Small Business Summer School is a NEW event series where guests have the opportunity to enjoy a beer, connect with a few people and hear from business leaders on tangible ways they can improve the bottom line of their businesses. These relaxed conversations will not be your traditional classroom style learning, it’s more of an interactive event. Conversations will be led by local business leaders who will share their experiences and expertise.

Topic:  “Be Different…”. 
 
Business people in sales must find ways to differentiate themselves in a highly competitive marketplace.  A “quote and Hope” selling strategy typically doesn't cut it anymore.  We’ll explore some ideas and techniques to be seen as different to our clients and prospects and enjoy greater success in sales.
