The LF/LB Chamber is offering a series of webinars to connect, support, and help local businesses in a COVID-19 impacted marketplace. Building your business in our new normal will require new business “muscles” to survive, thrive, and grow.
Building Muscles to Get Your Business Moving will feature the following schedule of practical and informational webinars featuring local business owners and community leaders.
May 5 - Strategic Pivots: Move Your Business for Success/Opportunities
With guests Gifted owner Megan Stockton & Donati's Pizza owner Jeff Urso, this webinar will showcase the value of “thinking outside the box” to unlock potential business and expand the opportunity to increase your customer base.
