"Developing Your 2021
Presented by Greg Coyne,
Sandler Training/Gerry Weinberg & Associates
Whether you are an individual contributor or a business owner, your 2021 success is dependent on how well you can pivot, plan and execute! Come to this session to learn how to adjust your strategy, structure your goals and build your action plans to grow. 2021 we should strive to thrive not just survive!
Presenter Greg Coynehas been actively involved with Southfield-based Gerry Weinberg & Associates-Sandler Training since 2009. He has an additional 10+ years of success in Leadership, Management & Business Development. He has helped a wide variety of companies; whose presidents and other leaders were worried that their companies were not getting them the results they wanted. They were frustrated with themselves that they were leaving money on the table, by giving information to prospects that used it to buy from their competition; and worried that with these issues, their business wouldn’t give them a solid exit plan. Through Greg’s help, his clients learn how to use a system to build a business, uncover blind spots they didn’t even realize they had, and stop wasting valuable time with prospects they will never do business with.

"The Power of Podcasting and
Why You Should Start One"
Presented by Jan Griffiths, Gravitas Detroit
Podcasting is a growing and untapped opportunity. If you have a lot of passion and expertise on a specific topic, you should definitely consider hosting a podcast on that topic. If there’s a topic you are interested in but don’t know much about, consider starting an interview-based podcast and invite other experts to share their advice on your show!

“Developing Your 2021 Success Plan”
Presented by Greg Coyne, Sandler Training/Gerry Weinberg & Associates
This program is free, and I would love to see you on the Zoom webinar. Register HERE.
Thanksgiving is behind us and we have certainly counted our blessings. MSE Detroit is so privileged to have a foundation of 31 years supporting us. A pandemic did not weaken our spirit, but instead has caused us to join together to help each other get through this crucial time. I heard a member say the other day that we have made it this far in our profession, and we will make it well beyond, because we know so much more today about how to continue to succeed (adding with a chuckle….with the help of Zoom).
Christmas and the New Year are fast approaching. Hearing Christmas music does lift the spirit. One song in particular should be our official song. The lyrics seem to be spot on. See if you agree with me...
Until we connect again, please be well and be safe..
