Catch Raving and our partners during the following session:
The importance of developing managers as coaches in Native organizations: Tools that can improve performance at your organization in today’s ultra-competitive environment
Tuesday, September 25, 2:45 pm -- 4:15 pm
Tribal organizations are not typical businesses. They are large family businesses with unique politics, reporting structures and opportunities. Too often organizations fail to include leadership and tribal member development as part of the strategic business strategy. This discussion is even more relevant today as tribes are trying to manage low employment rates and the difficulties of attracting people to rural markets. For the long-term success of the organization and to fulfill the Tribes interest in the realization of sovereignty it is critical that resources and programs are instituted to place create a leadership culture throughout the organization. In this session, attendees will get a roadmap of how to develop professional internal performance programs that focus on growing the team from the bottom up.

Panelists: Paula Allen, Raving Partner and Director of Leadership and Guest Services, 7 Cedars Casino

In this interactive discussion, hear from successful table game executives across multiple markets about their top priorities, and the steps they are taking to defend and grow table game revenue. Moderator: Michael Hochman, Vice President, Casino Operations, Canterbury Park Panelists: TBA Tuesday, November 6 11:30 am – 12:30 pm Player Worth and the Path to True Loyalty Marketing Table game marketing has long taken a back seat to slot marketing in terms of efficiency and effectiveness because it has been too much art and not enough science. Suppliers have worked with operators to close that gap, developing a number of technological solutions that aim to capture the value of each bet and thus the value of the customer placing that bet. From there, operators can target players appropriately. In this session, you will hear a progress report on table game player valuation and the resulting benefits for operators. Moderator: Kevin Parker, Raving Partner, Casino Operations and Technology Panelists: Michael May, Vice President, Casino Operations, Canterbury Park TBA Wednesday, November 7 10:00 am – 10:45 am Dealer Tips: Overcoming Barriers on Going for Your Own Most casinos pool dealer tips but those who go for their own make a strong case for their side of the discussion. Indeed, the potential benefits associated with the “pay-for-performance” aspect of going for your own has compelled a number of operators to rethink their approach, but many are still intimidated by potential snags such as developing an equitable approach to scheduling, avoiding favoritism and keeping the playing field level for all team members. In this session, you will hear the answers to these issues and more from operators who both go for their won and have managed the transition from pooling.
