Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber’s GROWTH: Brand, Sales & Marketing Seminar

This year’s seminar features: Sonya Burke of Montgomery Community Media who will speak on: “Using the Press to Tell Your Story More Effectively & Attract Your Target Audience” and Chad Prinkey of Neuberger & Company, Inc. who will present: “Your Best Customer is Someone Else’s Prospect….. What are you Doing to Keep Them?

Join us for an exciting seminar where you will discover how to maintain and increase sales & how to make your business more newsworthy by telling your story to attract your target audience.

Why You Should Attend:

PART I: “Using the Press to Tell Your Story More Effectively & Attract Your Target Audience” Practical implications for some of the most innovative developments in media relations, including the technologies, methodologies and mannerisms that determine the ecosystem in which PR pros practice this essential part of their craft. It is something every business needs. After all, publicity aims to bring the news of your company to the world. The more newsworthy you make your company, the more coverage you’ll get.

PART II: “Your Best Customer is Someone Else’s Prospect….. What are you Doing to Keep Them?  Nine out of ten people are in the selling business, some do it better than others, Chad Prinkey will help you be the very best. Nine out of 10 people work in some area of sales. They might call it business development , customer service, or client retention, but regardless of whether you work with clients, customers or patients, most people are in a sales business . . . nothing happens until something is sold. How many business owners have you ever met that said, “We are really in the business of delivering service.” And the other great line is, “The most important part of our business is our people.” Yet, how many of those companies also say the most difficult part of their business is maintaining or increasing their sales and the most troubling challenge is their people, specifically finding, hiring and keeping great employees. Prinkey of Neuberger and Company expertise is focused in these two areas.

PART III: Conversation with the Panelists A question & answer portion of the seminar. Come prepared with your questions? Our speakers are here to help your business grow!  For further details on the seminar topics, click here now.
