The Deer Park Chamber of Commerce is pleased to partner with Shell Deer Park and NextStep Solutions for the second year running to bring the community a new and innovative program designed for business and personal development.

The “Business Growth Series” is an exclusive training program that will help you finish what you start in the interest of growing your respective business and delivering on your client promises.

These one of a kind courses facilitated by NextStep Solutions CEO Jack Warkenthien will develop you and your employees into the leaders you envision for your small business or large corporation. 

With the generous support of Shell Deer Park we have been able to slash the cost of this program in order for small and large business to take advantage of this unique opportunity.

Once a month for nine months starting in May you or your employees will attend a three-hour course learning how to develop your skill set.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for all nine courses at a reduced rate, or choose courses a la carte. When purchasing a registration, you are basically purchasing the seat, meaning you have the option to switch out attendees according to the class being offered.

By clicking below, or the digital syllabus to the left, you will find a synopsis of each course to be delivered. You will also find a breakdown of the cost for members and non-members.
