You are invited to the third seminar of the EBC Seminar Series on Running Your Business Successfully. Many owners and leaders of professional services firms have strong technical skills.

They are also open to upcoming leaders who want to learn more about the business. The series is moderated by Liz Levin, President of Liz Levin & Company.
In the first two seminars we looked at two of the important basics for running your business successfully.
