St. Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
Paradigm Learning, a leader in learning innovation, has teamed up with the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce for an event that will help eight flamingos find a new home at Sunken Gardens and provide a great training opportunity for local businesses – Finance for Flamingos!
Finance for Flamingos, which will be held on Friday, September 26th, 2014, is a community event providing 100% of its proceeds to help Sunken Gardens purchase eight new flamingos. The event will feature the award-winning business simulation, Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy, normally reserved for participants at Fortune 500 & 1000 companies. In this board game-based simulation, teams will buy a business and operate it for three simulated years, honing their business acumen skills.
“I am thrilled to be able to work with the St. Petersburg Chamber and other community sponsors to offer Paradigm Learning’s business simulation, Zodiak®: The Game of Business Finance and Strategy, to our local business community,” says Raymond Green, CEO of Paradigm Learning. “For almost twenty years, Zodiak® has been used around the world by Fortune 500 & 1000 companies to develop the financial literacy and business acumen of their managers and employees. However, this powerful learning experience has not been widely available to smaller business owners and their staffs. We are happy to be conducting the Zodiak® simulation for Chamber members while also helping St. Petersburg's oldest tourist attraction replenish its flock of flamingos.”
Chris Steinocher, Chamber President & CEO, will kick-off the event, which will take place at The Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg from 8:00am until 3:00pm. Space is limited: register early! To register, visit stpete.com/financeforflamingos.
