In my 45 years of banking I have always believed that business owners, CFOs and operations personnel who participate in continuing education are far more likely to have high performing companies than those who don’t.
This philosophy is part of the reason The Business Bank of Texas, N.A. is committed to having a strong online business resource center.
We don’t plan on stopping with online business resources though. Many of our business experts who participate in our online Business Resource Center are providing continuing education classes on a regular basis for various organizations around Central Texas.
Several weeks ago, Sam and Leslie Thacker, who are both contributors to the Business Bank of Texas, N.A. Business Resource Center taught a class sponsored by the Texas State Small Development Center and the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce on the state of banking and lending in Central Texas.
This week, another contributor, Francoise Luca taught a two hour class for the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce on how to design and create a brochure for business owners.
Another contributor, Jan Triplet, Ph.D. who has been helping small businesses with sales and finance in Central Texas for almost 30 years as CEO of the Business Success Center testified before the State of Texas’ Senate’s Economic Development Committee about the small business climate in Texas this week. I feel confident that our state senators listened to her.
Lastly, tomorrow, Friday September 17, 2010 contributor Philip Campbell CPA and I will be joining another CPA to teach an eight hour continuing education class for CPAs involved in the construction industry for the Construction Financial Management Association of Central Texas
Nearly all of our Business Resource Center contributors are available to present their area of expertise to groups that may benefit from their presentations. In nearly every case, all you have to do is ask! You can find any of our contributor’s email addresses on their biography pages. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org.
