In addition to the usual networking opportunities, each meeting also features speakers on educational topics related to small business.

According to Sean Murphy, RMT, owner of Valley Healing Massage and program director for the HBBA, “This month’s theme is Community Involvement In Business—a topic which will be addressed through brief, but dynamic presentations by three members of the community.

Jakob Christoph, representing the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce, will speak about the opportunities and resources provided to businesses through the chamber; he will also address how small businesses can connect with the larger business community through the Chamber.

Pieter Vorster, owner of C1ontinual Palingenesis – Social Media Solutions, is a communicator/educator/activist who will speak on the concept of “open money,” illustrating with the Comox Valley Community Way model –a  functional complement to the current economic model for doing business, which is also approved by CRA.

Brad Bayly of the United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island will speak about how the United Way brings people and resources together to create solutions that positively impact our community, making it healthier and more vibrant.

Members and non-members are invited to attend.  There is no charge for the meeting.

The CVHBBA is hosting a Small Business Expo on Oct. 14 at the Florence Filberg Centre to help showcase small businesses as well.
