Virtual Connect and Learn - Save Money and Time by Standardizing Your Procedures
October 2tth @12pm ET
Presented By: Joanna Beck
Companies focus on the big picture: increasing sales, lowering costs, and delivering products to market quickly. Unfortunately, it's the small things that hamper growth: a missed deadline here, a failed callback there. They all add up to frustration and are roadblocks to growth. Companies can be more effective and efficient by identifying and correcting the small issues that impact the big picture. This helps them better serve existing customers, reach new customers faster, and increase profits. Streamlined operations help companies grow quickly during robust economies and pivot faster during down times. Your business will run better and your business frustration will turn into more time for that vacation with your family or to enjoy a yoga class more than once a month.
Joanna Beck is frustrated by inefficiency and promises that don't deliver or solutions that don't work. She has endured companies that make it hard to solve customer problems and are only focused on themselves.
Joanna ventured out on her own to show that small changes can make big impacts. Entrepreneurs don’t have the bandwidth to change and improve operations, and her knowledge & experience makes a huge difference to their bottom line.
With broad experience in strategic planning, process improvement, and operations, Joanna started Beck Insights after spending her 20+ year career in project management, operations, and change management for large corporations.
