As we look ahead to brighter days, we are excited to announce the second staging of the Next Step Small Business Virtual Expo. The expo will be held on Wednesday, July 28th, 2021, from 7pm to 10pm EST under the theme Know Better – Grow Better.
As we cope under the onslaught of Covid-19, small businesses across Jamaica have suffered from total or partial shutdowns, supply chain disruptions, absence of physical interactions, financial challenges, and so on. In essence, small businesses across Jamaica are feeling the impact. We at Next Step Digital Solutions want to ensure Jamaica SMEs are equipped with the right tools and knowledge as they pivot and prepare for the new norm. At the Small Business Virtual Expo, we will be discussing:
- Relationships and Reputation – Keys to Entrepreneurial Success
- Essential Tools for Business Growth
- Time Management & Organization
- Staying Afloat During a Pandemic
- Small Business Start up
These presentations will help small business owners to develop entrepreneurial resilience during challenging times. As a small business owner, you should know and discover the best strategies to implement during economic down turns.
Therefore, it is important to prepare for the upcoming challenges as business owners by seizing available opportunities at our disposal to ensure business continuity and build the capability to mitigate those challenges. The Next Step Small Business Virtual Expo is one of the steps in that direction. It promises to provide all the business networking opportunities that you are used to as part of the physical expo. We will be using a world class web-based platform that will enable vendor booth set up. As such, business owners will be able to showcase their products virtually as well as speak to potential customers through one-to-one audio/video calls and or instant messaging. Equally, participants will have the opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs, business owners, potential customers, through video, live Q&A and much more. So, sitting from the comfort of your office or even home, you get to reach out to your target audience seamlessly through your computer or mobile device.
