SBDC at UW-Green Bay to partner for June 3 peer-to-peer learning demo event

The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is partnering with the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College Entrepreneur Resource Center for a peer learning demonstration event from 7-9:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 3 at NWTC.

The PeerSpectives® roundtable demonstration is a trial session designed to immerse participants in the peer-to-peer roundtable process. The roundtables enhance leadership abilities and improve decision-making for leaders, rather than leaving business owners and entrepreneurs to make decisions — and often take unnecessary risks — in isolation. During the June 3 session, participants will be immersed in the roundtable process, gaining a deeper understanding of how these confidential and highly focused meetings can help individuals confront their most urgent and important business challenges.

The hallmarks of the PeerSpectives® program include the use of trained facilitators; the experience of sharing, rather than simply giving advice; participation of individuals from noncompeting industries; and utilization of a structured protocol that ensures balanced discussion and releases the group’s potential. Ryan Kauth, director of the SBDC at UW-Green Bay, is a trained and certified PeerSpectives® facilitator. He co-facilitates a Chief Financial Officer roundtable and a small business owners roundtable in conjunction with the Sheboygan County Chamber of Commerce.

Registration is required for the June 3 event, and is available online at www.eventbrite.com/e/peer-to-peer-round-table-demo-day-tickets-11624979627. Email erc@nwtc.edu with questions.
