The 7 Second Trust Formula

This workshop shows you how to create instant credibility and trust both online and in your physical sales presentations. The workshop will show you:

  • The #1 mistake that most entrepreneurs make when they're trying to showcase their expertise on their website or in their sales material
  • The #1 resource entrepreneurs are not using, and most don’t even know about, to get your business to show up on Page 1 of Google. It’s not a trick, we only teach Google approved strategies, it’s actually Google’s best kept secret.
  • When people visit your page they are not going to click away in 3 seconds instead they are going to stick around and see what else you have to offer.
  • Strategic ways to use social media to set yourself up as an expert and build on that trust.
  • How to give your customers a little sample of what you do even if you offer 100% services
  • What Google's latest changes mean to your business
  • How to get better results when you're paying for Google, Facebook orLinked InAds.
  • How to pull out this formula and make it work in your sales materials

Software Geek or Business Guru - what you don’t know about your software can kill your business.

The "Software Geek or Business Guru" workshop shows you all the traps and pitfalls your company can accidentally fall into if your software's foundation isn’t set up properly. We’ve seen countless companies develop software for an entire year and some even spending a $1 million, only to have to scrap it all and start over again.

We'll show you secrets from a technical guru who has worked to develop business critical systems for companies such as Neteller, Telus and Shaw and show you how your software can be high quality, at lower costs and be able to scale.

At the conclusion of the workshop you'll have a simple roadmap on how to do it right - the first time. This workshop is ideal for both CEOs who need to understand what’s happening under the hood and for Project Managers who are working with creating custom software.

We’ve been both the recipient of government grants as well as a service provider for several successful applications.

In this workshop we’ll show you some tips we wish we would have had when we first started, what companies to partner with and how grants can be a strategic advantage for your business in the long run.

  • How do I know if I qualify?

Defining ERP: Stop, Talk & Roll

If you’re using several different software programs, if you don’t have easy access to information about your business or if your sales and customer experience are suffering, it might be time to look into using an integrated technology to help your business grow.

Integrated technologies like ERP systems help your business achieve:

  • Higher profitability

We address the questions most asked by business owners and we show you an example of what rolling out these changes looks like. At the end of the workshop you’ll have an overall picture of what to expect when you decide to meet with an ERP consultant.

  • How do I know if I’m ready for an ERP system?
  • What does a process review look like?
  • How do I determine technical fit?
