Summary:  Now Underway: Crushing The Competition Retreats For Leaders and Teams but in a Enlightened Way, with a Heart…and Community and World View…The New Enlightened Business Model Designed For Long-Term Success.  Developed By A Social Enterprise Expert….It’s About Cause Marketing…Communication…Consultation…Customers…Competitor Intelligence…Then The Crush!

“Crush The Competition-Hug Your Customers-Embrace Your Community & The World” (The CHE Program) Retreat style experience and training has been launched by Bob Rempel, Business Consultant/Coach & Partners, to help business leaders and their teams win decisively at the competitive game, create far better strategy and tactics, and do it by using enlightened approaches, including Customer Engagement and Community/World Involvement.

The final program curriculum and choice of presenters is custom designed with attendees, however, Rempel, a 35 year business and non-profit leadership veteran from Canada, and social enterprise and cause marketing specialist, said we can announce now that a semi-comedic presentation on What Narcos TV  and Cartels Can Teach Us About Business & “Crushing The Competition”, which will lead into the Epilogue, also semi-comedic presentation, Crushing The Competition With Heart And Ethics, using additional examples from Navy Seals and the New England Patriots and many others will typically be part of the agenda.

20-20 Business Vision For The Year 2020 & Beyond, Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence, Keys To Making Your Business Customer Centric, Audience Not Content is King, Having Real Conversations with Customers, Turning Customers Into Fans and Advocates and Competitor Intelligence Strategies are also typically part of the curriculum program, he said, often in experiential ways. More details on content available upon request.

“The first thing we heard when we planning this is “””don’t just give us the same old stuff again that everyone else puts on year after year,”” said Rempel.   We heard, ””Get creative, give us interesting content, inspiring locations, make us laugh, let’s be truly experiential, and don’t isolate us from the local community.””  We heard more, of course, such “don’t abandon us after you’ve got us started on the right track…”

This is our intention, he said.  The Retreat fee also includes a minimum six-month contract and services arrangement with the client by the Rempel Team, Rempel said.  You might call it their own “VP of Competition Crushing” and partner in progress, he said.  We only win as consultants if we ensure that our Clients are truly successful with the strategy and tactics, (“crushin’ it so to speak”) and receive many times the value of their one time Retreat cost in revenues, reduced costs and enhanced image. That’s our team’s Customer Value and high ROI commitment, said Rempel.

The collaborative training and experiential 3, 5, or 7-day Retreats are custom styled for each Group, with locations and content providers to be set with Clients.  Attendance open to teams of 2 or more with the best value for groups of 10 plus.

Where clients have no preference, home base for the events is Ixtapa, Mexico, regarded as the “home of million dollar sunsets”, by Tourism officials.  A choice of full cultural immersion and palapa under the stars sleeping to 5-star beachside accommodations is offered. A CEO Only Leadership Networking and Strategies To Year 2020 Mastermind style event will also be held, in the next six months, with dates to be announced shortly.

The Retreat events are open to business participation worldwide.  The natural focus initially is on North America and Mexico, but we will be promoting it broadly as well to Asian businesses wishing to create networks with North American and Latin America enterprise.

“At this particular moment, our crack research staff has determined that there are 153,049 businesses or organization operating worldwide where the CEO or Board Chair just heard or saw a comment, “Our/Their business strategy sucks” or a key staff member was overheard commenting or texting “We’ve got good people but we can’t pull together as a team”, says Rempel.  

“Those numbers are with my tongue firmly planted in cheek he said.  It’s probably much, much higher. We’ve got room to grow”   

As part of our program launch and other promotional initiatives, we’ll soon be launching a Nominations page  where employees and friends of these struggling companies, and even the CEO himself or herself, can nominate companies, organizations, sports organizations, and non-profits who should be “crushing the competition” but for various reasons are not.  

“The training and experience have serious intent and lasting end results for the businesses who participate, but we promise much fun, other great experiences, and cultural immersion that will have a lasting impact on the individual team members.  It won’t be just another Retreat,” Rempel concluded, “or we’ve failed”.

