Advanced Business Retention:
Beyond the Basics
Without an effective retention and expansion program, opportunities WILL be lost. Historically, the R&E process has been tweaked mercilessly – with little change in results.
The answer to better B|RE is NOT in the process! Now, go beyond the traditional business retention “process.” Jump to a new level. Challenge yourself with new perspectives.
This is not BR|E 101. That’s been done. This course is focused on ROI: increasing the return on investment from your R&E effort, increasing value, and maximizing impact!
Learn how to dramatically expand community and organizational ROI:
- Build a dual level BR|E strategy
- Craft effective BR|E survey tools
- Cultivate “strategic information”
- Increase influence through better reporting techniques
- Drive partner resources to increase ROI
- Build new high demand existing business strategies
- Learn new funds via new funding strategies
- Utilize portfolio management to magnify impact
The traditional BR|E approach is ill equipped to address the challenges faced by communities wrought by the global competitive environment. Can you afford to waste time and money with an out-of-date strategy?
