Blog : Our Next Green Business Learning Series is November 20

By Sam | Oct 28, 2014 | in

Are you a small business owner? Do you have questions about social media? What if you need to know how to hire the right employee for the job, or fire them if it doesn’t work out? Our Green Business Learning Series will answer those questions for you.

Green Alliance Business Partners and Cardholders are invited to join us from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on November 20th for refreshments and an engaging and informative seminar from two of our Business Partners, Social Kitchen and Cultural Chemistry! This is a unique opportunity to bring small businesses together to discuss strategies that work best for them.

These days, it can be tough as a small business owner. Not only are you expected to run your business, but sometimes you’re the assistant director, hiring manager, marketing department, front of house, janitor, etc. - it may feel completely overwhelming. That’s why we’re doing a Green Business Learning Series, to help you with the important elements of your business.

Cary Bowman is the owner of social media consulting business Social Kitchen. She will begin the night with a presentation on the importance of social media for small businesses, and how to grow your social media following (and your sales in the process). Mirjam IJstma worked in corporate HR for years before starting her own firm, Cultural Chemistry. After Cary, she will answer your questions about techniques regarding how to hire the best candidate (here’s a hint: social media helps!) or fire someone who isn’t getting the job done. Additionally, there will be a segment about how to get the best work out of your employees. There is time allotted afterwards to ask more questions, or to network with other businesses present.

This event is free for GA Business Partners and official members. If you plan on attending, please email katie@greenalliance.biz to RSVP. Don’t miss out on this great educational opportunity, and sign up for our email list to be in the loop for our future events!
