We have dedicated two half-days to connecting you to content and information pertinent to your small business. The first day will feature a keynote presentation by Kurt Treu, The Growth Coach titled “Leadership Transformation: Your Most Powerful Resource.”  Then throughout the next two days, we will offer breakout sessions from experts who can connect you to the tools and resources you need to navigate these challenging times and to continue to grow your business.
