Paul will provide two seminars over the Friday and Saturday at the event:

1. Is it time for the Heimlich Maneuver on your inventory? A look at efficiencies that can eliminate bottle necks that cost you HUGE money every day.

2. Don’t feed the monkey: a boot camp for owners, managers and key employees. Spend some time to take stock in yourself and identify which monkeys you are carrying and which ones are dragging you down.
