Speaker -Gillian Fairley,
South Georgian Bay Small Business Enterprise Centre
Topic: Dusting off Your Business Plan
The Networking Committee for the Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that the speaker for our next 'Breakfast at the Beach' on Thursday March 13th at 7:00am-8:30am will be Gillian Fairley, the Coordinator of the South Georgian Bay Small Business Enterprise Centre. The breakfast will be held at Goodies Café at 1470 Mosley St. (corner of 34th St.), Wasaga Beach.
Gillian's topic will be "Dusting off Your Business Plan - Review. Refresh. and Re-Focus". As a small business owner it is important to revisit and refresh your business plan on a regular basis. We know that this is important, but we don't always take to the time to update our plan. Gillian will provide us with some simple templates and free resources to make this process quicker and easier. Updating your business plan helps you to keep up-to-date with the changing environment, to ensure you are meeting the demands of your customers and to develop realistic objectives for your business.
The Small Business Enterprise Centre is a premier resource centre for helping local enterprising people start and grow their business, and meet their entrepreneurial aspirations. The focus of the Centre is to provide resources, consulting and support to start-up and existing small businesses during their development, retention and operation.
As Coordinator of the South Georgian Bay Small Business Enterprise Centre, Gillian has spent the last three years assisting entrepreneurs in the community in developing and launching their new ventures, assessing opportunities, creating business and marketing plans, as well as delivering workshops and training to small business owners on important business topics. Gillian has extensive project management and management consulting experience. She has worked with organizations throughout the United States, as well as in the UK, Germany and Sweden. Gillian has consulted for the public and private sectors, including the automotive, manufacturing, financial services, insurance and real estate sectors.
The Wasaga Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Networking Committee are delighted to welcome Gillian as our speaker for what we believe will be a very interesting and informative talk on keeping your business plan up to date and resources available at the Centre.
