The B4: Small Business Workshops series begins August 9 in Albertville. Don’t let the name fool you: the series is for any business leader (or prospective leaders) in small- to mid-sized businesses and organizations.
Here is why you need to attend:
10. Breakfast is the most important part of the day.
9. Groups are fun.
8. Networking is key to business growth.
7. Your kids are running circles around you on social media.
6. You’re struggling to keep great, passionate employees.
5. You want to be the best.
4. Collaboration grows business.
3. Out with the old, in with the new.
2. Short, sweet and to the point.
1. It’s local.
Get started with breakfast at 7 a.m. on each workshop day and be ready to go for some interactive learning at 7:30 a.m. And really, what sounds more fun: Sitting by yourself in an office trying to tap out your strategy for 2012 or sitting with others going through the same thing, exchanging ideas? Think about it.
You’ll learn, you’ll schmooze, you’ll network with other leaders in and outside your industry. And that long social media list…Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google+, Groupon…we’ll break that down for you, in simple terms. September 13 is all about marketing through social media. Challenge yourself to move outside your comfort zone and learn about ways to increase the success of your business or organization. You’ll have a leg up on your 2012 strategies because you chose to take a little time to learn.
You know there are things you should be doing for your company or organization but just do not have the time for. Take this opportunity to learn how to focus on the things you’re good at and collaborate with others on things that can be taken off your plate. And if you haven’t changed up your business plan, your marketing strategy or your sales process, it’s high time to look at that. What better way to learn about fun, new examples of other companies? We’ve got ‘em!
We won’t waste your time. Get in, get out in 2 ½ hours. And forget about rush hour; we’re launching the B4: Small Business Workshops series right here in Albertville. (But for those of you in the cities, don’t worry…we’re bringing them to you in 2012!)
