Is the Management Institute Worth Your Time?

Alvaro Crespo, Lihmil, Inc.

Alvaro Crespo of Lihmil, Inc. counts down the many reasons why you should attend the 2016 Management Institute August 3 - 5 in Rosemont, IL.


How to Prepare for Wedding Season

Technology Trends for 2016

Jacque Sir Louis, Smithers-OASIS

Business is led by the speed of the consumer, so no wonder the rate of change in retail and wholesale business is swift. Innovation, collaboration and managing change are in many article and book titles. This need for speed is to keep pace with the consumer. Jeff Bezos may have summarized best with his three reasons that Amazon is successful – customer first, invent, be patient. That said, here are the five technologies that will further define 2016.


Excitement for Easter!

Kim Kashman, Syndicate Sales

Easter is a holiday full of celebration! It marks the time of year when we begin transitioning from the chilly, snowy, dreary winter months into warming temperatures, budding trees, colorful landscapes and pastel palettes. It is a sort of renewal, if you will. There is renewed excitement for all things fresh, bright, and up lifting—an ideal time for the floral industry!


Helping your Florist Make the Most of Prom Sales

Tom Figueroa, Nordlie, Inc.

One of the most important tasks to help your florist build on Prom Sales is to strategize with them early. Prom season used to be end of May and early June but now prom can take place as early as April in some areas. The problem: it falls right around Mother’s Day - our busiest time of the year. Here are some tips to assist your florist with the bustling Prom season.
