Leadership seminar price reduced, United Way benefits

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A day long Dale Carnegie leadership seminar isn't only being offered at a reduced price, the money raised is going to the 2012 United Way of Greater Knoxville fund raising campaign.

Knoxville area businesses can send up to four employees to a day-long Dale Carnegie Leadership Seminar for less than a third of the standard cost - and the tuition paid goes directly to United Way of Greater Knoxville.

Dale Carnegie of Tennessee is partnering with Club LeConte to offer the program, “How to Communicate with Diplomacy and Tact,” on Wednesday, Dec. 12. The event also is open to individuals who want to improve their communications skills, again at a steeply discounted rate.

Participating businesses and individuals will reap more than good will. The daylong leadership training is ideal for anyone who interacts with the public - receptionists, customer service representatives, sales team members, and account executives - said Jim Christensen, corporate sales specialist at Dale Carnegie in Knoxville.

The corporate rate for four employees is $995; the individual rate is $250. The Dale Carnegie catalog price for the same seminar is $895 per person.

The cost includes lunch.* The seminar starts at 8:30 a.m. and wraps up at 5 p.m., followed by a two-hour reception at Club LeConte.

Seating is limited. To register, contact: Jim Christensen at 865-771-9745 or Jim.christensen@dalecarnegie.com
