In Kawartha Lakes, we never stop talking about why community matters for small business. Our entire value proposition is based on the idea that being part of a community matters.
Our small business communities are the cornerstone of neighborhood communities, but small businesses also need their own community created for them. So, who do they turn to when faced with challenges that are specifically business-related? It makes sense that the best person to turn to is a business peer who has faced similar challenges. This is why a community for small businesses matters.
Sales can come from many different avenues making it important for small business owners to understand the importance of working with their local community? There is a wealth of information out there and each of us has information and knowledge of resources that we can share with colleagues and/or other businesses. This workshop will discuss the importance of breaking down barriers to creating a collaborative environment, the value of strategic alliances, creating buying programs, cross promotions and shared resources with other community businesses.
Facilitated by: Sandy Greenberg – serial entrepreneur, established business coach and former business advisor at Centennial College Centre of Entrepreneurship.
