Industry Group Calls the Session 'An MRI For Your FBO'
The National Air Transportation Association's (NATA) FBO Success Seminar Series will head to Dallas, Texas, September 12-14, with an emphasis on improving the vital parts of an FBO operation. The seminar will be hosted by The Business Jet Center, and is the first time an FBO Success Seminar will be hosted by an FBO facility.
"Seeking operational help for an FBO is no different than seeking medical help for an illness," said John Enticknap, president of Aviation Business Strategies Group (ABSG) and facilitator for the seminar. "Sometimes we need a closer look at all the vital parts in order to come up with a remedy that puts us on the path to prosperity. That's why we call it an MRI for Your FBO."
Enticknap explained that the seminar, aimed at FBO owners, operators, managers and financial personnel, utilizes a well-balanced, three-pronged approach to doing vital discovery work.
According to Enticknap, the MRI three-letter acronym stands for the following:
- M = Maximizing Profits
- R = Reducing Expenses
- I = Improving FBO Productivity and Bottom-Line Performance
In addition to the 10 sessions addressing financial and operational productivity, the seminar places an emphasis on networking with other FBOs and learning various best practices through lively roundtable discussions. Business Jet Center will also conduct a tour of their facility, allowing attendees an opportunity to see first-hand the inner workings of this highly successful FBO.
