So You Think (or Hope) You Understand Financials…
Presented by Anna Samorukova

Some of us are intimidated by numbers, by math, by financial statements. Some of us think (or hope) we understand our company’s P & L – and some of us are not sure. What about you?

As family business owners and employees, you know your business in and out: what you sell, who your customers are, what you need to have in place and where to get it. You know your business value chain from where it all starts and to how it ends in your customers’ hands. You know what sales, expenses, profits mean.

We invite you to take your grasp of business financials and business thinking to the next level. Join this game-based, interactive, fun and engaging session to understand the story financial data tells you and how you can grow your business from better understanding of this data.

We will teach you some new skills and delve into some useful tools that you may not have seen since you took that course on business financials. You will leave with a deeper understanding of what your P & L and balance sheet can reveal to you.

And you will have some fun.

Accountability: What it Means, Why it Matters, and How to do it Better
Presented by David C. Tate

Click here to view David C. Tate's biography.

We talk about accountability in many aspects of our lives, and we think we have a good idea of what it actually means. But do we really? Perhaps we are not as clear about it as we could be.

Being able to model and promote accountability is essential for successful leadership and management. These conferences will afford participants the opportunity to explore what being accountable means and how its presence (or absence) affects relationships and results.

In addition, participants will assess the quality of accountability among important stakeholder relationships and will leave with a plan to improve their own practice of accountability.

In this conference, David Tate will:

  • Help participants understand what accountability means and why it is critical for organizational success
  • Present a model of behavioral accountability to help participants assess the quality of accountability among their most important stakeholders.
  • Allow participants to discuss their practices of accountability and make a plan to increase accountability in relationships that matter to them.

Join us to improve the quality of your leadership and the quality of your relationships in all parts of your lives.
