About the Business Fundamentals Workshops

Peterborough & the Kawarthas Business Advisory Centre has launched the Business Fundamentals workshops based on demands from our clients for more dedicated sessions on three subject areas:
1) Business Planning, 2) Marketing & Sales, and 3) Profitable Operations. These workshops are setup to provide entrepreneurs with a full foundational learning experience. While you are able to choose which workshops best suit your needs, we recommend entrepreneurs attend all three Business Fundamentals Workshops (in any order).

This workshop is offered free of charge. Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the workshop to complete check-in.
