Join Paul Saginaw, co-founder and CSO of Zingerman’s, and Tabitha Mason, Managing Partner, Zingerman’s Cornman Farms, for a deep dive into the concept of Open Book Management, a solid, ethically-oriented program designed to help manage a company through all kinds of economic circumstances, reduce leadership stress, and get the whole team on board to make financial success an activity everyone participates in. Learn three steps to great finance and using them in a catering and events business, as well as how Zingerman’s “keeps score.”
Financial transparency creates buy-in from staff at all levels: there's no "us" and "them" in Open Book—we all work together to make success happen. No more financial surprises, either—everyone knows what is happening with the business. Finally, utilizing forecasting as a proactive approach to addressing opportunities and challenges before they occur, your company will no longer have to solve problems in the moment.
Each workshop participant will receive a workbook, including examples of Zingerman's staff training materials.
Note: This is part two of a series that started at 8:30. You are welcome to join this session at any time, however. There will be one 15 minute break after this session (at about 10:15)
