Why Co-Sponsor the Business Development Series?

The Problem: Marketing & business development require time & money, and there's never enough.

The Solution: The Business Development Series (BDS) provides a series of business education workshops designed to keep you in touch with your clients and their business relationships. Over 2,500 participants have attended the BDS workshops.

The Value to You? Your clients want real world business education and knowledge to help them keep their competitive edge. Through the BDS, you will become an even stronger resource in your clients' minds, thus making it easier for them to refer you to people they know.

  • Regular contact with clients, providing them with information they want--and it makes your monthly newsletter more effective.
  • Demonstrating your clients' business success is important by providing practical business education and networking.
  • Increased visibility with your clients and their friends.
  • More interaction with your best clients to identify growth opportunities.
  • Turnkey solution designed to fit in with your marketing plan.
  • You don't have to spend time creating this solution, so your out-of-pocket cost is very, very low.
