The Tempe Chamber of Commerce is offering a FREE Business Solutions Clinic for all Chamber members. Through its Business Resource Advantage Committee, the Tempe Chamber will organize and host this FREE event which provides instruction on six different areas of business. The event will be held at the Tempe Chamber offices on Feb. 25 from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m and business owners can book a 30-minute appointment to meet with an expert and ask questions pertaining to that business topic. The Tempe Chamber of Commerce is located at 909 East Apache Blvd.
As a member of the Business Resource Advantage Committee, I can tell you that this will be a great way for business owners to get answers from some top notch professionals willing to share their knowledge with fellow members of the Tempe Chamber. Do yourself and your business a favor and get some FREE advice!
Following is information about the event directly from the Chamber:
Tempe Chamber Member,
Is your company trying to do more with less? Are you stretching your budget while trying to maintain the level of customer service and expertise you pride yourself on?
