Halton Small Business Centre Presents: Stand Out in a Crowd – Marketing Strategies for Success

Thank you to all who have registered for “Stand Out in a Crowd – Marketing Strategies for Success”.  We are now officially SOLD OUT!

The Halton Small Business Centre’s annual Bridges to Better Business event is a unique educational and networking event that brings together small businesses from across Halton Region, and gives small businesses the opportunity to learn, share best practices and make valuable business connections. 

Ron Buist is a man with many talents. He is the former marketing director for Tim Hortons, a position he held for 24 years.   Have you ever wondered how he came up with the “Roll Up the Rim to Win” contest?  What his marketing tactics are?  Where he gets his ideas from? This is your opportunity to find out.  Ron will share his success stories and secrets with you as he talks about key issues that all businesses face and how to increase their own success.

New to this year’s program is a roundtable presentation and discussion.  We have invited Paula Hope, Founder and President of Referral Institute-Peel-Halton to speak on “Creating Referrals for Life”.  Most people believe that referrals are the best way to develop new clients for their business.  The BIG question is – How do you create referrals?  Paula’s presentation will define the three elements of referral success while providing the tips and tools needed for creating referrals for life.

In addition, there will be break-out sessions dealing with marketing tactics relevant to all business, addressing such questions as:

  • How do I increase sales and exposure using media?
  • How important is social media and is there a right and wrong way to use it?
  • How can I boost my business without breaking my pocket book?
  • Are there different promotional ideas I could use to market my business?

Our presenters will answer these questions plus many more!

The Bridges event takes place on Thursday, February 24th from 7:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. at the Oakville Conference Centre, 2515 Wyecroft Road, Oakville.

Thanks again to all who have registered.  This is a great opportunity for networking and learning!
