When you’re a small business owner, it’s easy to fall behind on the latest technology strategies and tips.
That’s why the Mid-Continent Public Library’s Square One Small Business Services – in partnership with the Northland Regional Chamber and Platte County EDC – is hosting Small Business Bootcamp: Usable Technology on Jan. 26.
The free half-day workshop will run from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Celebration Station in Zona Rosa, 8640 W. Dixson Ave. (inside The Grove) in Kansas City, Mo. Snacks and coffee will be provided.
It’ll be a chance for busy business owners to get practical advice straight from the experts.
“Technology plays an essential role in our everyday life,” said Amy Fisher, who heads the Library’s Square One Small Business Services division. “This bootcamp will give attendees the chance to become more familiar with the latest technology and learn how it impacts their business as well as how they can use it to their advantage.”
Burton Kelso, the owner of computer consulting company Integral, will give the keynote address and share how he became the city’s best-known IT guy.
Threads Studio’s Santina Cessor will talk about using technology to communicate with customers, and Ben Rodriguez, CEO of IT Nachos, will give advice on working more effectively with tech professionals.
The Small Business Bootcamp is free, but registration is required. You can do that at www.mymcpl.org/SquareOne. Be sure to check out the rest of Square One’s upcoming slate of programs!
