Small businesses are the backbone of our community. The St. George Area Chamber of Commerce believes the overall prosperity of our local economy hinges largely on their successes, which is why on June 13 small businesses will converge at the Dixie Convention Center when the Chamber hosts the Small Business Summit and Business Expo.
The Summit will provide the opportunity for small business owners, managers and entrepreneurs to network and learn new tools, tactics and strategies, gain practical skills and make invaluable connections to help support the growth and prosperity of small business in Utah, especially southern Utah.
This-full day conference, sponsored by Innovation Plaza at Dixie State University, will feature keynote speakers and breakout sessions designed to inspire, inform and provide businesses the tools they need to succeed.
Keynote speakers include Mitt Romney and Utah Governor Gary Herbert.
Breakout sessions will include:
Cybersecurity: "Differentiating between Security vs. Risk Assessment, Vulnerability Scanning, and Penetration Testing" with Adam Austin
Tax laws with Jeff McKenna
Human resources with Gloria Bertram from Stephen Wade Auto
Building Websites for Online Success with Ron Brown
"Run, Fight, Hide" with St. George Police Department
The Summit will also feature a panel of representatives from the Governor's Office of Economic Development, World Trade Center Utah, EDCUtah, USTAR and others.
