“As business owners, it is our responsibility to provide life-saving, foundational education to our employees,” says The Growth Company, an Avitus Group Company’s Senior Consultant and Trainer Scott Stender. “We want our employees to go home safely to their families each night after work. When businesses and organizations provide critical trainings such as active shooter, it empowers employees and provides a safer world for all of us.”
Avitus Group, via a partnership with The Growth Company, is launching a new service nationwide and in Alaska called Avitus Professional Acceleration in January 2018. Foundational education is a critical part of the service offerings under the new service, along with leadership and management training and training for individuals and teams.
“We are thrilled to offer our expertise to help launch this new Avitus Group service to the Alaska business community and beyond,” says The Growth Company, an Avitus Group Company’s Regional Director of Training and Business Consulting Lynne Curry. “We encourage the entire Alaska business community to become educated when it comes to active shooter situations.

Avitus Group and the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce’s Active Shooter Training is set for January 11, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at The Fireweed Business Center located at 725 E Fireweed Lane in Anchorage.

“This course expands on a well-received, but condensed version of the training we offered in October at our Make it Monday Forum,” says Anchorage Chamber of Commerce President Bruce Bustamante. “We highly encourage everyone with employees and a storefront to attend this session and to send your employees. This is the type of training that will save lives and keep our business community safe.”

If you’ve ever wondered what you can do to help in a situation where you may feel helpless, this is your chance. It is up to all of us to be informed and have the foundational knowledge required to survive such an unthinkable incident should it occur at your place of business or when you are out shopping at someone else’s place of business,” says Avitus Group Public Relations Manager Dianne Parker.
