"Making Profit a Reality"

The next CTDA webinar is scheduled for Friday, October 21st at 10am central on "Making Profit a Reality" by Al Bates, Chairman, President and founder of the Profit Planning Group.

Webinar Participants Will Learn:

The last three years have been humbling in terms of both sales and profitability.  While firms have worked very hard to rethink their cost structure and build a leaner organization, these efforts are, they haven’t been enough. 

At the same time, some firms have generated strong profits, even in the midst of brutal economic conditions.  They have done so by focusing on the key drivers of profitability–gross margin and payroll control.

This session will focus on recession-proofing the business for the future.  This means building a business that can generate sustainable profits in both good times and bad.  The session will also review the problems to avoid as the recession ends.  Since every recession eventually ends, even this one, it is essential to put in place the procedures that will ensure permanent success.
