SEMA Show Education: 5 Seminars for Small Business Owners and Managers

By Zane Clark

SEMA Education
With the vast majority of educations seminars being offered at no additional expense, SEMA Show Education offers employers a value-rich program by which to invest in professional development for their employees.

Business today is in a constant state of flux. In addition to evolving customer needs and emerging technologies, small business owners are expected to keep up-to-date on regulations, tax code and create business plans that lead to sustainability. In other words, owners and managers must go from working in the business to working on the business. Generally, the idea is entrepreneurs often get caught up on the day-to-day running of the business and don’t spend enough time dreaming, planning big goals and thinking about the future. SEMA Show Education offers Showgoers the opportunity to take a step back to prepare their businesses.

Featured below are five sessions sure to keep your business on track:
