Don’t miss the 2nd Annual Hawaii Small Business Conference at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on May 2 & 3, 2018, presented by the County of Maui Mayor’s Office of Economic Development and Maui Economic Development Board.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Plan, Build, Grow: Mapping A Pathway to Success.”

Do you want to …

  • see better results in your business?
  • improve your customer and employee relationship?
  • create a work environment where employees can thrive?
  • promote your business, even on a limited budget?
  • keep up with social media trends?
  • know the latest tax strategies that can benefit your business?
  • adapt to an ever-changing business world?

If you answered YES to any of these questions then the Hawaii Small Business Conference is the place to be. Learn important strategies for business success from national and local business leaders. .

Hear from experts, and successful business owners, on Customer and Employee Engagement, Business Growth and Scaling, Social Media Management, Innovation, Tax Strategies and more.  Network with fellow business and community leaders.

Among this year’s presenters will be Keynote speaker Karen McCullough, a nationally known customer and employee engagement expert who inspires change. McCullough helps organizations and leaders cut through the generational stereotypes and get back to reality by leveraging their team’s strengths, enriching the work environment, and driving better results. For the last 15 years, she has been developing creative solutions and implementing innovative methods inspiring people to connect, collaborate, and welcome change. Each of her presentations brings a realistic perspective on the future of work.

During the conference, McCullough’s presentation, Going Beyond Your Brand – Delivering WOW Service, will focus on how businesses are redefining their vision and mission by expanding their brands through effective customer and employee engagement.

McCullough believes, “Your brand is the core of your company, the heart of your business, the soul of your culture, and the foundation for a WOW customer experience. The way you get Beyond the Brand is through employee and customer engagement.”

According to Teena Rasmussen, Director of County of Maui Office of Economic Development, “Business owners are so busy working in their businesses on a daily basis. They rarely take time to step out to reflect and work on their own businesses and almost never have time or funds to fly to a mainland conference. The Hawaii Small Business Conference offers these owners a very affordable way to receive cutting edge information by nationally known speakers right here on Maui.

You can attend the all day conference on Wednesday, May 2 and/or any of the smaller group workshops on Thursday, May 3.
