Sooke chamber of commerce gives business a boost

Business Boost is a free drop in think tank session

Have you heard of Business Boost?

It is a new service we are offering at the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce that creates a welcoming space which facilitates connections and dialogue.

Business Boost is a free drop in think tank session we host to help you overcome your business challenges. It is open to all businesses in the Sooke Region not just chamber members.

The aim is to offer peer to peer mentoring, idea sharing, networking and problem-solving. The purpose is to help those that might be stumped with an issue, want to freshen things up or just need a sounding board beyond their usual support system.

Last week was our first meeting, and we deemed it a great success. Those that attended received help with editing, made new contacts and found the help they were looking for. If we are not able to help you directly, we probably know the people that can.

No need to RSVP, just come on down. Bring your own note taking devices, drinks and snacks.

Sessions are hosted every other Wednesday at the chamber office from 9am-1pm. The next meeting is July 5.
