“Let’s face it. No one is perfect. We should always be in a constant state of awareness for improvement. No matter how good your tactics may be in generating catering sales, you need to take this course. Why? Because you’ll definitely learn something new. Something you hadn’t thought of before, a new angle, a good-habit forming practice… something. Knowledge is Power. Why rob yourself of improvement/power? You want more money, don’t you?”- Ken Rojas, Corporate Regional Catering Sales Manager, Schlotzsky’s
