Contributing to a national celebration of small businesses, the Tennessee Small Business Development at TTU will host events in DeKalb, Overton, Putnam, Smith, & White counties. The events are being co-organized with community partners and will take place May 1st through May 5th.

2016’s Upper Cumberland Small Business Saturday event saw the participation of over 80 different businesses across the region in post Black Friday shopping. The day generated a large number of sales for many businesses and we’re looking to double the number of participants for 2017.

Without question, Builders, Boomers, Gen X, and Millennials vote differently, work differently, buy differently, and want to be rewarded differently. So what are the differences between age groups, and what issues do the differences create? The Managing Millennials seminar gives leaders a profound understanding of the differences faced with managing a new generation of employees. But great leaders don’t just understand the differences, they also recognize the importance of putting those differences to work in finding more creative solutions to problems; fostering robust, productive dialog; and engaging team members in giving their highest and best contributions.

Just what exactly is your online reputation? Is it social media monitoring, or public relations? Most people have no idea how much it can impact your business and sales. Your customers are going to talk about you on social media, online review websites, and other platforms. Learning to find where your customers are talking, and how to become part of the conversation is a critical part of managing your online reputation. We’ll walk you through how to handle the good – and the bad!
