SAF Growth Solutions 2014 Follow-Up

June 12, 2014 at 11:32 AM


Growth Solutions 2014 in Chicago was another great educational event and networking event from the Society of American Florists.


This was the third time FloristWare has participated in the annual SAF Growth Solutions event. Each year it seems to get better.

The content is always excellent. Some of the highlights this year included sessions from Tim Huckabee of Floral Strategies, Derrick Myers of Crockett Myers, and Jim Dion.

Tim isn't just the industry leader in sales training – he invented sales training for the floral industry. Derrick Myers is probably the most recognized accountant in the floral industry and Jim Dion is a widely respected retail specialist. SAF is the best at bringing together the best educational contentThey are also amazing and gracious hosts and everyone who attends has a good time.

The highlight for us was meeting with many of our current users. Talking with them face-to-face, and seeing what they like about our POS software and how they use it in their flower shops every day is the single best way for us to come up with ways to make it better... something we are working on constantly.

The next event from SAF is their Annual Convention, taking place on Marco Island this August. More information can be found on our Industry Resources page.
