THRIVING AFTER COVID
Your Business, 2.0
Reimagine your business in GCDC's free online workshop on May 14
If you own a business in Green County, join us for a free online workshop to reimagine your business as we emerge from COVID. “Your Business, 2.0” will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Thursday, May 14.

You’ll be able to join from your computer. Because this is a very interactive workshop, we ask that you contact us at gcdc@tds.net and let us know you’d like to attend. Then we will send you instructions on how to tune in. All that you need to participate is an interest in exploring new ideas.

This workshop will be helpful for any sort of business, even nonprofits. It will be especially useful to people who don’t consider themselves particularly visionary. Sometimes it is difficult to see how we can change something we have worked so hard to create. This workshop is going to tap your imagination, shake it up and push it further. We’ll also work in small groups to help each other lift our eyes to see a brighter future.

This live meeting is based on the work developed by Chelsea Hassler who helps corporations develop product and business strategy.
Reserve your spot by emailing gcdc@tds.net
