Name: 2017 Strive to Thrive! Business Workshop & Expo
Date: September 21, 2017
Time: 1:00 PM - 7:00 PM PDT
Registration: Sorry, public registration for this event has been closed.
Event Description:

September is National Preparedness month and to support this national effort the Tualatin Chamber of Commerce invites you to attend our annual Strive to Thrive event.  

When you think about risk are you paralyzed by fear, or do you see opportunity?
Do daily demands of your business keep you from being bold in your actions?
Does planning for disaster seem overwhelming?
Do you have the relationships in your community to help you through a major challenge?

The act of "Turning Risk Into Opportunity" stems from a proactive mindset. We all have it; we just need to learn how to turn it on in our businesses. By becoming intentional we can remove fear and turn our greatest risks into opportunities that others can't see. Not only can we accelerate our short term business growth, but we create a more resilient and sustainable business model.

Come to the 2017 Strive to Thrive Business Workshop & Expo on September 21st and
  • Meet business leaders and experts
  • Learn critical information
  • Discover local resources
Make your business stronger than it is today and strive to turn your greatest risks into opportunity.

Applications will be processed and tables assigned on a first-come-first-served basis per category. Each category (listed on the application) is limited to ensure a diverse representation of B-2-B companies.
