TV Host Dianne Andrews and Promoting Success Seminars bring “Winning in the New Competitive Environment” to Baton Rouge on April 28, 2018

According to a 2018 USA Today article, having a business mentor — an experienced person who has learned lessons and has sage advice to offer — can be the difference between costly mistakes or success in business. Their research indicated that mentored businesses were more likely to launch and have greater revenue. Finding a person with the time and talent to mentor can be difficult, so a local seminar has culled some of Baton Rouge’s leading business people representing diverse areas of expertise from investment/finance to psychology, accounting, law, image, and more, to help inform and inspire area professionals and students.

The seminar, “Winning in the New Competitive Environment,” is co-hosted by talk show host Dianne Andrews and Promoting Success Seminars. Andrews’ talk show “In Black and White” appears on various networks across Louisiana, Western Mississippi and Houston with archived episodes accessible on YouTube. Due to her years of business experience in Corporate America as a leading executive for companies including IBM and NASA, Andrews saw a need to educate people on tips and tools to foster success, so she crafted the day-long seminar to fill that gap. The seminar launched in New York and is making its return with Baton Rouge as the first stop.  

“We are thrilled to bring this seminar to Baton Rouge. So many people have goals and dreams but need the advice, inspiration and insight to reach them,” said Andrews. “We have a roster of some of the finest business leaders in Baton Rouge, from executives to owners, who are prepared to share their secrets to success.”

Morning sessions cover financial planning and keys to success. Afternoon sessions cover three tracks delving into a comprehensive range of topics to prepare the total person, such as: self development, image, managing stress, corporate sessions tailored for employees up to middle management level covering everything from interviewing to management skills, and entrepreneur sessions for small business owners or persons interested in starting a business.

The organizers have a strong commitment to philanthropy so have partnered with nonprofit organization The Emerge Center, the premier location for autism treatment and services, as a beneficiary and also have donated blocks of tickets to high school and college students in need.
