Two love-centered business retreats will be taking place in the Philadelphia area this February.

DillonMarcus, a consulting firm in Cherry Hill, N.J., that created a business curriculum built upon the idea of love, is offering both retreats. The first, taking place Feb. 3 at the Beneficial Bank’s Training Center, is called Unstoppable Selling and will focus on instructing sales people to be missionaries of help.

The second, Creating Loyal, Loving Fans for Life, will be held Feb. 12 at the Citizens Bank Park. This retreat, created in partnership with Tom Burgoyne (known for his portrayal of Philadelphia Phillie’s Phillie Phanatic) will teach attendees to ask the question, “What if your customers loved you the way people love the Phillie Phanatic?” Seven loyalty fundamentals will be shared.  

“We visit great companies with our SoundingBoard CEO group and we see the direct correlation that being loving has on business results,” says Evan Marcus, partner, DillonMarcus. “We get such a positive reaction to our programs because most people see the value—the long-term payoff—in doing the right thing.”

Built in the vision of streamline modernism and art deco in 1941, the Vogue Theatre has become a hotspot in the heart of Vancouver’s entertainment district—a region known for its progressive hospitality and historic charm. “It’s a national registered historic site in Canada,” says Matt Friesen, general manager of the theater. While it is primarily a concert venue hosting artists such as Steve Lacy and Steve Earle & The Dukes, the Vogue’s nearly 10,000 square feet of space and mission to offer the utmost friendly customer service makes it a perfect venue for your next event.
