Vistage Retreat
Meeting, Learning, and Relaxing

TTE CEO Terry Thompson attended her Vistage group's annual retreat this month in Galena, Illinois. The retreat was held at the Eagle Ridge Resort. Discussions focused on managing your business in today's economy, as well as marketing approaches and tools.
     Some of the key ideas for managing your business in today's economy were to continue working on bringing in new clients, as well as to take care of current clients, and to keep cash reserves available, accessible, and in your accounts as much as possible.
     The group got to know one another on a more personal level as members gave short presentations on their personal stories and backgrounds. Retreat participants were also able to take advantage of the relaxation opportunites at the resort and in Galena during "free-time" on Saturday afternoon.
