More One-Day Offerings Coming Up in HCC's New Practical Entrepreneurship Workshop Series
Surveys said Excellent!   Congratulations to Ashley Small and Austin Tennette and all of the entrepreneurs who were so actively engaged at our  Sales & Marketing Powered Up workshop last Thursday, September 21. 
There was time to learn & share ideas as a group.
We also made time for each entrepreneur to think, apply strategies to their own businesses and jot them down in a sales & marketing workbook to take home and develop further. 
Peer-to-peer conversations allowed entrepreneurs to exchange ideas and get feedback from each other and from our workshop facilitators.   

We know we've hit on gold with a 99% excellence rating on our event surveys!    

This all day workshop is one offered in a new Practical Entrepreneurship Series being developed by our HCC Center for Entrepreneurship and our Entrepreneurs in Residence.   For more upcoming days in the series:
