The Power of a Peer – How joining a peer group will help grow your business

Registration Link

This session will focus on the value that involvement with peers can bring to your business. Peer groups allow a partner to learn best practices and become accountable to a virtual board of directors who can help shape the future. Some of the benefits of belonging to a peer group are:

·         Networking

·         Discovering new and innovative ideas

·         Giving and receiving feedback on current business practices

·         Hearing about business practices in other companies from around the nation

·         Engaging in collective problem solving so as to avoid “reinventing the wheel”

·         Improving leadership and management skills

·         Sustaining an action oriented focus

·         Staying ahead of a rapidly changing industry

This lively session will illustrate how peer groups work and the potential they have to make a significant impact on your business.

In the near future, we will be posting a listing of all of the events, including the registration links, to the MSSMALLBIZ site.

Thank you and have a wonderful day,
