OMAHA, Neb. — Independent consulting firm Methods for Management (MfM) reports it held its biennial Success Conference in October 2018, at the Hotel Boulderado in Boulder, Colo.
The conference focused on, “Interaction to promote profit, sales, business development, effective management, creative marketing and mindfulness among owners and vendors in the drycleaning industry,” MFM says.
Featured presentations, it relates, included: Cracking the Millennial Code: How to Manage & Market to a Generation That Hates Both, by Brad Szollose, a globally recognized management consultant and business author.
Another presentation: Business without Stress: Learning to manage stress through mindfulness and the breath, was given by Jamie Albano, director of member development with MfM.
The Eight Drivers That Maximize Your Business Value, was presented by Bob Clements, co-founder, strategic marketing director, and general counsel for Benchmark Business Group, which provides business coaching, consulting, and business brokerage services, MfM notes.
Among other topics presented at the conference was, No Bad Days, a talk given by Bruce Hamilton, who believes, MfM says, “That if you allow yourself to have a bad day, you lose! Bruce shared his philosophy in a fast-paced, humorous style.”
About the Success Conference, MfM relates that, “Drycleaners worldwide competed for fabulous prizes in the awards ceremony, moderated by Kermit Engh, managing partner at MfM.”
Some of the reported winners include: View Cleaners, for store of the year; and Crouse’s Cleaners, a double winner for website of the year and for social media, MfM reports.
On the final day of the conference, MfM members and speakers participated in roundtable discussions, one of which was conducted by Kermit Engh, who demonstrated the newly-redesigned MfM members’ website and members’ financial-input tool, it notes.
“MfM wishes to thank the speakers, the generous industry sponsors who participated, and all the attendees for the active leadership roles they played throughout the conference, all to make MfM’s Success Conference a true success,” the firm says.
