Central Library to Host "Boost Your Sales" Program for Small Business Owners on April 27


Sales is the most crucial function of a small business. No matter what kind of goods or services a small business produces, the sales of these good and services is the single greatest determinant of the amount of revenue the small business can expect to generate. Without sufficient revenue, a small business cannot survive for very long. So, if sales are flat, or worse, in decline, this should be an alarm to the business owner to take action and investigate ways to improve the situation before it becomes irreparable.

Are you a small business owner or entrepreneur who is concerned about your sales performance? If so, please plan to attend “Boost Your Sales,” a program aimed at providing you with both a new slant to your sales approach and ideas for crafting a more effective sales plan. The program will be held from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, 2016, in the Arrington Auditorium located on the fourth floor of the Central Library’s Linn-Henley Research Building. The seminar is free, but registration is required. To register, please visit the Birmingham SCORE website and click on the seminar title in the Upcoming Events section.

The program presenter is Octavia Kuransky, founder and principal trainer for the Go Sales Group. With a background in psychology and business, Kuransky is concerned with treating the whole business person. She is currently a part-time instructor in the Jefferson State Community College’s Department of Corporate and Community Education. She has made presentations for the Fairfield Career Development Center, the University of Alabama-Huntsville, and facilitated training for employees of the Alabama Power Company. Kuransky is also the former program manager for the SBA funded Central Alabama Women's Business Center.

This event is one of several programming collaborations between the Birmingham Public Library (BPL) and the local office of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives). For more information about public programs and other resources for small business development available at BPL, please contact Jim Murray of the Central Library’s Business, Science and Technology Department by e-mail at jmurray@bham.lib.al.us or by calling 205-226-3691.
