2016 Small Business Week!

October 8, 2016


This Year's Small Business Week is happening from October 17th to 21st.  The KDCC is hosting 3 workshops during the week which will all be held at the Kapuskasing Golf Club. These workshops are a great learning opportunity for businesses and organizations as well as anyone in the workforce who needs a little help with certain aspects of their businesses regarding their employees, the labor laws or even thinking about expansion and development. We listened to our members and we believe to have interesting sessions for our community to take part in.  


To register for any of the following workshops, please call us at 705-335-2332 or visit our Facebook page.

Monday, October 17

Presented by: Dr. Walter Staples

The workshops are ideal for business owners and managers as well as not-for- profits. Dr. Staples will discuss business management styles

that engage and involve employees, improve their productivity and performance, and help instill a culture of “customer-centricity” in an organization. 

Dr. Staples’ interactive workshop will deal with important topics such as managing different age generations from Baby Boomers to Millennials, investing in employee development, managerial styles and best practices, employee responsibility, and how to focus an organization on the customer. He will also help organization managers and owners understand how to build strong, meaningful relationships with employees. These relationships are the critical link that ties together employee engagement, customer focus, and business results.
