As always, our monthly General Meeting is free and no RSVP is required. 


Featured Presentation: "Growing your Business Through Team Strengths" by Phil McCallum and Daniel Webb. The asset of your business is your team and your staff. How can we bring out their best performance? The secret is not in fixing up their weaknesses but in bringing out their strengths. The StrengthsFinder 2.0 (developed by Donald Clifton and Gallup) can help you to discover latent potential hidden within you and your team. Drawing from experience of working with staffs both large and small, Phil and Daniel will help you find the tools you need to build your business better through your team.
