The purpose of the event was to showcase specialized training programs that directly address the needs of local businesses. Ideas for what trainings were needed were solicited from the Chamber of Commerce membership, compiled by the director Sheyrl Kelsh and then related trainings were developed by the CLIMB Center.

The business symposium was the first in a series of symposiums created to engage local businesses and illustrate what PCC has to offer them. The three trainings provided were at the June symposium were, “The Four Pillars of Digital Marketing,” “Cultivating Customer Connections,” and “Creating Memorable 15-Second Business Introductions.” The event was very well attended with more than 40 local businesses represented.

PCC offers this limited open forum as an extension of the respectful, well-reasoned discourse we expect in our classroom discussions. As such, we welcome all viewpoints, but monitor comments to be sure they stick to the topic and contribute to the conversation. We will remove them if they contain or link to abusive material, personal attacks, profanity or spam. This is the same behavior we require in our hallways and classrooms. Our online spaces are no different.
