Out of an abundance of caution around COVID-19 and with a focus on protecting the health and safety of our employees and clients, we are modifying our upcoming events schedule. Please visit aeulead.com/coronavirus for more information and a detailed list of affected events.
Our team conducts online and in-person events throughout the year. We are also available to speak at conferences and seminars.
In 2020, AEU LEAD is running a five-part webinar series for company owners, executives, and decision makers, breaking down the topic of Strategic Planning and Operational Change Management.
Change and the management of change are synonymous with success for today's organizations. Consider the following:
The stakes have never been higher. Companies that experience a major stall in growth have a 10% chance of fully recovering. Small businesses (500 or fewer employees) account for 99.7% of all U.S. companies. Categorically, these organizations are most at-risk, as two-thirds of stalled companies are ultimately acquired, taken private, or forced into bankruptcy.
During the registration process, you will make your selection of which webinar(s) you'd like to attend.
Dates and themed topics of webinar series are as follows:
