Unveiling our new Business Trends Webinar Series

Hi everyone -

One of my goals and responsibilities at The Chamber has been to increase our use of technology and help our members better use technology to increase and improve their business.  This has been driven by numerous and sometimes conflicting trends: a desire to better connect with our members, help our businesses thrive in the 21st century, cut costs and save time.  One of the ways we have been doing this is by working more with Social Media and webinars.

You may have noticed that we have been relying more on webinars lately to hold training sessions.  We've held webinars on a variety of topics, including building new customers, cold calling and using smart phones for business purposes.  We actually have a webinar next Friday on the benefits of Chamber membership.  These webinars have been very well attended - they provide low-cost, high quality professional development that does not create a massive burden on an attendees calendar.

To that end, we are pleased to unveil our new Business Trends Webinar Series.  With this series, members who present will be able to host a webinar on a topic of their choosing and in their area of expertise.  In the process, they will gain all of the marketing and promotional events that come with hosting a Chamber event, including promotions on our website, E-mail blasts, Connections publication and Social Networking platforms.  The webinars will be free for our members to attend - and as a result, Chamber members will be able to receieve free training in numerous areas that are relevant to their businesses and their lives.

For additional information, including pricing for hosts and availability, please get in touch with me at MikeS@lehighvalleychamber.org or call at 484-809-1796.

Have a great day!!
