behaviors

If you are interested in overcoming fear then join us and learn how to grow your business strategically.

Reserve your seat now for December 1st Lunch & Learn!

MEET OUR EXPERT: STACY KAAT  

Headshot of Stacy Kaat, Wisconsin Business Owners Organizer and Professional Photographer Presenting more knowledge than you ever thought possible about professional headshots.

Stacy Kaat, Wisconsin Business Owners Organizer and Professional Photographer – Presenting more knowledge than you ever thought possible about a professional headshot.

Four years ago, when I restarted my photography
business, I noticed how business had changed because of the internet. People were putting profile images of themselves on professional websites that were far from professional. I know that people that are busy doing business and don’t realize the importance of the image they put online for the world to see and how it could ruin their reputation. I realized that I had a skill-set that I could use to help people look their professional best and convey a message about who they are in the business world.

My background as a hair and makeup artist and 20 plus years of expertise working in the commercial photography world kept me on top of every detail from lighting people and the environment to clothing, makeup, hair, and managing the visual clutter that was often present in an environment. My job also entailed making clients comfortable so they would feel confident and express that confidence in their photographs. The commercial photographers I worked with demanded that I oversee and manage the shoot so they could focus on photography. They expected me to make the clients comfortable as well. I learned how to do all that and make the photo shoot fun too!
