Event description
An interactive session designed to help business owners solidify their "why", craft clear messaging and reach clients/customers.

About this Event

For an aspiring business owner or talented creative, before launching your business things are extremely exciting. You simply cannot wait to share what you've imagined and built with the world. But with heavily saturated markets, you have to ask if your product or service is needed. Does it provide value to your intended client or customer?

To launch Small Business Week taking place from Oct. 20 – 26, the Small Business Enterprise Centre (SBEC), in partnership with PARO Centre for Women’s Enterprise, invites current and aspiring business owners (especially womxn entrepreneurs) to an interactive session that focuses on the importance of identifying your value proposition. We're determined to help you attract your intended client/customer with clear messaging, and grow as a business effectively.

To facilitate this powerful session, we're welcoming renowned storyteller and performance artist, Jacqui Du Toit. She will cover the importance of starting with "why", designing a story around your client/customer, and identifying the needs of your client/customer - all before you launch your exciting business.

We hope you’ll join us Monday, October 21 from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided. Lunch is included.
