Faber-Castell < PROMOTIONAL PRODUCT DISTRIBUTORS ON MALLORCA SUCCESSFUL ENTREPRENEUR SEMINAR This year’s Entrepreneur Forum for promotional product distributors was held at Hotel Bendinat on the island of Mallorca in late February. As the event previously organised by the bwg association was no longer planned under the umbrella of the new GWW, eight distributors working in partnership organised the seminar for the first time on their own this year. The main topics of the threeday training course were effectiveness, efficiency and good time management. Like every year, the focus was particularly on communication. Among other things, important trade issues were discussed and debated. The seminar host and former CEO of bwg, Joachim Schulz, summed up: “The seminar was a tremendous success. The beneficial exchange of ideas and information during the day-long programme and the sunny evening hours in which personal contacts within the industry were cultivated were well received and were very worthwhile.” The Entrepreneur Forum on the island of Mallorca is to take place at the same time next year. “All promotional product distributors are again invited to participate in the seminar,” says Joachim Schulz.
