Free lunch-and-learn business webinars coming up

Free lunch-and-learn business webinars coming up

SEAFORTH — The Huron Small Business Enterprise is hosting two free lunch-and-learn business webinars, facilitated by Tina Heathers. Her topics include An Entrepreneurship Self-Assessment (Wednesday, February 17) and Marketing your Business (Wednesday, March 3). The first session will include a handout checklist that will be distributed by email that morning.

“Webinars are something new for the SBEC,” reported Alison Lobb, Business Consultant. “If the response warrants it, we’ll consider more.”

Sessions will run from 11:30 am to 1 pm, featuring a one-hour delivery by Tina and half an hour of Q&A. That way if participants can only manage a one-hour lunch break, they need not stay for the Q&A. If this is your first experience with a webinar, you are welcome to join us in the boardroom of the Huron Business Centre in Seaforth. Bring a bag lunch and your own laptop to sign in, or join us watching with the Centre’s computer.

Participants will need to pre-register and would be advised to check out in advance the free software needed – GoToMeeting. Register for the webinars by calling the Huron Business Centre at 519.527.0305 and speak with Lisa or Alison. The morning of the session, Tina will email each registered participant the link to join the webinar.

Tina Heathers has always been a popular facilitator in our workshop series. She has a Master’s Degree in Business and many years’ experience in corporate training and small business consulting.  Tina has worked with many organizations across Canada and in the Caribbean.  Her passion for entrepreneurship and creating business ventures shows clearly when she is coaching business owners or teaching groups of people how to start and grow their own business.  She has owned and operated a chain of retail fashion stores, a business consulting company, and an alternative wellness coaching business.  She now works with individuals and business owners to help them achieve their dreams.

Our regular evening workshop series will begin in March, with considerable focus that first month on recognizing graduates (274!) of the SEB (Self Employment Benefit) program.  This year we will be featuring an expanded two-evening QuickBooks workshop, so participants will be able to have more hands-on exercises. Workshop sessions are normally held at the REAC H Centre in Clinton from 7-9:30 pm. For the spring series, you can either purchase a spring pass for $50 or pay separately at $20 per workshop (HST included). The pass would allow you to attend one, or all, of the workshop series. Details, and a schedule, will be available soon on our website www.huronsbec.ca.
