Small Business Banking Series in Greater Kansas City

So… What Do You Do? What’s Your 10-Second Commercial?

When meeting people for the first time, why do we struggle with explaining what we do in 10 seconds or less? Join our featured speaker, Dan Stalp of Sandler Training, for this highly interactive session where participants will:

  • Build intrigue when someone asks, “What do you do?”
  • Be more clear about the types of people/companies who qualify as good candidates for your business; and
  • Learn how to set strong verbal agreements with those who qualify for follow-up after meeting someone.

Dan Stalp has over 26 years of experience leading, training, and coaching high performing individuals. He has risked everything and completely started over twice career-wise, once in 1993 and again in 2005 by co-founding and founding his own firm. Dan has co-authored two books, “The Reunion” and “Antoerh Reunion,” about career significance and how pursuing what you were “meant to do” – along with always being grateful – plays an instrumental role in being the best you can be.

When not being mistaken for a certain Hollywood movie star, Dan and his wife Lisa of 28 years travel to Dallas, TX and Fayetteville, AR to visit their two grown daughters. Or they are attending rugby and lacrosse events for their high school and college aged sons.

This first session will be held Wednesday, May 29, 2019 from 11:30am to 1:00pm at the Regnier Center of Johnson County Community College (12345 College Blvd, Overland Park, KS – Room 270). This class is open to the public and registration includes lunch.

Space is limited. Registration is required. Please visit the event site* to reserve your spot today. 

Generously sponsored by Arvest Bank and hosted by the Kansas SBDC at JCCC, this workshop is the first of a 4-part Small Business Growth Lunch & Learn series*. The series will be an opportunity for small business owners and resource partners to network, share best practices, and learn from industry experts. Each session will feature a presenter on a different small business topic.

Links marked with * go to a third-party site not operated or endorsed by Arvest Bank, an FDIC-insured institution.

 

*Participants do not need to attend all four sessions.

Arvest Bank is pleased to announce the addition of Tara Flackus, Associate Mortgage Loan Officer.

Tara will have a primary focus on serving communities in Gardner, Ottawa and those in-between. She is dedicated to providing a great customer experience by becoming the resource her clients need and trust.

Tara is no stranger to delivering quality work under pressure. Originally from New York, she joined the Air Force after high school and began a career in fixing medical equipment. Following a tour in Germany she returned to the states to become an instructor in the DoD military course teaching medical maintenance to Army, Navy and Air Force recruits.

In early 2018, Tara decided to end the healthcare chapter and focus on another adventure – motherhood and mortgage lending.

Tara and her husband stay busy managing work schedules and attempting to keep up with their three children – ages 10, 5 and 3 – and two dogs.

Thank you for your service and welcome to Arvest, Tara!
