July 7th, we had an amazing opportunity to showcase some of the unique ways that business meetings happen everyday in Peterborough & the Kawarthas. BAC at the Bean (#BACattheBean), brought our Business Advisory Centre consultations to the freshness of Peterborough’s urban waterfront at the Silver Bean Cafe. We had a number of clients interested in setting up their consultation meeting at the Silver Bean (because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want to meet on a beautiful patio overlooking the water?) as well as a number of drop-ins looking for information on the complimentary business support services offered by Peterborough Economic Development’s Business Advisory Centre.

This new concept was warmly received by our clients when we invited them to “take it outside” with us at the lovely patio at the Silver Bean. I met with two Starter Company clients at BAC at the Bean – one new client and one established client who has a videography/photography business doing both commercial and personal shoots.

Looking forward, Peterborough Economic Development’s Business Advisory Centre is looking to add this to their regular schedule and expanding the outreach event to include a variety of locations throughout the City and County.

Next Thursday (July 28) will be our next #BACattheBean. Interested in setting up a consultation for that day? Contact the Business Advisory Centre to setup an appointment – or stop by the Silver Bean to learn more.
