      November 2019 Holiday Party and CEU event

      CEU topic: Qualify More Effectively, Estimate Quickly, Get a Commitment Faster It has been said many times, the one constant is change. That is certainly true in the kitchen and bath industry today. While our experience helps us design the perfect room for our clients, it sometimes gets in the way of making necessary changes in our business. I have been in the industry for over 35 years. It would be safe to say, if we did everything exactly the same as we did when I started in 1982, we probably would not be in business today. Some changes are necessary for the survival of the business. Others are to improve benefits you and your company already offer to your clients. During this presentation, I will explore some of the changes that we have made in our business over the years. There will be opportunities for attendees to share their experiences as well. Each one of us does not need to reinvent the wheel. It is a great experience to be able to share my ideas about the industry, and hopefully take home some new ideas as well. And as a bonus, some things don’t change. Let’s take a moment to review those ideas as well.Learning Objectives:• Examine the kitchen and bath business• Implement one or more ideas quickly, to improve business practices• Shape long term planning• Build on existing strengths Speaker: Steve Strauss Steve Strauss is the president of Direct Kitchen Distributors.
