The daylong event will feature a series of webinars tackling two very important and timely issues – workforce recruitment and debt repayment. The webinars will be targeted at small business entrepreneurs and will include a Q+A session. 2021 marks the seventh consecutive year that the Bridges event has been held in Cornwall.
“These small businesses did not just conform to new regulations, but were able to innovate new and exciting ways to conduct business that will not only take them to the end of the pandemic but will prepare them for the future,” says Greg Pietersma, Executive Director of the Cornwall Chamber of Commerce.
For the second year in the row, the Bridges event will be mostly held online. In addition to the webinars, an in-person networking reception will take place in the evening. Attendees will hear from local experts on the importance of dealing with mental health issues. Food and refreshments will be served. Attendance is limited to 50 people and all local health and safety protocols will be in full effect.
“We are excited to showcase our entrepreneur’s determination and ability to adapt in light of the pandemic,” said Lesley Thompson, Executive Director of ACCFutures.
