Aviation Summit: Airports as Economic Hubs
at Small Biz Summit
On November 30, more than 100 small business owners,
entrepreneurs and young professionals gathered at our
Downtown Centre for the Board’s quarterly Small Business
Summit. Presented by RBC, the half-day program focused
on practical tactics and business benefits of building an
effective online and personal brand.
In a competitive landscape, personal branding is critical
for small business success. Online platforms such as
LinkedIn, Instagram and others can be powerful tools
to gain exposure and tell your brand story effectively.
From selecting the right LinkedIn photo to aligning your
personal image to your products/services, making a great
first impression can make all the difference to how you
connect with clients and prospects.
Participants attended two workshops led by brand experts
from Board of Trade member companies APEX Public
Relations and YellowPages. The sessions centered on
brand marketing in the digital world and cultivating
a personal brand story to create a compelling
connection with prospects.
