Here’s an Olympic business fact: This week we are talking about 5 of the 10 Olympic Sports Venues. Deer Valley Resort will host four Olympic alpine skiing events with the men’s and women’s slaloms and combined slaloms. The Freestyle Skiing events of high flying aerials and bump-and-run moguls will also be at the resort.
The Olympics is such a unique event that without training most businesses will not see any tangible benefits. The Chamber’s Gold Medal Seminars teach companies how to profit during the Winter Games. The next Gold Medal Seminar, sponsored by Office Depot, is next Wednesday, August 22nd at the Hilton Salt Lake City Center. Tom Shepard of Visa will talk about “Business Lessons Learned From Past Olympics.” Call 328-5097 for more information or see us on the web at saltlakechamber.org.
