Muskoka entrepreneurs invited Better Business Conference March 5

Conference is about “information, education and inspiration,” says Terri Paxton-Smith.

MUSKOKA — It takes a community to build a business.

That’s the theme of the 13th annual Bridges to Better Business Conference on March 5 at the Algonquin Theatre in Huntsville.

The all-day event (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) is celebrating Muskoka’s hundreds of  successful small business owners working and building the district one customer at a time.

The theme this year is Building Your Business Through Community.

It’s about “information, education and inspiration,” says Terri Paxton-Smith, managing business consultant at the Muskoka Small Business Centre, which is putting on the conference.

With speakers, round-table discussions, a panel of experts and highlighting a number of local success stories, the jam-packed seven hours will provide eager entrepreneurs a unique venue to help build their businesses and address their concerns related to small business entrepreneurship.

Business owners will be able to participate in facilitated round-table talks on key business issues, visit service provider booths, gain valuable perspective from a panel of experts on shared local challenges, and be inspired through the stories of successful, local businesses, as well as a renowned keynote speaker, yet to be announced.

The cost is only $49 until Feb. 22, and it includes breakfast and lunch, door prizes, networking, and more. After that it is $59, still a bargain.

Bridges to Better Business is an initiative of the Ministry of Research & Innovation (MRI) in partnership with Canada Business Ontario (CBO) and The Town of Bracebridge.
