GB Chamber launches the 2014 Business Seminar


Throughout the Bahamas and worldwide, millions of people are living the dream of owning and running their own business.

With this in mind, the Grand Bahama Chamber of Commerce (GBCC) announced the start of its 2014 Small Business Seminar Series with the launch of its first seminar, "Entrepreneurship 101" slated for Thursday, February 20 at the GBCC from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Entrepreneurship 101 promises to be a power packed one-day seminar geared towards persons who are interested in starting their own business. This one-day course will teach the basics of entrepreneurship. Participants will learn how to assess their own entrepreneurial capabilities, outline and evaluate a business and product idea, identify their target market and customers, develop a value proposition, understand different types of business ownership and structures, create key business planning documents and much more.

Chamber's second vice president and chairman of the Small Business Development and Education Committee, Billie Bowe, will facilitate the seminar. "Any thriving economy is fueled by the sustainability of small and medium sized businesses. Bahamians now more than ever should consider starting their own businesses." 

She noted that participants will have the opportunity to consider if entrepreneurship is right for them and learn the essential steps of creating their own business. At the end of the training, participants will have a solid foundation to start their entrepreneurial journey.

As space is limited organisers are suggesting that interested persons register early, the cost of the one-day seminar is fifty dollars for Chamber members and seventy-five for non-Chamber members. This includes a continental breakfast, course materials and a Certificate of Completion awarded by Benchmark Consulting Services.

The GB Chamber of Commerce continues its commitment to serving as a business resource to small, medium and large businesses in the Grand Bahama community. A wide variety of informative, high quality, professional seminars and workshops covering topics from Budgeting and Financial Reporting to Leadership and Business Management will be conducted throughout the year. These sessions are opened to all members of the Chamber as well the general public.

For more information and to register, persons are asked to contact the Chamber of Commerce at 352-8329 or email mferguson-gbcc@live.com.
