For Immediate Release: October 12, 2018
Regina Public Library offers programs for entrepreneurs and start-ups during Small Business Week.
Small business is big business in the Regina community, contributing significantly to our economy and offering numerous job opportunities. But the road to entrepreneurial success can be paved with challenges.
From October 15 to October 18 Regina Public Library will celebrate Small Business Week by offering a week-long series of workshops and information sessions tackling common issues faced by small business owners and entrepreneurs.
The week will kick off with a launch event at Central Library, offered in partnership with Economic Development Regina and Audacity YQR. It will feature a panel discussion between three leading Regina entrepreneurs and business professionals: Leslie Genoway, Owner of LG Fitness, Glow Juicery and Glow Strong, Thomas Benjoe, President of FHQ Developments Ltd., and Tyson Liske, General Manager of Trademark Homes.
The information sessions and workshops offered during the week will focus on topics such as labour standards, loan requests, tax strategies, leadership, the psychology of success and the importance of storytelling in business. They will take place at various RPL locations throughout the week and will be lead by experts in each field. All sessions are offered free of charge.
“An important part of our mandate here at Regina Public Library is contributing to the prosperity of our community,” says Jeff Barber, Library Director and CEO. “Business owners and young professionals don’t always have the means to seek quality information. By providing expert advice for free, helping them utilize our resources, and facilitating networking among professionals, the library delivers needed support to our entrepreneurial community.”
