What will you do if social media disappeared tomorrow? How would your typical customer learn about your, your services and the problems you solve for them? How will you reach your ideal customers without wasting time or resources? Cold-calling? Yuck.
While word-of-mouth is a great way for people to validate your businesses quality, credibility and services... It’s great if you are ok with attracting new clients at a snails pace...but who optimizes for a slow path to growth?
Join us on June 6th @10 AM to learn the basics about lead generation, why it’s important for local businesses, how you can use it to leverage your social media efforts with the end in mind -- profits!
Space is limited, so be sure to register ASAP to reserve your seat.

Last Wednesday, the PEI Partnership for Growth (PFG) officially unveiled its five year economic action plan at a special launch event in Pooles Corner.

The 2021-2026 Economic Action Plan intends to build resilience and sustainability in a changing world that is private sector-led and involves alignment and collaboration by all stakeholders to ensure the successful implementation and a strong path forward for PEI.

Many employers are hiring youth this summer to work in their businesses. As a youth life coach, Lindsay Law has a unique glimpse into the teenage brain and can offer perspective and support for employers and in turn their teen employees. As employers feel more confident in communicating with their teen employees, their teen employees will feel better supported and thus perform their jobs with more confidence and effectiveness. Everyone wins! 
Participants will walk away from this session with practical tools for how to communicate with your teen employees so they both feel great this summer. 
WHEN: Friday, June 17 from 10am to 11am
WHERE: IN PERSON at our Rural Women’s Business Centre located in Central Bedeque

Canadian Industry for Ukraine – How Can Business Help?

The federal government is making an appeal to Canadian businesses interested in providing support to displaced Ukrainians arriving in Canada.
Canada has partnered with the Canadian Immigrant Settlement Sector Alliance and its national network of settlement organizations to provide direct and critical support to those in need. Donations from Canadian businesses will go to Ukrainians and other displaced persons making Canada their home.
If you own a business or run an organization in Canada and are interested in providing assistance, this is your opportunity to help in a variety of ways – goods and services, jobs, financial aid and medical supplies.
