The key to many successful businesses is their understanding of the role of operations. The ability to tie essential business functions, like finance, marketing and sales together, through an efficient operations approach, can lead to better bottom-line profits, improved inventory control and improved efficiency throughout the organization, states Kevin Brode of Kevin Brode & Associates, who will be presenting the next seminar at the Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce on August 24.

Brode has 25 years of experience at the corporate level with Fortune 500 organizations including Proctor & Gamble and Bristol-Meyers Squibb. Topics for this session are Order-to-Cash-Cycles, Map and Improve Workflow Processes, Customer Service Mentality, and more.

The Carolina Foothills Chamber of Commerce has completed the marketing, finance, and sales seminars, and the series has been enthusiastically received by attendees, organizers say. Brodies seminar on Tuesday will be the fourth in the series.

The fifth seminar, Business Planning, will be presented by Stacey Lindsay of Carolina First Bank on September 7. Sessions are from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
