NAWBO Charlotte's very own Joanna Beck is speaking on the NAWBO NATIONAL Platform this week! Register now!Virtual Connect and Learn - Save Money and Time by Standardizing Your ProceduresOctober 26, 2021 @12pm ETREGISTER HEREPresented By: Joanna BeckCompanies focus on the big picture: increasing sales, lowering costs, and delivering products to market quickly. Unfortunately, it's the small things that hamper growth: a missed deadline here, a failed callback there. They all add up to frustration and are roadblocks to growth. Companies can be more effective and efficient by identifying and correcting the small issues that impact the big picture. This helps them better serve existing customers, reach new customers faster, and increase profits. Streamlined operations help companies grow quickly during robust economies and pivot faster during down times. Your business will run better and your business frustration will turn into more time for that vacation with your family or to enjoy a yoga class more than once a month.Bio:Joanna Beck is frustrated by inefficiency and promises that don't deliver or solutions that don't work. She has endured companies that make it hard to solve customer problems and are only focused on themselves.Joanna ventured out on her own to show that small changes can make big impacts.

Nikki Laub

Premiere Concrete Supply

Nikki Laub officially founded Premiere Concrete Supply in February 2016. With a background in Sales, Operations, Logistics & HR, Nikki took everything she knew and applied it to a different industry.
Nikki was born in Cincinnati, where she now lives as a single mother of 4 boys, although her business is based in Charlotte, N.C. After staying home for nine years, she accepted an entry-level position with Home Depot, quickly growing through the ranks. Nikki was then courageous enough to venture out on her own. She worked full-time with a Ready-Mix concrete company before founding Premiere. Nikki’s fiery personality and strong work ethic helped her carve out her own path in a new, male-dominated industry.
