The Loneliness of a Business Owner – Mental Health Awareness | Jan. 24th at 5:30 PM in Room 203

It is often said, “It is lonely at the top.” This is especially true for business owners – especially small business owners.  In a time of ramped up awareness of mental health issues, this workshop will look at why and how business owners can cope with the stresses encountered daily.  This practical and interactive workshop will provide tools to identify and cope with the everyday stresses that only a business owner understands. This may be the most important workshop you will attend all year!

Providing Excellent Client Services| Jan. 31st at 5:30 PM in Room 204

It is the goal of most businesses to provide excellent customer service. While this sounds great, most businesses do not have a plan to make that happen. And even more concerning is that they have no processes or initiatives to empower employees and customer-facing team members with adequate tools to deal with customer service issues. This session will be a practical session for all business owners and entrepreneurs discussing various aspects of Providing Excellent Customer Experiences and ways to implement them into their daily business. While customers are the core component of a business, dealing with them can be difficult and tiring. This workshop will be instructed by Ted Baker, CEO/Executive Director of the Innovation Connector, who has been trained at Disney’s Institute of Customer Experience.
