Graham: Welcome everyone to the Martial Arts Business Success Podcast, about 87. We've actually got myself, Graham, and Phil as always, but we've got a guest instructor here, one of our instructors, one of our top guys who runs a school. This is Andrew. Today we're gonna be talking all about a topic that, in all honesty, is probably, in my opinion, one of the hardest job roles to do in any martial arts business, and that's being a program director or a program manager. Phil, what do we got?

Phil: Well, you know, I've done it, you've done it, Andrew has done it. He's doing it now. He's a manager of one of our largest schools and has program directors under him as well.

Graham M.:
Look we've got a really great one that we're going to talk about today. It's a topic that, to be honest with you, it's kind of a challenge for some people to break into, to get their head around. It's called business to business. Now it's got many different layers on this one. In this economy, and I reckon even globally, we talk about building relationships with their students, but what about building relationships with the businesses around you, or things that are going to complement you as a martial arts school.
