Atlanta, Ga. – An innovative series of national events kicks off September 18 as Crown Financial Ministries and HOPE International brings its “New Normal” Entrepreneur’s Conferences to Durham, North Carolina, offering insightful advice and inspiration to those doing the real work in America. The aim of the one-day conference is to give business people tools, tips, tricks and training for successfully adjusting to the current marketplace.
“Building a successful business is about laying the right foundation and striving for the best practices,” said Crown Financial Ministries CEO Chuck Bentley. “Microsoft took off during a recession because the ideas and vision were in place. There was a need no one recognized and they moved to fill it. Crown and our conference partners want to give those insights to today’s business leaders.”
Attention Durham, North Carolina, Participants: Register on-line by Sept. 11, 2012, for the Sept. 18, 2012, event for an early registration promotion.
Crown Financial Ministries President Robert Dickie III said that the conference features business leaders who have put key industry concepts into practice in successful businesses of their own.
“This will be real world advice from people who know how to balance the books,” said Dickie, who was recently featured at FoxNews (http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/08/19/8-mistakes-make-that-lead-to-unsatisfying-work/), talking about Crown’s Career Direct®, a skills analysis program developed over the course of 10 years to help people identify their inherent talents and abilities.
