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.
In our first Lead workshop, we will be focusing on sustainability. In partnership with Efficiency Manitoba, The Chamber works to promote sustainability through energy and cost-saving retrofits, rebates, project funding, and Energy Efficiency Assessments for our members.
At this session, you’ll be able to learn more about how your business can save energy and reduce operating costs by taking part in Efficiency Manitoba programming. Attendees will also learn more from our Climate and Energy Advocate, who is available to help Chamber members apply for the right Efficiency Manitoba programs to ease the financial stress that businesses perceive when switching over to energy-efficient products.
