WEBINAR: Creating a Dead Stock Plan
October 4, 2016
1:00pm – 2:00pm Central

Presenter:  Jason Bader, Owner/ Senior Consultant, The Distribution Team

For the wholesaler-distributor, dead stock just happens.  It tends to be one of the most universal challenges in our industry.  Many of us take half-hearted stabs at reducing the amount – usually in times of low cash flow.  What we really need is a plan of action to turn these captive dollars into investable cash.  In this session, participants will learn how to identify their current dead inventory, prevent new streams of dying product and create a long term strategy to unlock trapped cash.
