Focus on professional development in 2014

January 24, 2014

Professional development can help your small business grow.

The 5th annual Hiscox DNA of an Entrepreneur survey found that many small business owners failed to participate in any type of professional development or training in the prior year. While you may have few resources for training, it’s still an essential component of success for small business.

In 2014, why not commit to focusing on increasing your business knowledge? We’ve put together a list of small business webinars to attend throughout January and February that focus on social media marketing, data privacy and more. In February, we’re also hosting a webinar for SCORE that will share the ins-and-outs of small business insurance.

Register for one of the upcoming webinars below and return to our blog often as we curate the best virtual trainings for your small business.
