SAF’s 1-Day Profit Blast in Philadelphia, sponsored by DVFlora on Saturday, March 25, packs design, sales, technology and management education into an 8-hour program, along with a Supplier Showcase. In addition, the program offers a low registration fee ($139 early-bird for members and $99 for each additional registrant from the same company), enticing shop owners to bring several staff members.
Marsha Jones of Littleton’s Woodlawn Floral in Littleton, Colorado, attended SAF’s 1-Day Profit Blast in Denver last October and brought four members of her staff. “It’s important that everyone is on the same page,” Jones said, “and everyone is impacted by different presentations.”
Lisa and Brad Golter of Longmont Florist in Longmont, Colorado, brought five team members to the Denver event. Lisa said that investment paid off. “They all agreed it was worth giving up their time to learn more about the topics provided,” she said.
