The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay will partner with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College and several other organizations to present the first-ever Business Success Summit Wednesday, Nov. 19 at NWTC.
This daylong summit is being held as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week Nov. 17-23. More than 100 Northeastern Wisconsin entrepreneurs, innovators and small business owners are expected to attend the event, which is designed to provide education and inspiration while supporting business and economic growth. Individuals who are starting a business or looking to take their business to the next level are encouraged to attend.
The event will feature three keynote speakers. Jason Kotecki, an internationally recognized professional speaker, artist and author, will present “Lemonade Stand 2.0: 8 often-overlooked principles from childhood,” during the morning welcome session. Lisa Johnson, vice president of Entrepreneurship and Innovation for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, will offer a talk titled “Wisconsin Programs and Initiatives for Businesses” during a general session in the early afternoon. Ralph Heath, an author, consultant and keynote speaker specializing in innovative leadership, marketing and wellness, will conclude the day by presenting “Innovative Leadership: Embrace risk taking and learning from failure.” Breakout sessions in the “launch,” “grow” and “thrive” tracks will provide attendees with valuable information based on the status of their entrepreneurship journey.
