Welcome to NEXTstep 2018 Business Growth Workshop Series.    

These workshops are for: Leaders and Business Owners looking to develop a plan for strategic business growth; Building connections and relationships with a diverse network of professionals; Developing real skills and knowledge to take your business to the next level.

Often, participants come to a workshop, leave with great ideas and then forget about them in the hustle and bustle back at the office.  You will leave these workshops with tangible strategies to implement in your own business. The NEXTstep 2018 Business Growth Workshop Series will give you access to expertise, allow for time to generate ideas, brainstorm with peers during the working session and leave with applicable strategies to help you develop your strategic growth plan.
