Silver Tip

UBT Seminars

Secure your seats and help your cashflow!

Would you like to ensure you don’t miss out on this year’s UBT seminars? What about smoothing the cost of seminars throughout the year rather than paying for them in one shot as they come up? This new subscription does both of these things!

Annual Subscription Pricing (paid in monthly instalments)

  • Single Subscription - $375.00 + GST per month
  • Husband & Wife special - $575.00 + GST per month

Please Note: you can choose who to send to any seminar under this subscription!  For example; if you have a seminar subscription for 3 people, you can send 3 sales personnel to a sales seminar, and 3 finance/management personnel to a finance seminar. 
Or if for some reason none of your team can attend a seminar you could even send someone from another business. (Want to help a business that is struggling?! Why not buy a seminar subscription for them?!)

Silver Bullet

Unexpected successes do happen!

But although opportunities and surprises are often overlooked in standard reporting systems, they should be taken seriously.

Management at all levels of a business should write down, not just what went right and what went wrong but what happened that was unexpected.

Review the reports regularly, pick the best of the anecdotes and follow them up.

Run with them; they are likely to lead to remarkable results.
