Workshops & Events


DCFCU is committed to helping our members increase their knowledge so that they can achieve success in both their individual and business lives.  Our Grow Your Business Series was started back in February 2008 as a way to help people grow their business in the face of a challenging economic environment. This series features a variety of topics, presented by local, national, and international personal and business growth experts each month.

Our next workshop in the 2020 Grow Your Business Series will be one of the most unique workshops we’ve ever hosted! With the recent change in guidelines prohibiting in-person events, this will be an online event featuring Douglas Burdett on the topic of “5 Ideas that Matter Most from 300 Marketing and Sales Books.”

Douglas Burdett, who will be presenting to us virtually from Norfolk, Virginia, is the host of The Marketing Book Podcast, which has been named by LinkedIn as one of the “10 Podcasts that Will Make You a Better Marketer” and by Forbes as one of the “11 Smart Podcasts That Will Keep You in the Know.”

Since 2015, Douglas has interviewed the authors of over 300 of the leading sales and marketing books, reading every single book in the process. In this interactive session, he will be presenting the five most important ideas that he has gleaned from these readings and interviews, and some of the evidence and insights that authors have used to back them up. 

If you want to be successful in marketing and sales, or if you just want to find out which books will help you the most today, you don’t need to read 300 marketing and sales books, you just need to attend this month’s workshop! Come prepared to ask questions and share your own insights.

Douglas is not just a reader, he is also a practitioner: he is the Founder/Principal of Artillery, a manufacturing and industrial marketing agency in Norfolk, Virginia. Prior to founding his firm, Douglas worked in advertising on New York City’s famed Madison Avenue at J Walter Thompson and Grey Advertising. Before starting his business career, he served as U.S. Army Artillery officer overseas for three years and then earned an MBA. 

Due to current COVID19 guidelines, this event will only be online. RSVP today to participate!
