Our Lead, Connect, Grow 101s are the perfect space for you to work alongside other entrepreneurs on growing your business in a workshop-style setting. Each session will focus on one of our three pillars – lead, connect and grow– and on a specific goal shared by other small business owners.

Key points you will learn:

  1. Having a genuine conversation with people creates a link.
  2. This is Winnipeg, where it seems everyone can find a linking connection of some kind. Seek to move from ‘cold’ to ‘warm.’
  3. When asked, try to find a way to say ‘yes’
