Trade Secrets for Marine Service Managers

(Essential Management Tools for Skilled Technicians)


2:00 to 5:00    Consultation/Workshop (Quadrant Marine Headquarters)

5:00 to 7:00    Social networking, Stonehouse Pub (drinks and appies)

We’re designing a new course curriculum to help train marine service managers for local BC recreational and small craft businesses. Join us and tell us:

1.      What do managers in this industry need to know?

2.     What causes you the most frustration?

3.     What management resources could save your company money?

From the information we gather in these consultation sessions, Quadrant Marine Institute will develop hands-on workshops to test our our new curriculum. Let us know if you’re interested in taking part in the test workshops, and we will send you an invite when we’ve set the date.

Following this project, we will regularly offer this new course to BC marine service managers. Your valuable contribution and feedback at this stage will go directly into improving the industry; we appreciate all your input.
