As most business owners can attest, being the boss is equal parts exhilarating and exhausting. It can be fun and refreshing to find new solutions and take on challenges. On the flip-side, there is a lot that rests on your shoulders as you look to establish, grow, and sustain your company.
Getting plugged in with people who understand your special breed of small business, who can give meaningful feedback, and who you can bounce ideas off of can be a challenge.
Often you can find other small business owners to network with in your local market, but few people outside the industry understand all the complexities you work with on a day-to-day basis. Can we all agree that there is tremendous value in connecting with people who are or have been in your shoes?
Building a network to foster relationships can help you discover fresh and effective methods to grow your sales, connect with customers in new ways, and expand your professional skills — all things you need to maintain a thriving business. And one of the best ways to do this is to attend a conference.
Conferences are a great way to meet business professionals, attend events tailored to what you’re looking to learn, and obtain more insight into how other businesses like yours work and how you can keep up with the ever-changing marketplace.
As you consider attending a conference, there certainly are many to choose from. But how many of these events pack the 1-2 punch of helping you find a sounding board of peers who truly “get it” and hone in on helping you solve the other big challenge of finding and retaining employees?
Enter CEDIA Business Xchange.
CEDIA took notice of the needs of business owners and their unique challenges, and as a result, Business Xchange was created to provide a platform dedicated to building relationships, sharing information, and growing as business owners.
It can be difficult finding the time to meet and talk with others in the home technology industry, especially owners and managers. But with the Xchange, everyone is under one roof, in one place, and ready to get to work. Time to connect with your peers is definitely a priority, and there are plenty of opportunities to network and exchange ideas built into the Business Xchange schedule.
At Business Xchange, you will not only get a chance to dig in with people in the industry, but you’ll also experience expert-led workshops tailor-made to help you build a dynamic and committed team. You’ll learn winning strategies to hire for attitude, tackle performance challenges, and retain, motivate, and empower the best employees. You’ll also come away with a specialized action plan ready to implement immediately.
A conference built just for you, with all your needs in mind. What are you waiting for?
