What’s Coming Up in December

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year!”

We’ve reached the holiday season and it’s getting busy for many business owners. While events at the Centre slow down later in the month, we still have a couple of opportunities to learn and network.  Tis the season for markets and tradeshows so if we have missed anything please let us know in the comments below.

This session helps you explore the advantages and challenges of being self-employed. It will also provide you with answers to frequently asked questions including: What is a business plan?
