Business Skills Event Planned

CHICAGO – SEN Design Group, a kitchen and bath industry buying group and business education resource, is accepting registrations for its Business School, to be held in-person at theMart (formerly known as Merchandise Mart) in Chicago. The four-day event – scheduled for July 12-15 and sponsored by Custom Wood Products – empowers business owners and executives in the kitchen and bath industry with the right tools to grow their businesses, according to SEN.

“The Business School is the kitchen and bath executives’ opportunity to move the needle in their organizations. It’s a truly transformational, poignant program that brings industry executives to the next level,” said Dan Luck, SEN Design Group’s senior v.p. “The program covers critical topics to maximize returns, master financials, leverage marketing strategies, improve personnel relations and implement proven methods to quickly and profitably grow kitchen and bath businesses.”

But a successful business cannot rely solely on financial and business skills. Kitchen and bath business owners must also advance their personnel management skills, which is why the Business School includes a module dedicated to helping participants motivate and lead employees effectively.

The third day of the intensive program will focus on how to leverage marketing strategies to grow the business. This module will cover strategies to stand apart from the competition, the importance of creating a marketing plan, how to effectively use customer relationship management (CRM) tools, how to implement digital marketing campaigns and creative data-driven analytics to generate more leads.