Media representatives can contact us for more information by email:  bob@bobrempel.com or via Twitter @bobremp 

A further announcement will be made shortly on this site to announce the Business Nominations contest.

Make Warm Contacts, Warm Calls

makewarmcalls

Today I share a very basic but often overlooked method of building solid long term contacts. I’ve always hated cold calling. Selling at its worst, I felt. Most people are the same. [bctt tweet=”Never cold call again to steal a title from a sales book. Make warm calls.” username=”bobremp”]

My personal approach to it is simply look for current opportunities to contact specific individuals generally in your target markets where you can congratulate them on a recent positive announcement, promotion, even offer a referral. Make the connection by having something substantive to say, to offer.

Never ask for a purchase decision, even through referencing an event or a product you are working on it quite acceptable as long as it is part of the conversation. You’ll see opportunities in traditional media, in your social media and comments from friends and others. Phone or an email with appropriate non sales subject line work best. Reference other individuals you both know if appropriate.

Here is Chris “Kubby” Kubbernus’s article, “How To Make Warm Calls” and what he does. Follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisKubby

“Here is a very simple trick to make it rain.

Okay maybe it won’t rain cash-money upon you. I’m not magical, although someone did call me a wizard the other day. But this simple trick has helped me pick up new projects and keep revenue coming in.

You’ve heard of the cold call right? Well the warm call is just like that but…err warm. Let me explain. The warm call is about calling a prospect that you already have real contact with, at the right time. Here’s how I do it.

1.
I pay attention on social media. Is that prospect interacting with me or my company? Liking my posts, commenting? What are THEY posting on social. Can I comment?

2.
I make a call to them, a physical phone call – remember those? Phone calls might seem old school but they give you way more context and opportunity than email.

 

I typically get people on the phone right after lunch or early morning. Once on the call I make a light pitch, or I comment on something they’ve done. I deliver a clear, thoughtful and non-pushy message which basically says “If you need help in (insert your service), we can help and were doing it all ready for Company X, Y, and Z.

See no real magic here, just thoughtful and good communication. If you do this you’ll find people to be very receptive and you might sell something. Typically I end up a lot wiser than I was before the call because people will give you information such as new hires, perhaps they are changing roles soon, or when they are doing their budgeting etc… Make note of this information, the more informed you are the better position you’ll be in to create success.”

5 Great Reasons To Schedule A Summer Strategy Session For Your Business in Ixtapa, Mexico Now!

(View the additional Update to this Post, by clicking HERE)

Stop Please! Don’t Make All Your Summer Plans Just Yet! Are You Letting Your Business or Organization, Your Personal Brand, Your Team Building, and even your Relationship Slide Downhill?

5 Great Reasons To Schedule A Summer Strategy Session in Ixtapa, Mexico now!

CI_090224_127_1It’s summer time and the living should be easy. You’ve heard the song. Most of you don’t live in the land of the Endless Summer that some of us are blessed with, so the pressure to ease off a bit at work is there, and it should be.

You are driven to be successful, for your organization or team, your brand, your family, and yourself. I know that getting more customers, increasing revenue and helping your organization operate efficiently with value for the end user in mind always does not take the summer. For Owners, CEOs, Directors, Managers it’s almost always top of mind.

Or as an Athlete or Coach or GM in professional or amateur sport. The summer time is either Olympics time like this year, or it’s training camp or training time. Plus you’re swirling in the media and social media storm constantly.

Same for musicians, entertainers, actors, actresses, authors. You rarely get downtime. Work is constant. As well, you’re always in the public eye. Tremendous added pressure to anyone’s life.

Don’t ignore all the cross pressures, I suggest. Family and relationships and personal revitalization are essential to a stable existence that makes your whole life better.

Let me show a way you can have it all this summer.

I’m Bob Rempel, and I want to give you 5 reasons to come to Ixtapa, Mexico this summer and early fall for the best business and personal trip you’ll have in many a year. Plus we’re going to work together and build towards a great partnership. You’ll be joining our 20-20 Leaders’ with Vision program and exclusive network of individuals.

