Eastern Illinois University is sponsoring a workshop for small business owners next week that will focus on the “value” of their businesses.
The workshop, titled “What is the Value of My Small Business,” will teach business owners to think long term.
David McGrady, professor in EIU’s School of Business, will teach owners business strategies that look to the long term instead of only day-to-day operations.
The workshop is part of the “Time for a Tune-Up” series organized by the Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Education and Development (SEED) Center to provide local business owners with the necessary skills to succeed in their entrepreneurship ventures.
The workshop, which costs $39, will start at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 14 in Room 2020 in Lumpkin Hall at EIU.
Another workshop is also scheduled for 7 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 11 in Room 1040 in Lumpkin Hall at EIU. It is called “Chaos or Consistency: The Importance of Policy Documentation for Employees.”
The SEED Center at EIU is the interdisciplinary home for entrepreneurial education, research and community partnerships. The SEED Center’s primary focus is to foster collaboration among students, researchers, educators and practicing entrepreneurs to promote entrepreneurship through integrative learning.
