It’s been 1 year. Everyone is tired of hearing all the negative details about how COVID-19 has upended our world. Have you considered, however, some of the positive outcomes from COVID such as spending more time with those who are important in your life or clearing out the clutter that’s been sitting unused? As Program Manager for the COVID-19 Recovery Program (CRP) for manufacturing in the region, there have been a variety of business lessons we have learn as a result of COVID-19 from small businesses across the region.


Join us for this Lunch & Learn to hear the 3 MOST IMPORTANT STRATEGIES COVID-19 has taught us about…


  • Business Evaluation
    • Too many times owners work in the business instead of on the business. Learn the top areas to consider when evaluating your business!
  • Business Stability
    • How do I know if my business is stable enough?  I want to invest in new equipment or an additional sales person but how stable, is “stable”?
  • Business Growth
    What competencies need to be in place to reach the next level or stage of business?  How do I go about that?
