CDP offers workshop for growing small businesses

Three session workshop: March 1st, 8th and 15th

The Community Development Partnership (CDP), a non-profit organization creating opportunities for people to live, work, and thrive on the Lower Cape, is offering a workshop series for small business owners interested in growing, improving and/or refreshing their business. The classes in the workshop series will be held on three Wednesdays, beginning on March 1st and continuing on March 8th and 15th. Each class will run from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM at the Harwich Community Center – 100 Oak Street in Harwich,

Jay Coburn, Executive Director of the CDP said, “We are so pleased to offer a workshop series aimed at supporting the growing small businesses in our region.” Coburn - himself a former small business owner - went on to say, “Taking the time to step away from your business and really taking a critical look at where you are and where you’re going is a valuable exercise and important for future success. Grow Smart will allow business owners to do just that.”

Working in a confidential setting, the interactive workshop will allow business owners to share their challenges and work out solutions to improve their operations. Topics include understanding the financial health of the business; making more money; managing employees and professional services; setting up systems; balancing home and work; keeping-up with & using technology; and staying inspired to grow.

The Grow Smart workshop is generously sponsored by The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod.

The workshop will be co-led by Glen Ohlund, the CDP's Director of Economic Development. Guest Speakers include: Christine Cox, Interim CFO Services; Paul Goddu, Highland Financial Group; Marc Goldberg, Cape Cod & the Islands SCORE; Peter Karlson of NeuEon
Space is Limited and pre-registration is required. The fee for Grow Smart is $50. There are scholarships available.
