The Destination Creation course was developed by Jon Schallert whose Destination Business strategy has helped businesses large and small to capture more market share, even when larger, better-capitalized competitors seemingly have the advantage. When independent business owners apply the Destination strategy to their businesses, they naturally attract more local consumers along with customers from outside the traditional marketplace.

The Destination Creation course was an idea of community and association leaders that wanted a shorter version of Jon’s Destination BootCamp class, and they wanted it to be taught in any location, in rural small towns or urban areas, anywhere a group of interested business professionals could get together to learn.

This course, led by Kerri Falletti, a facilitator trained by Jon, is designed to help you maximize the draw to your business by helping you to identify what makes your business a unique destination.  Now is the perfect opportunity to build upon your business so that once we emerge from our current situation, you’ll be stronger and better prepared to bring people back to your business!

The class will take place via a Zoom video conference call Tuesdays and Thursdays, May 14 – June 11, 9:00 am – 11:00 am.  There will also be an opportunity to schedule continued one-on-one follow-up to review how you’re positioning your business for that next step.

The cost of the class for Cowley County businesses is $155 which includes a digital workbook and online materials license. This is half the cost that the program is being marketed to the rest of the country. Cowley County businesses can also be eligible for a $100 scholarship refunded upon completion of the course through our NetWork Kansas and E-Community partnership.
