Talking Business Seminar February 24 Free & Open to Public
The Business and Computer Technology Division and the Costa Leadership Institute at Northwest Florida State College (NWFSC) will host a "Talking Business" Seminar on Friday, February 24 at 1:30 p.m. titled "Entrepreneurship." The seminar is free and open to the public and will be held in the new Costa Leadership Institute facilities on the third floor of the Student Services Center at NWFSC's Niceville Campus. Leading the seminar will be NWFSC professors Dr. Tom Tomerlin and Keith Burns and Costa Leadership Institute Director Julie Cotton, along with local business leaders Pat Byrne of Valparaiso Realty and Victoria Morrison of Cracky J's Coffee Shop.
The topic of entrepreneurship is important to highlight in light of today's weak economy. Entrepreneurs serve to fuel economic growth, create jobs, and sell the goods and services we need. After a brief discussion of the economic importance of entrepreneurship by Dr. Tomerlin and Professor Burns, a panel of local business owners will provide their insights on starting and running a business. The discussion is sure to be of interest to anyone that ever considered starting their own business.
"Talking Business" is a quarterly presentation that explores timely and relevant topics in the fields of business, economics, accounting, computer technology and leadership development. The seminars are free and open to the public and consist of an informal presentation followed by an open discussion on the topic. Groups should call ahead to ensure seating.
