We often hear people say “the Small Business is the heart of America.” We at the DBC and, particularly, the DBC’s Small Business Committee (SBC) understand the importance and contributions of the Small Business to the local and national economy; hence our commitment to promote and bolster this group of hard working small business owners in our community.
The SBC participants are DBC leaders with the mission to help the small business community in the City of Doral. The SBC strives to create opportunities, relationships, generate publicity and develop a strong network of partners to work with the largest segment of the DBC member companies.
One crucial factor that needs to be highlighted is the SBC’s effort to provide its members with educational tools and seminars to help them grow professionally, as well as to develop the leadership skills needed to achieve success in their business endeavors.
The SBC recognizes that countless small businesses are looking to exit their current predicaments. Amid increased competition and uncertain economic outlook, they desperately need the knowledge and resources to compete and succeed in a highly competitive business environment. With this in mind, the SBC is working on the development of a series of powerful workshops, which among other things provide valuable information with relevant topics including Fraud Protection, Customer Service, Networking 201, Business Startups, Social Media for Business, Networking and Your Business, and more.
This is an exciting time for the DBC. 2013-2014 is filled with projects and plans that will take us to a new level of intensity and activities on behalf of the Doral business community. We already started working on the Small Business Expo, The DBC Institute, and other ideas yet to be finalized. At the Board level, we are ready to cast a clear vision for the future which will be focused on promoting and building profitable businesses that not only creates wealth and jobs, but are also concerned about supporting organizations caring for the less fortunate among us.
I personally invite you to attend to one of our SBC monthly meeting and see for yourself what this committee is all about, and what it can do for your business. If you are not a member, I recommend you contact us to start enjoying the benefits of this dynamic economic development organization.
