Sep 23 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

What to Bring: Your dreams and goals, a couple of magazines, photos or images you want to use.
Provided: Poster Board, Scissors, glue, magazines, markers, misc. shapes and letters, snacks and drinks.
What is a Vision Board Experience?
It is a collection of images, words and phrases that represent your future accomplishments. You are announcing to yourself and publicly what it is you want to take place within the next 3 to 12 months. It is about manifesting what you want to bring forth into your life.
Vision Boards involve three things.
First is designing with a goal in mind. What is the story behind the goal? Stories are the framework to keeping within the script.
Second is setting up the visual identity of the storyboard. Can you clearly see the goal? Is there a date or a “by” time for completion?
Third, create an appealing design. In looking at the Vision Board does it peak your heart to take action. Is it freely laid out in a flow of manifesting? Does it have a breath of fresh air to create excitement?
The Vision Board is the beginning phase for your future life event (goal/dream). The Vision Board proclaims the visual and keeps you in the game of your goals. It will be your visual snapshot to begin your road map.

Boost Biz Ed: CUSTOMER KARMA Lifelong Customer Loyalty; host: Dru Shockley, Call To Action Alliance; presenter: Arjun Sen of ZenMango @ DaVinci Institute
Sep 27 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

CUSTOMER KARMA Lifelong Customer Loyalty by Arjun Sen of ZenMango

September 27, 2017Customer Karma will enlighten your team about the concept of Karma and how it is critical to building happy, long-term profitable customer relationships.

The number one challenge for most companies is how to be profitable without big a marketing budget. An average brand loses 25% of its customers every year. You must attract 30% more customers to get a net 5% increase in profit. What if you could reduce your losses to 20%? That would immediately double your profits to 10%.

Customer Karma focuses on “building relationships” one customer at a time. It will illustrate how you can significantly increase your “per store sales” by focusing on ONLY ONE ADDITIONAL customer per week. It will forever change the way you view your customers.

Arjun looks at brands with a clear lens. He shows you how to look at your brand from the eyes of the customer, and see the important and mission critical factors that brands often miss. His presentation will help you develop a clear strategy to grow your business immediately and over the long-term. Reflecting on proven strategies and case studies, you will reflect on why some of your strategies have not been successful, and reexamine what is truly important to customers, from their perspective. This thought-provoking, often comical presentation will generate real ideas you can implement immediately, with little or no financial investment.

You’ll Learn:

– How to identify the true lifetime value of your customers.
– How to see the Big Picture by putting yourself in the shoes of your customer.
– How to identify your brand’s Leaky Bucket®. (This dives into identifying your leaks, prioritizes them and then how to fix the most important ones)
– How to internalize how customers react to your product, your service and your brand.
– How to increase revenue without big marketing investment.

About Arjun Sen:

After more than 20 years as an executive with fortune 500 brands, Arjun uses big company strategies to grow businesses of all sizes, regardless of their budget. His keynote presentation, CUSTOMER KARMA®- Create Genuine, Life-long Customer Relationships and Increase Revenue, has motivated thousands of business owners, CEOs, entrepreneurs and sales executives to identify opportunities for organic customer loyalty.

Boost Biz Ed: The Magic T-Shirt; host: Dru Shockley, Call To Action Alliance; presenter: Greg Jameson of WebStores Ltd. @ DaVinci Institute
Oct 25 @ 9:30 am – 11:00 am

The Magic T-Shirt by Greg Jameson of WebStores Ltd.

Once someone has visited your site, what makes them return? Imagine if Facebook showed you the exact same information every time you went to their site – would you keep coming back? Probably not. The reason why people visit Facebook is because every time they go there, new content is displayed to them. What makes you think your site is any different? (it isn’t!).

If you are not showing new information every time a visitor comes to your site, they probably won’t come back. But, you can entice people to return to your site with advertising. Re-targeting ads can help get customers to return to your website. And, you can make informed decisions about your marketing rather than guessing what is working.

In this informative 1 hour presentation, Greg Jameson, author of “Amazon’s Dirty Little Secrets”, will show you how to drive people to your site with digital ads, keep them engaged once they come to your site, and get people to return to your site with ads that “re-target” previous visitors.

You’ll Learn:

– G- Generate Interest
– E- Empower Influencers
– A- Amplify your message
– R- Get Results
– S- Strategy
