Member Program

Planning for Profits on What You Have

11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Hennepin Technical College
Gourmet Dining Room
9000 Brooklyn Blvd.
Brooklyn Park, MN 55445

Join us for an informative presentation on Planning for Profits by Melvin Enger, CPA, President of Carlson Advisors. It is common that the planned solution for many companies to reach adequate profitability levels is simply increased sales. We all know that is easier said than done. Furthermore, increased sales does not always guarantee adequate profitability. This program will focus on profit planning without relying on increased sales including identifying top issues, budgeting, communicating expectations, creating management tools and reporting systems, monitoring ongoing results, and more. The basic premise of this presentation is that every company has enough volume to achieve adequate profits. Join us for the conversation!
