Haldimand County Celebrating Small Business Week Virtually With Workshops/Webinars for Local Biz

This year, Haldimand County is celebrating Small Business Week virtually by offering online workshops and webinars throughout the week of October 19-23. Online workshops and webinars are being offered in partnership with the Brantford Brant Business Resource Centre (BRC); they are free and open to all local business owners within Haldimand.

Small Business Week is a national celebration that recognizes Canadian entrepreneurs, their successes and community contributions. This year’s theme is “Forging the Way Forward” and focuses on recognizing the countless examples of entrepreneurial resilience happening right now across the country.

Small businesses help shape and enhance the personality of our communities; they understand the needs of the neighborhoods we live in and are part of what make them great. Celebrating small Business Week is an opportunity to say ‘thank you’ to all businesses that contribute to making Haldimand such an amazing place to live and work.

“Haldimand County strives to support and celebrate our community’s local businesses, and with this year’s virtual format, we hope to provide local entrepreneurs with the tools they need to thrive now and into the future,” said Lidy Romanuk, Haldimand’s Manager of Economic Development and Tourism.

Small Business Week virtual offerings include a series of inspiring and informative daily webinars, including a keynote address from innovative entrepreneurs John and Mark X Cronin, founders of ‘John’s Crazy Socks’. Other webinar topics include accessing and analyzing market research to inform business decisions, working and selling remotely in a digital world, managing social media and more.
