    Surviving & Thriving In Today's Business Environment:

    Models/Strategies/Execution

    Presenter: Eric Schillinger, EJS Millennium Enterprises

    The business environment today is very competitive, complex, fast and uncertain.
    A recent Annual Survey of Entrepreneurs (ASE), published by the SBA Office of Advocacy, indicated that the four common items negatively impacting company profitability are: 1) taxes, 2) unpredictability of business conditions and 3) slow business or lost sales and 4) cost of financial capital.
    Additional challenges revealed in PwC's 2018 21st Annual Global CEO Survey
    include "The Perception of Top Threats in North America": the top 10 include: cyber threats, over-regulation, geopolitical uncertainty, terrorism, speed of technological change, increasing tax burden, availability of skills, social instability, protectionism and changing workforce demographics. 
    82% of the CEOs surveyed also believe that "we live in an increasingly fractured world of multiple, fragmented ecosystems". 

    Our interactive workshop with Eric today will focus on connecting your specific priority items--the ones where you need to close the gap between where you are and where you need to be, to survive and grow your business--with our key learning objectives.

    Three key learnings the audience will take away from this program:
    1. Key Learning Objective #1: Critical Success/Survival Items And Why They’re Important--In The Context Of A Structure To Handle Both The Internal And External Environments.
    2. Key Learning #2: How To Make Your Business Flexible Enough To Keep Up With Your Customers, The Market And Technology—In The Context Of A Structure to Handle Both The Internal And External Environments.
    3. Key Learning #3: Getting You Started Defining And Designing Your Flexible Business—In The Context Of A Structure To Handle Both The Internal And External Environments.

    Get a Grip on Your Business: Six keys to getting what you want from your business

    Presenters: Jamie Cornehlsen

    This presentation contains all the tools and components that make up the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS). EOS is a holistic, self-sustaining system that addresses the six aspects of your business. Master the individual elements of EOS and you’ll be able to integrate them into a powerful framework that will help you gain traction and realize the vision you’ve always had for your company.

    Three key learnings the audience will take away from this program:
    1. Vision-100% clear on where you are going
    2. Traction - Accountable, Disciplined and executing to your goal
    3. Healthy - Functional and Cohesive

    -----------------------------

    Jamie Cornehlsen started his first company with two friends during the oil embargo in 1979. Business was easy. No Starbucks existed and he sold coffee and donuts to everyone sitting in their cars purchasing gas. Jamie's second business was developing and selling mutual funds to Financial Advisors, growing this to $219 million. After losing two financial advisor clients, he realized the need for a precise process.

    This led to the search for a good system and tools to run a business. Jamie's third business was created after working with small businesses who needed to take their practice to a business. This led to working with over 80 clients to transform their business.

    Jamie works to connect People, Purpose and Passion to enable business owners to gain more control and value from their business.
