Better Business Summit 2018

October 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


The Better Business Summit will be taking place on Wednesday, October 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Red Lion Hotel (formerly the Raddison) in Cromwell, CT—just 20 minutes south of Downtown Hartford. It will encompass the theme of “One Day to Improve your Business”. You’ll gain tools to take your business to the next level from people who have done it themselves—an opportunity to “sharpen your saw” (Stephen Covey) and beat your competition. And even if it’s not “your” business that you’re looking to improve, this event is still 100% for you. Look at it as a professional development opportunity—a way to improve your future. The audience will be vast—we’re expecting business owners, entrepreneurs, students, key influencers and everyone in between.

A series of 12 workshop sessions will be run by subject-matter experts throughout the day, including:
 How to succeed as a first-time business owner or manager
 Attracting and training the best talent for your business
 How to obtain free money to grow your company
 How to use your website to produce sales
 How to maintain cybersecurity for your business
 How to create great sales & marketing videos
 Managing Customer Reviews
 Managing Customers
 How to market your business on the internet & through Social Media

Our first keynote speaker is Larry Janesky who started his business at 17-years-old and now employs 385 people at CT Basement Systems and Contractor Nation. And, in the afternoon, we’ll have Bobby Valentine, former professional baseball player and winningest coach, Athletic Director at Sacred Heart University, and CT homegrown entrepreneur; he is also the owner of Bobby V’s restaurants and Bobby V’s Sports Academy.

This is a great networking and professional development opportunity—regardless of where you stand in your career.
