Manasota SCORE’s upcoming workshop on “9 Foundations to Building Your Successful Business” will guide participants through exploring the practical areas of business operations that are essential to business success. This interactive workshop is based on the Business Model Canvas, an easy tool for identifying and thinking about all the distinct elements required to build and sustain a successful business, and gaining an understanding of how they are interconnected. Topics covered at the June 12 workshop will include analyzing competition, strategic alliances, and key activities and resources.
Presenter Jim Flora is a graduate of the Leadership Manatee Program and a seasoned business leader with broad general management expertise, including operations, sales, marketing, finance and strategic planning.
“Understanding how all the fundamental elements work together is crucial,” Flora said. “A business owner needs a clear idea of why the company exists, what separates it from the competition, and how good customer relationships and profitability go hand-in-hand .”
Dennis Zink, Manasota SCORE chapter chair, emphasizes the importance of using a tool like the Business Model Canvas. “When you see all the fundamentals laid out on a single page, and you realize how changes made in one aspect of your operations affects other parts of the business, you can explore business modifications and improvements before you put them into effect. That will help you avoid problems that can cause your business to fail.”
This workshop will be held from 5:30 to 8 PM on Tuesday, June 12 in the Keiser University Auditorium, 6151 Lake Osprey Drive, Sarasota. Networking begins at 5:30, and the working session begins promptly at 6 PM. The fee for this workshop is $20 in advance, $25 at the door; registration is available at https://www.manasota.score.org.
