Small business is the backbone of the business industry locally. With 98% of businesses in the Hastings, Prince Edward and Lennox and Addington being classed as “small”, these business owners are often at a loss as to how to grow their business, hire and retain staff and market what they do best. The Bridges to Better Business event held each year is one that tackles key issues that small businesses are struggling with and presents solutions in the form of a day filled with presenters and workshops.
CFWD is a key sponsor to this event. It is expected that it will be held in early 2020 and that 25-30 small businesses will participate.
