THEMA: Building Relationships through Bonding & Rapport


Ken Seawell began his career at Hyatt Hotels after receiving a Bachelors of Arts in Hotel and Restaurant Management from Florida State University.  Ken started as a management trainee and over the next ten years and thirteen promotions mastered the art of hospitality.  Marriage and a beautiful new daughter created an opportunity for a new career.  Working for Dayton Hudson’s food division in Minnesota, and ultimately in Michigan, allowed Ken to master another level of hospitality.


Seeking new challenges led Ken to start a consulting company.  For over fifteen years Ken assisted his clients in developing better business practices that led to increased sales, increased profits and increased peace of mind.  Ken believes strongly that through coaching and training business owners can have a confident expectation of a brighter future.


As a successful consultant and business coach, Ken continued to assess his own strengths and weaknesses.  Realizing that a stronger sales process was needed, Ken reached out to Erik Meier with Sandler Training to help him build that stronger selling process.  In doing so, Ken found a new passion:  sales training.  In 2013, Ken joined EAM Consulting Group as Managing Partner.  Ken’s new task is to build the EAM Consulting Group into the premier destination for those dedicated to building benchmark sales teams.

Speaker: Tina Georgieva

Topic:  Introduction of Women Owned Small Business Federal Contracting Program

So, you’re a woman and you run a business.  When compared to privately held firms, women-owned businesses employ 13 percent of the workforce and account for 11 percent of all business revenue.  However, in the pool of privately-held small businesses in this state, being a woman business owner actually has many advantages.  A decade in the making, in 2011, the federal government finally but in place the Federal Contracting Program for Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB).  The program authorizes federal government purchasing agencies to set aside a certain amount of federal contracts (at least 5 percent) for eligible women-owned small businesses and has already helped many women-owned businesses get an edge.  This presentation will show you how you can position yourself to benefit from it;  it will also show you the steps you need to take to make your company eligible to pursue new business opportunities by winning government contracts.
