Columbus Chamber’s Leadership for Small Business Series: Anticipating Tomorrow’s Trends in Business

Launched in 2016, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership for Small Business Series highlights relevant, actionable information and networking for startups, small business owners and entrepreneurs. The series features insights, trends and best practices custom tailored to small and midsize firms, covering topics like mentoring, business development, recruiting, retention, marketing and more. As a unified voice for Central Ohio companies and the region’s premier advocate for a thriving small business community, the Columbus Chamber leverages and delivers content from its growing membership of nearly 1,400 businesses.

How can your business be prepared for the trends that will impact your operations over the next decade? Find valuable insights applicable to businesses of all industries at the Columbus Chamber’s Leadership for Small Business Series: Anticipating Tomorrow’s Trends in Business on Tuesday, October 30.

A group of expert panelists will share how businesses can elevate their bottom line now and in the future by anticipating trends in autonomous intelligence, social media, surveillance and the emergence of Gen Z. The conversation will be moderated by David Staley of OSU and feature:

  • Brad Griffith, Buckeye Interactive
  • Marcie Merriman, Ernst & Young
  • Scott Wabnitz, Wired Campaigns

“Business trends are constantly changing, no matter the industry” says Courtney West, marketing manager for the Columbus Chamber. “We have already seen technology immensely reshape our business landscape over the last decade, and we have seen brands who were not prepared to adapt or capitalize on those changes, which is why it’s important for our local business community to be well-versed with what might come next for their companies.”

Any business owner who has a vested interest in the growth of their company is encouraged to attend. Tickets are $25 for Columbus Chamber members and $40 for non-members.

Anticipating Tomorrow’s Trends in Business will be held at Red Brick Occasions 118 E. Main St. Networking begins at 7:30 a.m. with programming from 8 – 9:15 a.m. Coffee and light breakfast will be provided.
