BASF Pest Control Solutions Announces 2011 Skill Development Seminars

Industry Events

The series' 2011 theme is "Delivering high value to your customers through SmartSolutions."

| November 17, 2010

St. Louis, Mo. — Jeff Tucker BCE, a perennial favorite due to his depth of knowledge and presentation style, is teaming up this year with BASF’s own market development specialists from around the country to share interesting and relevant information designed to help pest management professionals solve some of their toughest problems and improve their business.

The 2011 SDS SmartSolutions series will consist of a full day of training. Technical sessions will focus on our best solutions for specific pests: termites, ants, cockroaches and flies. Information for growing business opportunities, such as value-added selling and servicing will be woven throughout the day.
 

“Each year during our SDS series, we take a survey from attendees to find ways to improve the series for the next year,” said Brian Mann, education and marketing development manager. “Last year’s survey revealed strong interest in more technical topics and ways to improve business.”
 
“It is important to our business to help our partners become more successful,” said Keith Holmes, business unit manager for BASF Pest Control Solutions. “Their success is our success so we want to continue to provide them with valuable information and education that helps them grow and sustain their businesses. Our Skill Development Seminars have been designed to do just that.”

The seminars are free of charge, but space is limited. All attendees must register in advance through BASF’s website, www.pestcontrol.basf.us, or by calling 908/864-5800, ext 2177.
