Strategies for Success in a Changing Marketplace

PLATTSBURGH, NY___ The North Country and Canton Small Business Development centers (SBDC) and the ComLink's Women's Entrepreneurial Business Center (WEBC) will co-host two workshops to assist entrepreneurs in making the most of the changing marketplace.

Presentations by Tony Maglione (North Country SBDC), Michelle Collins (Canton SBDC) and Brenda Thornton (ComLink's WEBC) will offer an opportunity for participants to identify and embrace competitive advantages, learn how to capture untapped revenue and discuss how other communities have adjusted to the addition of mega retailers to their communities.

"Strategies for Business Success in a Marketplace with Mega Retailers," will be held May 18 at Potsdam Civic Center, Park Street, Potsdam, N.Y., from 1 to 4 p.m., in Potsdam.

"Strategies for Business Success in a Changing Marketplace," will also be held May 18 at North Country Community College at the main campus in Saranac Lake as well as the Malone campus via videoconferencing, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. These workshops will offer the communities' business owners an opportunity to understand what happens when mega retailers become part of the business community. 

"Small business success is integral to maintaining the vibrancy and growth of our ever-changing global economy," said Thornton. "Businesses can learn a great deal by formulating a strategic plan, setting feasible long-range goals, developing a realizable marketing plan and by collaborating with other businesses to achieve success."

The workshops are $15 per person. To register, call ComLink's WEBC at 518-483-1261, extension 1012.
