HarryPounds Seminar

The outline of the program is well organized. Starting from the title itself Hiring
and Retaining High-Value Employees it is catchy and the target participants will
surely think that the topic from the seminar will be very useful not only for them but also
for the company in the long run. Also the seminar outline includes the description of the
seminar and who are the target participants. In that matter you can see already the real
purpose of the seminar. HarryPound Consultants Inc. are willing to give Take-Home
Materials that is useful during and after the seminar. The Take-Home Material became
their hook because their seminar is costly but the participants will get something they
can still use after the seminar.

It is also good to include the objectives and the topics that will be discussed.
Which is more convincing is the part when the company will tell who will be the Master
Trainer and what are the credentials of the Trainers and Speakers, since we all know
that people will be more convinced to attend the seminar if they will know partially who
are the Master Trainer or Speaker and their credentials.
