Information is power. The more you learn, the better your opportunity for success.

We know from experience that business skills training is incredibly important for small business owners. Most of us dive in with a passion and a dream, but not all of us have the management and accounting skills we will really, seriously need.

Some basic business skills are fundamental to becoming successful. Others are constantly changing.

Critical basic skills include forward planning, financial management, marketing and operational control. Today’s business world also requires a sharp awareness of communications and social media.

We offer excellent seminars and webinars, workshops and other training events to help you ramp up your skills and knowledge.

    A great option is managing your social media using your mobile device. In this webinar, I’ll share the on-the-go process I've developed over the past 3 years to keep my social media running smoothly -- no matter where I am. It's mobile-app heavy, so you might want to keep your phone or tablet handy to try things out as we go.

  • Human Right Concerns for Small Businesses 2015

    “Human Rights Concerns for Small Businesses”

    Many small businesses and entrepreneurs are unaware of how The Saskatchewan Human Rights Code may impose obligations on the conduct of their business. The Code prohibits small businesses from discriminating against their employees or customers on the basis of 15 characteristics (“prohibited grounds”). While large employers will often rely on human resource specialists or legal counsel to provide them with advice, these are not normally viable options for small business owners.

    In this webinar, you will learn more about the prohibited grounds of discrimination and also the duty to accommodate. You will learn about common mistakes new businesses make, and straightforward ways that you can respect individual rights while growing your business.
