Presented by Michael Bissanti
Your team is your biggest asset. They represent your brand and have a big impact on the success of your business. Yet many small business owners and managers often hire "anybody" and not the "right" body. In this seminar, we will look at how to use the vision you have for your business as your guide to making great hires. If you are interested in putting together a great team of service oriented people join us to discuss the importance of hiring for character and competence.
Please join us for this interactive and engaging seminar. Register by contacting Rona Abrahams at 617-349-4637 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is free of charge.
