About this Event Series:

The entire series is free to the public and attracts a lot of different types of businesses and business owners ranging from entrepreneurs to restauranteurs to large non-profits and companies. Last years series was 10 weeks and averaged 50 people per session. Last year the sessions were only one and a half hours; this year the sessions are two hours, so we can include a guest speaker during the 20-30 extra minutes we added on each topic. Dr. Mitroff will speak about products and give practical hands on advice at each talk. Attendees always walk away with clear actionable tasks they can preform before the next session.

This event is being sponsored through the generous support of Chevron.
