May is small business month and the first week of the month is Small Business Week. And The LEE Group is pleased to announce its Fifth Annual Small Business workshop, presented by Fifth Third Bank, which is scheduled for Tuesday, May 7, 2019, 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., at TechTown, 440 Burroughs, in Detroit.
This year’s theme–Navigating The Headwinds of Change–addresses the question of whether or not your business is ready for an ever-changing, competitive, dynamic market, in light of potential economic changes. The workshop will feature speakers, panelists, community and corporate partners whom will provide information and resources focused on assisting businesses while navigating a potential changing economic landscape later this year.
Participants will have the opportunity to attend breakout sessions focused on navigating the challenges of running a business, understanding customer’s behavioral purchase patterns, using social media to deliver key messages while supporting in a cost-effective manner, understanding economic patterns and their impact on business sustainability and understanding the financial value a customer brings to your business–longer-term.
