Leading the Way to Recovery and Tips for Making the Most of Your Tradeshow
I lead conversations on small business growth and competitiveness as the Chair of the Council for Small Business at the Greater Seattle Chamber of Commerce. On 4/13/2010, Carl Gipson, Small Business Director at the Washington Policy Center, joined me to lead a discussion on recently passed Washington State legislation and its impact on the small business community's ability to lead our economic resurgence. He also shared a copy of the WPC's report, Lead the Way: Small Business & the Road to Recovery. Thank you to all of the attendees who provided feedback and insights on navigating our changing economy!
During the second portion of the program (time stamp 1:14:00), I shared with our viewers some marketing tips for making the most of trade shows. This is in preparation for the upcoming Chamber Annual Tradeshow, the premier Puget Sound venue for showcasing your business and networking with more than 1,500 attendees. If you are a Seattle Chamber member and have not yet registered to exhibit, hurry up! Booths are selling out (they have a few left as of today).
