The Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce wants to help you get down to business.
Through collaborations with local and national experts, the chamber will offer about 60 workshops to help local residents train, develop and prepare for professional, entrepreneurial and community opportunities in 2018.
Supported with funding by the C. S. Mott Foundation, the sessions are open to the public and available at little or no cost as part of the chamber’s efforts to help boost local business activity.
“These workshops provide an excellent opportunity for personal and professional growth,” says Michelle Hill, director of Core Initiatives and Shared Services at the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce. “Whatever training you pursue, you’re bound to gain insights that can help you advance in your career, build your professional network or make positive changes at home.”
Scheduled workshops, developed from feedback provided by 2017 session participants, include:
- Leading from Within, the first workshop in a four-part series exploring Co-Active Leadership—a concept rooted in the belief that everyone is a leader. Led by Crawford Collaborative Consulting Jan. 24
- Vision Board Party, which will provide the supplies and guidance needed to create a vision board mapping out your business and life goals. Led by Ebonie Gipson of I’m Building Something Consulting Jan. 29
- Grant Writing 101, which will cover the stages of grant writing, how to write a successful proposal and best practices for following up after winning or losing a grant. Led by Phyllis Lewis of SmartWORKS Feb. 21
