Charter Business® is demonstrating its commitment to the local small business community by offering Solutions for Small Business (SFSB), the second set in a series of free, video Webcasts for small business executives, in collaboration with Bloomberg Television®, Cisco and 14 of the nation’s top cable companies. The webcasts offer direct access to leading experts, who provide advice on topics critical to helping small businesses thrive, such as boosting productivity and protecting customer data. The first set of webcasts was offered in Fall 2009, and focused on marketing and accessing capital.
Hosted by Bloomberg Television anchor Monica Bertran, the upcoming "Boost Productivity with Powerful Web-based Tools" is scheduled on June 9 at 2:00 pm ET and will feature two speakers: Jim Blasingame, host of The Small Business Advocate® syndicated radio show and author of two books, Small Business is like a Bunch of Bananas and Three Minutes to Success; and Joslyn Faust, principal research analyst for Gartner, Inc., where she focuses on business and marketing strategies for small- and medium-size businesses. Speakers for the second Webcast of the year, "Protect Customer Data with Effective Cybersecurity Measures," scheduled on October 6 at 2:00 pm ET, will be announced this summer.
These interactive video webcasts, enabled by Cisco’s WebEx and TelePresence® collaboration solutions, will give participants the opportunity to present questions to Bertran and her guests in a live discussion. The webcasts are complimentary, and those interested in participating can register at www.solutionsforsmallbusiness.com. The website also offers a case study on how a small promotional company uses web tools to manage its business, and SFSB Report Series and podcasts, all of which delve more deeply into the webcast topics, as well as archived copies of the first set of SFSB webcasts.
Jim McGann Senior Vice President, Charter Business said that "Small businesses face unique strategic and operational challenges, and the current economic climate only makes those challenges more daunting. These free webcasts and resources demonstrate Charter Business’ commitment to supporting entrepreneurship."
