Columbus Chamber Announces New Webinar Series
Columbus, OH – The Columbus Chamber will launch its new Smart Edge Professional Development Webinar Series in 2012 to provide business-critical, easy-access educational opportunities for members. The monthly sessions, which focus on a variety of small-business-focused topics, will be presented by fellow Chamber members and Chamber staff.
The webinar series is one way the Chamber is working to deliver even greater value to its members.
“We’ve received positive feedback on the educational sessions available at the annual Small Business Forum, so we wanted to extend that offering with a more frequent and accessible option for members to interact and learn about key issues facing their businesses,” said Michael Dalby, president and CEO, Columbus Chamber. “By featuring industry thought leaders and sharing useful tips and tactics, these webinars will arm our members with information they can use to take their businesses to the next level.”
The monthly sessions will occur at 10 a.m. the second Tuesday of each month. The first several sessions will focus on the following topics:
January 10 – “Achieving Success with an Advisory Board” presented by Mary McCarthy & Caroline Worley, Your Management Team
February 14 – “Leading: Be Your B.E.S.T.” presented by Pat Hicks, Outcomes Management Group
