Erle Dardick believes the multi-unit restaurant industry is leaving billions of dollars on the table. So he outlined a clear solution for food businesses struggling to stay afloat or to grow during the recession in his new book, Get Catering and Grow Sales! A Strategic Perspective for the Multi-Unit Restaurant Executive. ´´I believe the fastest-growing source of revenue for restaurants will be catering,´´ asserts Dardick, a serial entrepreneur, ´´and I have no doubt it will be their most important revenue source during the next decade.´´ Dardick, the CEO of MonkeyMedia Software, a food industry consulting and software company, has helped his firm´s clients grow their revenue by embracing a catering strategy. Catering, which can be supplied to corporations, organizations or private individuals, can include off-premise drop-off catering with or without set-up services, or off-premise catering for pick-up. One´s catering strategy may even include altering menu selection, portion sizes, and the creation of a proprietary beverage. Many pitfalls and opportunities await those brands ready to incorporate a catering strategy. ´´This is a book about driving new and incremental sales for our community´s brands,´´ writes Dardick. ´´It´s about getting out a roadmap for the future of how our industry can come together as a group and use Get Catering and Grow Sales! as a compass for innovating as a community. It´s about leveraging our assets to maximize catering as a substantial revenue channel in the multi-unit restaurant environment.´´ All net proceeds of the audiobook´s sale are being donated to Share Our Strength, a charity dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. 1.

A new lens on growth and a critical set of strategies for navigating a complex world Growth is rarely in a straight line. It is tempting to think otherwise, particularly when looking in the rear view mirror, but anyone faced with plotting the coordinates for a company´s growth knows the fallacy of this notion. As much as we like to think of corporate leaders executing sure-fire growth strategies, the truth is far messier: it´s more an act of exploration and discovery than a step-by-step process. In Growth in the Age of Complexity, the authors describe in detail how complexity has impacted businesses and the markets in which they compete, and the strategies, mindsets, and skillsets required to grow profitably! New strategies are required to navigate the ´´Sirens of Growth´´: the growth plans borne of Industrial Age mindsets that too frequently lead to complexity vs. scale. In addition, companies need to develop an Explorer´s Mindset and a Navigator´s Skillset to sustain performance. You´ll discover how to: Assess where you´re truly making money Reignite your core products and services to drive growth Incorporate experimentation as a key way to discover new opportunities Create an operating model for scale, location, and replication Identify new markets where you are positioned to win Understand the fundamentals for executing in a distributed organization This book is an invaluable tool for achieving growth and maintaining a competitive advantage in virtually any business. 1.

As the title suggests, a driving, rhythmic pulse permeates throughout this contemporary original selection by Richard Meyer. The piece incorporates two diverse moods ? a highly rhythmic first section in B Minor, built on rising and falling thirds, followed by a simple chorale in folk song style presented first in the violins and then passed throughout the ensemble. As this slow section winds down, the energy is once again established with the re-introduction of earlier material. The chorale is then heard again, this time coupled with the energetic figures that started the piece. A great choice for your next concert or contest, Momentum provides a wide variety of outstanding teaching opportunities while using a fresh new sound that your students will love! (5:30)

What is nature worth? The answer to this question - which traditionally has been framed in environmental terms - is revolutionizing the way we do business. In Nature’s Fortune, Mark Tercek, CEO of The Nature Conservancy and former investment banker, and science writer Jonathan Adams argue that nature is not only the foundation of human well-being, but also the smartest commercial investment any business or government can make. The forests, floodplains, and oyster reefs often seen simply as raw materials or as obstacles to be cleared in the name of progress are, in fact as important to our future prosperity as technology or law or business innovation. Who invests in nature, and why? What rates of return can it produce? When is protecting nature a good investment? With stories from the South Pacific to the California coast, from the Andes to the Gulf of Mexico and even to New York City, Nature’s Fortune shows how viewing nature as green infrastructure allows for breakthroughs not only in conservation - protecting water supplies; enhancing the health of fisheries; making cities more sustainable, livable and safe; and dealing with unavoidable climate change - but in economic progress, as well. Organizations obviously depend on the environment for key resources - water, trees, and land. But they can also reap substantial commercial benefits in the form of risk mitigation, cost reduction, new investment opportunities, and the protection of assets. Once leaders learn how to account for nature in financial terms, they can incorporate that value into the organization’s decisions and activities, just as habitually as they consider cost, revenue, and ROI. A must-listen for business leaders, CEOs, investors, and environmentalists alike, Nature’s Fortune offers an essential guide to the world’s economic - and environmental - well-being. 1.
