Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 11, 2009
At a recent meeting at the University of Texas Club in Austin Texas, Garry Meier presented on the topic “Small Business Playbook for the New Economy”, highlighting the current affect of the Stimulus Bill on small business and sharing the top ten best practices for small business executives to create wealth and prosper in the new economy.
The presentation was part of a Continuing Education Seminar for business advisors including CPAs and consultants and was also attended by small business owners.
“In 2009 and beyond, wealth will be created for ‘perform businesses’ that are the most productive and cost efficient, promote and excel at change management, and focus on being REALLY good at a few things (i.e. customer satisfaction),” remarked Garry Meier, Achilles Group Chairman.
Garry Meier discussed in detail:
1. The Impact of the American Recovery & Investment Act 2009 on Small Business
2. Small Business State of the Union & Future Forecast
3. Research Findings on "High Performance Workforce Attributes of Small Businesses” (a research survey of small business executives)
4. Required Actions for the Small Business Executive in The New Economy
Garry also addressed avoiding common mistakes, Management Scorecard Best Practices, and the need for outside advisory support both for expertise and to drive change.
“Prosperity and economic growth has no doubt been suspended for the near future. Small businesses that prosper will illustrate unique business models that add significant value to the consumer. Change is upon us and those that embrace it and make it an asset will enjoy opportunistic times," said Garry Meier.”
