Ready for the Beach?

I’ve got so much to tell you about I can barely think of where to start. First, I'm really excited about the upcoming DLI/NCA conference in the Dominican Republic. Our educational program deals with topics many of us find challenging. The educational program starts off with a look at the future of clothing and textiles.  We all know the good old days of the suit and tie are gone so as a business person we need to know how to adapt.  One way is to try and anticipate what is down the road and our Friday speaker will share her insights.

Most business owners are really good at the nuts and bolts or technical aspects of their business, in our case cleaning, finishing, and stain removal, but find dealing with the marketing and advertising less appealing. Our headline speaker, graciously sponsored by Nationwide insurance and CLG, will detail how he took an iconic brand, Harley-Davidson that was severely losing market share and consumer confidence and reestablished the company as a leader in the industry.

Our final speaker touches on a topic near and dear to all our hearts but often out of mind—financial stability and how do we make sure we are planning for our future and the succession of company?

And all this great education is wrapped up in a wonderful tropical location in the company of great friends and colleagues (really the best part of the trip).  There has to be a reward after we discuss all these challenges! Check out our conference page for more information.

Before we get to the beach we'll enjoy the holiday season. Here's wishing you the best as 2016 winds down and we get ready for another great year in 2017!
