Chamber Sponsors "Penny Saved" Workshop

The Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce along with Volunteer State Community College is presenting a workshop next month focusing on how to keep more of your money and improve your financial bottom line. The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, June 15 at the Leslie Town Centre. Registrants may choose to attend either the morning session from 9 a.m. until noon or the afternoon session from 1 until 4 p.m. Organizers say presenter Richard Britnell has significant management experience and will discuss how to use a repeatable problem solving method to improve business methods by removing waste and errors. Participants will learn to identify financial savings from process improvement efforts in various businesses, as well as how small losses can quickly add to significant financial impacts on the bottom line. They will learn how large and small businesses solve process failures with a repeatable problem solving approach. Other topics to be covered include process improvement, brainstorming and change management. The cost is $69 for Chamber members and $79 for non-members.
