Lunch and Learn: Time to Level Up! Learn the Eight Strategic Steps Your Company Needs to Shift to a Higher Gear in 2019

January 11 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm


Speaker: Scott Hamilton

Presentation Topic: Time to Level Up! Learn the Eight Strategic Steps Your Company Needs to Shift to a Higher Gear in 2019


Start the year off right by learning the eight strategic steps you need to take your company from the middle of the pack to the top of the pyramid. Companies often struggle with developing and implementing strategies that lead to dramatic performance improvements. This Lunch & Learn will reveal the key steps your company needs to take in 2019 to reach that next level of growth and profitability.

In this highly interactive session, guests will learn:

  • How to make the “right” first, and most critical, step to executing your new strategy in the new year
  • How to focus resources for targeted wins vs. a “boil the ocean” approach
  • How to examine real alternatives vs. being hijacked by preconceived biases
  • How to eliminate bureaucracy and create a “micro-enterprise” mindset
