January 11, 2017, 2:00 p.m.
David Fellman, President, David Fellman & Associates

You’ve decided that it’s time to hire a salesperson, either to open new territory, or to replace a salesperson that is leaving (or being discharged!) This can be an exciting time for a printing company, but it’s also a dangerous time. You want to hire a top performer, not an underachiever who’ll cost you time and money and never deliver a return on your investment. There’s a lot more to hiring a winner than just running an ad and waiting for resumes.

In this program, Scott Hunter teaches the fine art of leadership and how to create a working environment that nurtures and supports people to be creative, productive and profitable.
