Welcome to The Business Owners Roundtable

oGoing hosts a monthly Business Owners Roundtable in Irvine to engage, inspire and connect our local business community in Orange County.


Powerful Customer Relationships for Growing your Small Business

Powering Customer Relationships - An Interactive Business Owners Roundtable. February 28, 2019

It's 2019! It's Time To Change How You Power Customer Relationships.

You're invited to our First Business Owners Roundtable of 2019.

We've planned a highly interactive session with a highly experienced speaker.

Powering Customer Relationships for Growing your Small Business – an Interactive Discussion

Through an interactive discussion around a growing business, the significance of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems for:

  • acquiring new customers,
  • retaining customers,
  • growing current customers, and
  • working with partners and channels
  • is driven home!

Small businesses can grow fast with such an information system to turn marketing to lead generation machines, monitor deals in progress, improve win rates, more predictably forecast demand, identify and quickly address problems before they get out of hand and more systematically and quickly on-board and bring new customer-facing staff up to speed.

If you are an entrepreneur or business owner growing your small business, you will take away insights around processes and systems to help prepare for and proactively manage growth, so it does not overwhelm your business and you as a leader.

Connect and Share Ideas on How To Profitably Build Customer Relationships
