COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – (January 26, 2015) – The Center for Business Modeling (CBM) today announced the launch of its new podcast, the CBM Expert Series. The Expert Series will feature guests with deep experience in several aspects of business planning—from ground-up startups to yearly and quarterly planning challenges for established businesses. The 15-minute podcast (which includes synced visual slides and audio) features a brief presentation from the guest that focuses on how to solve a business planning problem followed by a brief Q&A with the host.

The inaugural episode features a presentation and talk with Christopher Ryan, CEO of Colorado Springs-based Fusion Marketing Partners, a B2B marketing agency providing strategy and execution that accelerates sales for enterprises across the globe. Ryan shares his wisdom on how positioning and branding impacts company value.

Future episodes of the Expert Series will include:

  • Denver-based angel investor Todd McWhirter, who will explain why a detailed and realistic exit strategy is critical to raising money. He will discuss several types of exit plans and provide tips for each.
  • Impact B2B Sales Managing Director James Franklin will discuss how “the buyer’s funnel” can improve the way sales teams engage and convert prospects.

“CBM’s mission is to streamline and simplify how business leaders plan for success in every facet of their enterprise,” said Expert Series host Nate Warren. “To that end, we offer a concise presentation that focuses on a highly practical topic from a guest whose shared experience can help our audience shorten the path between writing the plan and realizing success.”
