They came, they watched and they learned: that's the Cole's Notes version of Thursday's (Jan. 26) inaugural video seminar with business and tourism consultant Roger Brooks.
The Town of Drumheller hosted interested people over the noon hour to watch a presentation titled Curb Appeal and First Time Sales.
"There was a lot of talking and networking after the video was over," reported Judy Quinton Arvidson with the town. "That's always a good sign, that people enjoyed it and got something out of it."
About ten business owners and would-be business owners turned out for the video presentation at the Badlands Community Facility.
"It always seems that things get a lot more popular when people start talking about them," noted Arvidson. "You get the first few out and get them talking about it and the next thing you know, people are starting to say hey, maybe I'll do that too, and it goes from there."
Brooks is a consultant and motivational speaker who specializes in travel and tourism, community branding and destination marketing. 
"We're with CAEP, which is a regional economic development (organization) and they gifted us, actually, with a subscription for one year so we'll probably keep it going I would think, I would hope, if it's of interest to people and it should be," concluded Arvidson.
Three more Roger Brooks video sessions have been scheduled in Drumheller: February 16 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m., March 16 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. and April 20 from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
