May is for pivots (and actionable advice).

May 1, 2020 by Lee Erickson

Get recommendations from experts in 25 minutes.

No doubt if you’re a business owner, you’re having to figure out how to re-think your business. Whether it’s how best to adapt the sales process, stay connected to your customers, manage remote teams, or tap into new revenue streams, you’re likely pivoting in multiple ways, at mock speed.

With that in mind, we’ve created the TOP 5 IN TWENTY-FIVE virtual Speaker Series. Each Wednesday in May, we’ll chat with experts who’ll share their top five recommendations for adapting to the current market conditions.

Support local businesses too.

To hep support local businesses, we’re raffling off a $25 gift card from the State College Downtown Improvement District, redeemable at over 100 downtown State College businesses.*

One random winner will be selected each week during the TOP 5 IN TWENTY-FIVE webinar. And, at the end of the series, we will randomly select one winner, from those who attend the most TOP 5 IN TWENTY-FIVE events in May, to receive a $50 gift certificate.
