Business Consortium Workshop Series

GREAT BUSINESSES DON’T JUST ADAPT TO THE NEEDS OF THEIR CUSTOMERS. To be successful, they must understand the needs of their workforce. It’s about more than hiring the right people. It’s also providing the right opportunities to grow as professionals.

Hawkeye’s Business Consortium Workshop Series will equip employees with the critical skills needed for professional development. This series will focus on specific business topics vital for success such as providing feedback, solving problems, being a person of influence, improving productivity, and marketing and selling fundamentals. You’ll leave each session with valuable knowledge to apply at your workplace the next day.

One workshop, each month, October through August from 8:30–11:00am.
