   Seminar #1 - Promotions That Work - Presented by Pete Madland, TLW Executive Director

Is business slow?  Are you getting “stale”? Every business could use a little shot in the arm   now and then and this seminar could provide just that. 
Pete will discuss proven promotions that he used during his 20+ years in business. 
He will also interact with the audience to find out what promotions they have used to help boost sales.

Pete will not be talking about Facebook, websites or other “modern” methods to promote.  Instead, he will talk about practical, hands on promotions that anyone can implement at their places of business, no matter how large or small that business may be.

Pete’s program has been presented at previous Tavern League conferences as well as other state and national conventions. 

You are guaranteed to walk away with at least one promotional idea to help improve sales.  This is a fun seminar that passes quickly.
Come and pick up some new promotional ideas and share yours.


   Seminar #2 - Basics of Estate Planning - Presented by Peter E Grosskopf

Estate planning should be a part of any business plan.  Attorney Peter Grosskopf will lead a discussion on estate planning for small business owners.  Topics such as limiting personal liability and how to transition your business to the next generation will be discussed.  What is probate?  What happens if you become disabled, place in a nursing home or even die?  These are unpleasant thoughts but they must be dealt with. Mr. Grosskopf will help.
