Every Entrepreneur, at every stage, needs the ability to communicate their idea,vision and venture to Stakeholder groups. What actually is the story of your venture? Even if my idea is simple, every business has so many moving parts. How do I get noticed when suppliers, investors, customers, etc all have more options than they can support? In this seminar you will learn exactly that by doing and learning from others. Mastering this could very well mean the difference between success or failure at any lifecycle stage.

This seminar offers practical do-it-yourself methods of managing the finances of start-up companies. Participants will explore simple ways to set up record-keeping systems, develop budgets and generate reports that will help them control costs, improve cash flow and contribute to the ongoing strategic planning for their businesses. Basic techniques and a quick look at QuickBooks will be discussed.

REGISTRATION CLOSED

Time: 6pm – 8pm

Presented by Glenn Emanuel, Lecturer

This workshop will explain to entrepreneurs the various legal ways to structure and protect their businesses,such as sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability corporations, and corporations. The advantages and drawbacks of the various business forms will be explored.

So, how did you set your prices? “I figured this is what the market will bear.” “Well, my competition is charging X so I charged X.” “My competitor is charging X so I undercut them!” “It cost me X to make and I want a profit of Y so I charged this amount.” All of the methods above have something in common – “They are all wrong”. All are costing you money left on the table and all are costing you customers. Come to Professor Emanuel’s Value Based Pricing Seminar and learn in one night how to correctly set prices for now and forever.
