08/16/2023, ABAOCheld their monthly CNPP Breakfast Training series with this month’s topic being “SBA’s Federal Certification Programs” presented by Alex Salas from the SBA, totalling 2 hours of training given to 20 attendees.
Alex was a great speaker to have at our training. He had so much information to share with our attendees that they requested him back as a speaker! The SBA provided a lot of beneficial education for small business owners during our 2‑hour training session.
Our strategy behind this session was to educate our small business owners on the steps for certification.
By now, many have learned the importance of certification and are now interested in how they can get certified and how much it will cost them. The questions were flowing in and it perfectly segwayed into a great conversation during our networking hour.
Our attendees got a personal invitation from Alex to utilize his network. He promised everyone there that if he got an email from them, he would personally make sure that they were directed to the right people with a proper introduction. We hope that this relationship/connection will help these business owners get the answers they need to move forward.
