Give Your Business
the Gift of a Fresh Approach
Symposium Is Your Opportunity to Relax, Recharge, Renew
Experts will tell you that to move your business forward you occasionally have to step back to gain a new perspective on how your company operates. This principle embodies the 2018 CGA Independent Operators Symposium.
We’ve created an atmosphere conducive to stepping away from your day-to-day operation. You will relax, recharge and gain important perspective on building a successful business strategy for the coming year.
You’ll hear topic experts share “aha” ideas and concepts to grow your company, discuss challenges and opportunities with other business owners and connect with industry insiders that will help you conceptualize the bigger goals of building your business.
Take the step back to move your business forward. You will come away with a renewed spirit and fresh ideas that will benefit your business for years to come!
We’ll see you in Hawaii!
We’ve assembled an impressive line-up of well-respected experts to address some of the key opportunities and challenges facing today’s independent grocery sector.
Each educational session is designed to be informative and interactive, with ample time for dialogue and to share best practices. You’ll return from the symposium with fresh ideas and a renewed drive that will improve your business model for years to come.
