The Fight for Talent: How Small Businesses Can Win (and Win BIG)

Combined meetup with the Chicago Business Development Forum this session is all about talent – how to attract, retain and develop one of the most critical assets within your small business.

The Fight for Talent: How Small Businesses Can Win

You work hard. So don’t throw away the money you make, or worse: invest in the wrong people.

Join this session on how to recruit high-performing staff and develop leadership that counts. Walk away with top tips you can implement that will save your business money now, save you many potential headaches down the road and position you for massive growth this year. 

At the event you will learn how to:

•  Navigate Chicago’s talent pool to find the right people for the growth of your business

•  Grow your business from the inside out by developing your staff and avoiding “nightmare employees” that raid your coffers and keep your business stagnant

• Reduce employee turnover and build a team of growth-oriented, motivated high-performers by Implementing the "Three Steps to Leadership that Counts” instead of losing ground with the unfortunate more common practice of “Leadership that Costs.”


That’s right - you pay nothing to learn how to save money, time and energy and make even more. It’s a win-win. There’s no reason not to attend! 


6:00 - 6:30 pm  Network with other passionate small business owners. Food will be served.

6:30 - 7:15 pm  Presentation

7:15 - 8:00 pm  Q&A session and networking
