Our professional development programs are exciting opportunities to learn from other Chamber members and strengthen your skills on a variety of levels.
The Chamber’s Value-Added Tuesday programs are benefits of all levels of Chamber membership. Held at lunchtime three times a month, each program has a mission of helping you network and meet Chamber members while in a unique setting or while learning a new skill. These include our Member Led Workshops and Business Toolkit programs. During Member Led Workshops, Chamber members learn more about their fellow members’ area of expertise by attending a different workshop on the fourth Tuesday of every month from 12:30 – 1:30 p.m.
The “Business Toolkit,” consists of three sessions, each developed to help you build your network, leverage your referrals, and grow your business to its highest levels yet. The sessions do not have to be consecutive, though it is recommended that you attend each of the sessions once per calendar year to sharpen your skills and meet new contacts through your Chamber membership.
The topics to make up your “Business Toolkit” will be covered in the following sessions:
Our training specialist from Sandler Training will help you develop a clear, concise, and impactful elevator speech. You will walk away from the “Develop” session with an elevator speech that helps you share your ideal referral so your business can grow.
In this session, learn how to identify your target audience. Where do your business leads come from? Who do you want to talk to? What is hindering you from closing key sales? Are you continually being “price shopped?” Let us help you identify your target audience so you can build meaningful, long-lasting, profitable relationships.
Use your network and referrals to your advantage. Make the most of your Chamber membership by clearly expressing the leads that are most beneficial to your business, and strategically seeking them out.
