Capelli to ‘help build business’
Motivational speaker Glenn Capelli will provide Wimmera audiences with fresh ideas to help build better businesses during a visit to Horsham next month.
Mr Capelli will host two workshops on September 20 as a guest of Business Horsham.
His ‘Five Alive: Working smarter in a crazy world’ session will be at Coughlin Park Community Centre from 8.30am to noon.
The session will explore how more businesses have failed because of poor leadership and management than the state of the economy.
It will also address how businesses need more than a good idea to be innovative.
Mr Capelli’s ‘The Community Playground: Learn how to build better relationships’ session will look at how ‘poor communication costs time and money, strong communication saves time and tears’.
The community session will be in Horsham Town Hall from 7pm to 8.30pm.
Business Horsham executive administrator Wendy Mitchell said Mr Capelli’s visit would be the organisation’s major event for 2017.
“Each year we are challenged to bring to Horsham a major motivational speaker to help to inspire, encourage, motivate and reinvigorate business owners and managers,” she said.
“As always we also make the best effort to engage the general community.”
