Posted: Monday, June 7, 2010 9:04 pm
The Press 6.8.10 WestStar Leadership Program, the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development/Business Enterprise Resource Office, Tennessee Economic Council on Women and the University of Tennessee at Martin Regional Entrepreneurship and Economic Development Center will sponsor a women business owners opportunities conference, “Building Blocks for Success.”
The event is planned from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m., June 22, at the West Tennessee Center for Agricultural Research, located at 605 Airways Blvd., Jackson. The registration fee will be $40 per person, and a continental breakfast and lunch are included.
The conference offers a host of opportunities for women business owners who want to sell in the business-to-business (B2B) marketplace.
This multi-billion dollar market segment consists of buyers from government and private industry that purchase services, equipment, supplies, transportation, wholesale, retail, agriculture, finance or most any good or service.
This niche market offers contracting jobs that can help establish strategic relationships to increase a company’s competitive edge, so the business can grow exponentially.
Conference sessions will cover procurement opportunities, marketing, contracting, social networking, stress management and business branding. Also included will be one-on-one consultations with financial resources/services.
Jennifer Rawls, Tennessee Economic Development Council for Women executive director, Nashville, will open the conference.
As an optional activity following the conference, there will be an experiment station tour led by Carol Reese, ornamental horticulture specialist.
