Beaverton Business Summit date and content is announced. Check social at @BeavBiz2018

 

(Beaverton, Ore.)  — “Businesses set up for success are those that adapt at an increasing rate of change,” said Steve Smelley, Chief Operating Officer at PayneWest Insurance, the Presenting Sponsor for the 2018 Beaverton Business Summit.

 

PayneWest is partnering with the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce to roll out the annual Beaverton business event, set for Thursday, November 8.

 

“Content at the Summit comprises key business-to-business topics designed to be immediately relevant and showcase networking opportunities, so firms can be local, stay local and grow locally,” said Chamber President Lorraine Clarno. “This is a key event illuminating how the chamber works to promote every aspect of our local economy.”

 

Morning keynoter Victoria Trabosh, a TEDx presenter who espouses a leadership-built-on-wisdom style, will present ‘Leading Change and Facing the Storm,’ about best practices of how businesses of all sizes and shapes must learn to manage change. The afternoon keynote by Bill Tracy, vice president at Structured Communications Systems, homes in on the ‘New User Economy’ to show businesses how to adapt and compete using trends set by large companies.

 

Content and topics will feature sessions including, “The New Language of Business for Young Professionals,” “3 Proven Steps to Eliminate Abrasive Behaviors (and Harassment) in the Workplace,” “What’s Up Beaverton: Up Close with Beaverton’s Community and Economic Development Experts,” and “Local Electeds: Sharing Oncoming Priorities,” as well as emerging intel on diversity and inclusion, tax law updates, health/wellness in the workplace, social media trends, and small business resources.

 

“We are also excited to announce the event will also feature the Summit Biz Exch@nge, a local marketplace designed for companies and professionals to interface and network among attendees,” said Rhonda Reister, manager of Beaverton’s E-Suites, and  chair of the Beaverton Business Summit 2018.

Beaverton Business Walk

September 13th, 2017

Beaverton Business Walk presented by Wells Fargo

Tuesday, October 10, 2017 from 12-4 PM

Beaverton Chamber of Commerce, 12600 SW Crescent St, Ste 160, Beaverton, 97005

We need all volunteer hands on deck to visit retailers in Beaverton. As part of our high touch approach, we are checking in with Beaverton-based businesses to ask three questions. How is business? How is doing business in Beaverton? What’s your biggest business challenge? While we can’t promise solutions, we have found that we can often connect folks to resources and often improve their situation. It’s a great experience that allows you to learn a lot about the businesses in our community we don’t even know are here. Our volunteers in the past have loved it and look forward to the next chance. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Jon-Michael at jonmichael@beaverton.org.
