FYI Business Workshop
Fine Tuning Your Networking Skills

Join us on Wednesday, May 17 for our next FYI Business Workshop.  At this event, you will hear from a panel of successful business professionals on how they developed their networking skills. Then participants will get a chance to work on improving their own skills during this hands-on workshop.

Patty Keating with the Purdue Extension Office will be moderating the panel as well as leading the hands-on workshop.

We have partnered with SCORE, a business mentoring organization, along with Michigan City, Portage, and Duneland Chambers to put on this program that is entitled:  

Concept to Classic: Tried and True with a Twist of New

The idea behind the theme is that we have successful long-standing businesses (CLASSIC) talk about how it was to start, operate, and evolve over time (what has worked, what hasn't, what you will continue to do from day 1 to the end of time, etc). Then engage the business owners who are newer to the game (CONCEPT) and talk about what their business approach was from the start (what have they done that they were coached to do, new trends that they try, what works, what doesn't, etc).
The event will be held on Thursday, May 11 from 8:00 a.m.- 9:30 a.m. at Sand Creek Country Club.

Scheduled speakers for this event are:

Rick Urschel - Urschel Laboratories
Mark Chamberlain - Lakeside Wealth Management
Ric Federighi - WIMS AM 1420
Lauren Vogelsang - AJ's Pizza
Eric Zosso - Zoseco Coworking
Megan Applegate - MC Chamber's Lake Career Network
Wade Breitzke - +WeCreate Media/27 Entertainment
