Tri-Ed partners with Jim Brown for education series
Tri-Ed has partnered with James B. Brown Consulting Inc. to provide a series of seminars as part of its introduction of the Tri-Ed Continuing Education Series. Initially, there will be six including Leadership, Strategic Planning, Employee Development, Finance for the Non-Financial Manager, Sustainable Profitability, and Succession Planning.
The seminars will be held in Tri-Ed branches. The content will be designed for small the medium-sized businesses, and seminars are expected to run in the late afternoon/early evening to accommodate attendees’ work days.
“Our desire is to provide the owners and managers with whom we deal on a daily basis with an opportunity to enhance their business skills in an efficient and yet sophisticated manner,” said Pat Comunale, President of Tri-Ed Northern Video Distribution. “There has been considerable discussion in the industry about this training void and, after much research and consideration, we are confident that this solution meets the primary needs of our dealer base.”
A pilot presentation has already been made to a select group of dealers. “The response was overwhelmingly positive,” notes Paul Swan, Tri-Ed’s VP Sales & Marketing. “We are anxious to get this program into the market and are targeting an early November timeframe for the kick-off.”
Added Swan: “Tri-Ed has a long standing relationship with Jim (Brown) through some of his prior positions and we appreciate the insight and integrity that he brings to this role. “This new program is more clear evidence of our commitment to our dealers.’”
