"2010 Business Bits from BBB"
Anticipating a “ramp up” of the economy, small businesses must be at the forefront of reaping the benefits of renewed consumer spending. Your BBB is seeking your expertise in developing and implementing informational program topics designed to benefit the small business owner. Examples of topic outcomes would be reducing bottom line spending through new product, service or business concept, enhancing marketing knowledge and resources or increasing sales productivity. Your BBB is searching for topics that are not overused or redundant of other organizations efforts so innovation is appreciated!
A secondary benefit of BBB Business Bits is to provide a networking opportunity for business community AND to offer the program venues throughout the state, not just greater Baltimore region.
Ideally, topics for first two quarters 2010 would be identified and marketed by December 1, 2009 with a kick-off or launch of Business Bits series at a larger networking venue.
Submit a brief presentation concept with the following “bits” in mind:
- Message must be conveyed in 45 minutes maximum
- Target audience is small business owner/team
- Attendance goal of 25-40 BBB accredited businesses and guests
- Presentation may be single or panel presentation format
- Topic must provide “value” and is not to be simply used as a sales tool – there must be something given/provided
- Presenters must be BBB Accredited Businesses and in good standing with BBB
Proposal should begin with presentation concept with identified benefit(s) to the attendee and include general concept ideas. This is an “open” invitation in that BBB will accept proposals at any time but BBB would like to have at least four topics selected and ready for marketing by end of 2009. Therefore, to be in the initial line up, ideas/concepts must be submitted to BBB by October 15, 2009. Submit proposals to:
