Cash flow is the lifeline of a business, yet it remains a mystery for many and is often confused with profits. For example, it’s not unusual for a company to be profitable and have negative cash flow – a situation most business owners at some time experience and have no idea why. 
The One Percent Solution will provide an overview of company cash flow and explain the seven levers that effect cash flow from operations and show how a small change in any one lever can have a large impact on company cash flow. Attendees receive an Excel Financial Scorecard and Budget Plan to help monitor and manage company cash flow.

Leadership with
Less Stress

Dr. Annika Sorensen

Stress is today the most common cause for sick leave. Everyone knows it but nobody does anything because the problem is seemingly so large. "If we don't tell, no one will notice" they´ll say. And we are talking about mental stuff. Who wants to be connected with mental stuff? This is a real no-no today, especially in the tough business world.

Dr. Annika has found an answer- stress is part of life. Taking things down to earth makes it both fun and easy to tackle, piece by piece, defeating the stress. When you know how – and Dr. Annika will show you, it's easy!

In this session you will get the What, the Why, the Where, the When and the How to beat stress before it beats you!

Dr. Annika Sorensen is an Amazon Bestselling Author, Medical Doctor, Stress Management Mentor, and International Speaker on topics revolving around the successes brought by less stress including financial and business success.

She specializes in health and stress strategies and has a solid background in Swedish Public Health Care for 30 years.

With both clinical and scientific knowledge about the subject, she made it to ABC, MyNetworkTV, FOX, and twice to TEDx. She is also officially certified by The Big Talk Academy, and the author of two top-rated books on stress management "Take Stress from Chaos to Calm" and "My De-Stress Diary." 

Today Dr. Annika is helping busy business leaders slow down, reflect, and then ramp up and get more done and create bigger success without having to work harder.
