UW and Wyoming SBDC Network to Host CHANGE Webinar April 29

Small-business owners can learn to prepare for the uncertainty of change and how to turn it into opportunity Monday, April 29.

Marché Pleshette will lead a Wyoming Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Network webinar titled “CHANGE: How to Turn Uncertainty Into Opportunity” from 10 a.m.-noon. To register, go here. The registration fee is $15. The first 15 registrants will receive a copy of Pleshette’s book, “CHANGE: How to Turn Uncertainty Into Opportunity.”

The Wyoming SBDC Network offers business expertise to help Wyoming residents think about, launch, grow, reinvent or exit their business. The Wyoming SBDC Network is hosted by the University of Wyoming with state funds from the Wyoming Business Council and funded, in part, through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Small Business Administration.

The training opportunity is part of the Wyoming SBDC Network’s Portable Assistance Program. The program supports the economic recovery of Wyoming as it experiences ongoing boom and bust impacts in the energy industry.

The webinar will give entrepreneurs and small-business owners tips and strategies to deal with change no matter how or where it happens. The webinar will highlight how to build individual confidence through a predictable pattern of change; successfully lead people through the human side of change; optimize change management processes to achieve desired results; and turn the uncertainty of change into opportunity.
