Growing a small business can be as challenging as it is rewarding. Critical decisions often have to be made quickly. There are a lot of aspects to running a business that are not always covered in traditional business classes.

These are interactive sessions that will explore key topics that are important daily operations and company success.

The monthly sessions are FREE and open to the public. DeskHub and Downtown Works are collaborators and hosts of the various sessions.

  • Convenient morning and lunch sessions
  • Short, one-hour sessions on topics relevant to small businesses
  • Speakers are leading industry practitioners
