UPCOMING WEBINARS
Rise & Shine Quarantine Q's
April 24, 2020
9:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
This is a weekly event!
 
Do you miss networking in person as much as we do? Do you need some Friday morning fun to fill the void left by Rise & Shine? Join us every Friday for the Rise & Shine Quarantine Q's!
 
Each week we will highlight a different community member, and ask them how they or their business are handling these Quarantine times. We'll get a tour of their facility, and find out what they've been watching on Netflix to pass the time! We will have the Q&A's open for audience feedback, so come prepared to get to know your Lafayette neighbors - from the safety of your own home!
 
 
Upcoming Featured Member: Chris Johnson with People's Brewing Company

BUSINESS SUCCESS
Virtual PODS (Peer Offered Development Strategies)
Now more than ever business owners need to work together to solve critical problems in their businesses. Virtual Peer-Offered Development Strategies (PODS) is the solution. In these Virtual CEO round-tables, noncompeting peers can safely discuss critical issues, experiences, and solutions with other business owners who know what you’re going through.

To learn more about joining a PODS table, contact Mark Lowe at mlowe@greaterlafayettecommerce.com.

Don’t get left behind, contact Mark, today!
