Atlanta, Ga. – January 8, 2013 – An innovative series of national events continues in February as Crown Financial Ministries and HOPE International bring their “New Normal” Entrepreneur’s Conference to Birmingham, Ala., offering insightful advice and inspiration to those doing the real work in America. The aim of the one-day conference is to give business leaders tools and training for successfully adjusting to the current marketplace to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit that made America great. The conference will be held Tuesday, February 19, at Birmingham’s Cahaba Grand Conference Center.
“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.”
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.com 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.
More than 10 speakers and authors from different industries will present detailed steps that area business leaders can implement.
Headlining the event is well-known speaker Mark A. Conklin, Senior Manager of Learning and Development of Chick-fil-A. With a degree from the Harvard Business School, Conklin develops initiatives for Chick-fil-A that grow the leadership abilities of the company’s employees. Developing skills in others was also key to Conklin’s time as a Dean of Students at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix and during his six years in the U.S. Army, during which he was primarily based in West Germany.
Special discounts are available for groups and non-profit employees and students with proper identification. For a complete list of speakers and to register for the event, go to: www.entrepreneursconference.org.
