Wednesday, February 27, 2002
Feb. 26, 2002 - Tom Crouser, a leading consultant to the printing industry is headlining a series of educational workshops designed to help printers learn how to revive profits in a sagging economy. The workshops will be held in eight major U.S. cities from March to June this year. The workshops, titled "Prospering in the New Economy" are sponsored by ACE - an Alliance of Consultants and Educators for the printing industry, PrintSmith Management Software and are endorsed by PrintImage International and Printing Industries of America. "This workshop will help printshop owners and managers move beyond survival and start putting more money to the bottom line," said Tom Crouser, facilitator and Principal of Crouser & Associates. "Believe it or not, it is possible to make money and have fun in this business." According to a recent PIA flash report, more than 1,700 printshops closed their doors in 2001 resulting in more than 60 thousand lost jobs. "We don't want to see this trend continue," said Tawnya Starr, presenter and CEO of PrinterPresence. "If printers attend this workshop and apply the concepts we present, we guarantee results." Seminar attendees will get a step-by-step plan for prospering in a presentation by Crouser entitled, "Steps 1-4: Awakening, Finance, Organization and Battleground Issues." Crouser will also provide information on Transition, Raising Rich Kids and Important Challenges in Life. Starr will review successful, cost-effective sales and marketing techniques and teach printshop owners how to utilize the Internet and other technology to increase revenue and save money.
