Congratulations to Roger Pierce and Andrew Patricio at BizLaunch, who have found a new platform for their business-boosting training courses. They have just announced an alliance with Staples Business Depot that will see them holding free small business seminars in Staples stores across the GTA.
It’s also a test. If they get the turnout they're looking for, Staples could be holding more in-store sessions right across Canada.
It’s a great deal for Andrew and Roger, who have been working very hard to promote small business through their courses for the past three or four years. It’s probably also a good deal for Staples, by showing it’s serious about helping its customers succeed.
The sessions include topics such as Your Business Plan in 10 Easy Steps, How to Market Your Business on the Internet, and How to Sell Like a Pro. Not exactly brain surgery - but it's exactly the solid, practical info most business owners need.
“Almost one million Canadians will start a small business during the next year,” says Roger Pierce. “There’s a huge thirst for small business learning and these in-store seminars will make it easy for entrepreneurs to get it.”
You’ll find the seminar schedule here.
Courses start Oct. 10 and run through Nov. 30 on weekday evenings (7-8:30 pm) at 13 GTA Staples stores. Best of all, according to the press release, “Seminar attendees also receive money-saving product offers and a chance to win prizes.”
