Two love-centered business retreats will be taking place in the Philadelphia area this February.

DillonMarcus, a consulting firm in Cherry Hill, N.J., that created a business curriculum built upon the idea of love, is offering both retreats. The first, taking place Feb. 3 at the Beneficial Bank’s Training Center, is called Unstoppable Selling and will focus on instructing sales people to be missionaries of help.

The second, Creating Loyal, Loving Fans for Life, will be held Feb. 12 at the Citizens Bank Park. This retreat, created in partnership with Tom Burgoyne (known for his portrayal of Philadelphia Phillie’s Phillie Phanatic) will teach attendees to ask the question, “What if your customers loved you the way people love the Phillie Phanatic?” Seven loyalty fundamentals will be shared.  

“We visit great companies with our SoundingBoard CEO group and we see the direct correlation that being loving has on business results,” says Evan Marcus, partner, DillonMarcus. “We get such a positive reaction to our programs because most people see the value—the long-term payoff—in doing the right thing.”

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
