A skill development, networking and collaboration event for manufacturing and technology businesses
Those of us lucky enough to call the Columbia Basin home know that starting and growing a successful business takes more than just hanging up a shingle.
Opportunities for networking and collaboration, access to resources and skill development opportunities, and a collective regional vision that supports our entrepreneurs and businesses are all part of making it happen here.
Join KRIC and Columbia Basin Trust's Manufacturing and Technology Sector (MATS) Initiative on Thursday, June 6 for this 3-part event for businesses.
Beginning with a hands-on marketing workshop, Breakthrough Branding: Doing Business in the Basin, from 1-5 pm, business owners and entrepreneurs will work with management consultant Jim Bottomley to ultimately answer the question, “what business am I really in?”
The workshop is followed by a public networking event, complete with appetizers and cash bar, from 5-7 pm. This is a great opportunity to connect with other businesses and support organizations in the area.
At 7 pm, the evening’s keynote, Rallying Regional Innovation: Forging Future Success in the Columbia Basin, will be delivered in the Lecture Theatre by Jim Bottomley.
Jim is a consultant and futurist who helps develop a community’s capacity for future success, and has made the case for more than 250,000 audience members that we are entering a whole new economy, The Age of Innovation.
The cost of the workshop is $40, and includes the networking event, 1 drink ticket and admission to the evening keynote. The keynote is $15, and includes the networking event and 1 drink ticket. There is no charge to attend the networking event, however registration is requested in order to help estimate catering.