1. Amazing, Breathtaking Location with an all-inclusive 5 star Accommodations and Dining. An easy direct trip from Los Angeles and Houston and one stop from many other locations.

2. Romance and Relationship Renewal to the max with your partner. It’s for 2. Or alternatively we can make this a Team event for your business or organization. Strategy, team building, rejuvenation all in one

3. Add ons to the trip that suit you: Laptop and school supply donations to local school classes, cultural immersion, view business and investment opportunities in MX, special local tequila & coffee tastings,Spanish lessons, and much more. Flexibility is key.

4. 4+ hours over 3 days planning strategy together to increase customers and revenues for your business or non profit or 4+ hours training with us on how to master social media with a proactive strategy. Plus more our prep time prior to our meetings and for summary and next steps after the meetings. More flexibility here of course to find the right combination of personal and business time.

5. Value pricing. You’re not the kind of person who usually asks the price first, any ways but you do want good value at the end of the day. So you should.

This is a Beyond Platinum all inclusive personal and business trip. When you add in the value of new customers the strategies we develop will obtain, or the enhancement of your personal or business brand, you might even think you should pay us double.

I’ll be waiting to see you. Our Summer 2016 Strategy & Training promotion ends on September 30.

This is a $10,000 usd total dollar value package for two people with flights and hotel from Los Angeles or Houston. However, the first 10 groups of 2 people, booked by July 1, can take advantage of our special Summer Strategy Session early mover discount and get the package for $6,000.00 usd.

This Dream Coaching Package For Your Business & Life Is Reality!

We Believe The Future of Business Is Social Enterprises

RedAdairOne of my business heroes is a firefighter.  A very specialized fire fighter.   Red Adair was his name.  He capped and halted oil well fires around.   Oil well fires are very costly.  It’s a finite resource.  Oil is valuable and has a price per barrel.   Adair often still had a lot of questions and concern about his fees. His famous quote sticks in my mind:

“If you think it’s expensive to hire a professional to do this job, wait until you hire an amateur”

Einstein is often quoted (I suspect perhaps only literally and not reflecting his nuanced meaning and understanding of what it is) as “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.  

One of the most difficult types of business to build is a social enterprises because it has a dual purpose and leaders and manager have to have at least two minds active at all times.  The team is rarely strong enough, even exhausted and the ideas are often weak and resources minimal.

This is our call to action to Social Enterprises everywhere to build a stronger team, reinforce and strengthen your mission and purpose, and your commitment.  This is our call to action to friends and supporters of social enterprises to encourage them to take the steps they need to succeed.

It is always about keeping in sight the mission and purpose of the enterprise, even when revenues must be paramount to allow the organization to continue.  Without achievement on the mission front, any success on the business side is just hollow.  We truly want social enterprises to succeed.

Mindset Important:

My experience leading a social enterprise and my observation of many others tells me starts with believing in yourself as an organization, believing in your mission, believing in your people. In many cases, mindset is the most appropriate starting point for business renewal and revitalization.

Social Enterprises Viable Future Business Model:

Personally, and as a consulting organization, we’re very bullish about the future of social enterprises as a viable business model in our market economies.  Even as a glass half full model, we need more enlightened entrepreneurs, more entrepreneurs with a vision for the world we all live in together, and more governments and regulatory authority that reward and encourage businesses with both a social mission and purpose that work and play in the competitive environment.

RempelGroup.com Offers Social Enterprises Pro Bono Growth Program

At RempelGroup, we’re motivated to help grow social enterprises within our market economies where ever they are located. On Tuesday we announced that we had extended our offer to assist social enterprises with strategy, management, coaching, and marketing.  Selected social enterprises will receive assistance on a pro bono basis  and a full letter of engagement will govern how we work and how we will assist.

If you know a social enterprise, a business operating in a competitive environment with a social purpose, or a cause related project such as a music festival, sports or similar event, that can benefit from a greater degree of professionalism, strategy and tactics, please let them know about our program and share this post.

Extended: Social Enterprises Can Now Receive Free Coaching & Marketing Resources.
