LEWISBURG, Pa. — Business consultant David Burns will offer the seminar, "Out with the Old, In with the New: How to Change Unproductive Behaviors," on Tuesday, March 13, from 9 a.m. to noon at the SBDC Business Education Center, Room 308 of the DeWitt Building at 416 Market St. in Lewisburg.

A business trainer, speaker and consultant to organizations ranging in size from micro-businesses to Fortune 500 firms, Burns has a degree in education, advanced degrees in multiple martial arts and hands-on experience from running his own business since 1980.
Burns says, "If your New Year's resolutions have already been forgotten, and you would like to get back on track, this seminar is for you. Changing unproductive habits and behaviors (personal or professional) requires more than just wishing for a change. It requires five concrete steps to make change happen including why you need to change your thinking, how to quickly learn the 'new' skills, how your fans and 'friends' influence you, how to create a new default future, and how changing your environment can change your behavior."
Registration is required as seating is limited. The registration fee is $35. Veterans are welcome to attend at no cost. Participants will receive one-year subscriptions to Inc. and Susquehanna Business Life magazines.
To register, call the SBDC at 570-577-1249; e-mail SBDC@bucknell.edu, or visit www.bucknell.edu/script/sbdc/register.asp
Burns will offer several other seminars during 2012, including "Polishing your Professional Habits: How to Stand Out in the Crowded Business World" on May 22 in the Country Cupboard; "Make it Easy for Them to Buy: Communicating for Better Results in Tough Times" on June 21 in the SBDC Business Education Center; and "Set Your Business Apart ... One Customer at a Time" on Oct. 4 at the SBDC Business Education Center.
