'Finding and Keeping Talent' Webinar Slated for December 2

The American Farm Bureau Federation, together with the Georgetown University McDonough School of Business Global Social Enterprise Initiative, announces the fifth in a series of free online business training webinars for rural entrepreneurs and Farm Bureau members.

“Finding and Keeping Talent” will be presented on Tuesday, Dec. 2, at 3:00 p.m. EST. The webinar will focus on growing your team by developing staff in new ways, in addition to recruiting outside expertise for legal, export or marketing assistance.

Featured presenters include Jeff Reid, founding director, Georgetown Entrepreneurship Initiative; Jody Keenan, state director, Virginia Small Business Development Centers Network; and Tom Mirc, senior manager, Red Hat, business strategist and investor.

Interested Farm Bureau members and others are encouraged to RSVP by clicking here.

“Recruiting and developing a staff team and securing outside expertise to help grow your business are critical for rural entrepreneurs,” said Dr. Lisa Benson, AFBF’s director of rural development. “This webinar will address some of the unique challenges faced by rural entrepreneurs as they work to find the right experts including marketers, mentors, accountants, lawyers and insurance agents, to help take their businesses to the next level.”

The educational series, with five webinars in 2014, is a key component of the Rural Entrepreneurship Initiative, a joint effort between AFBF and GSEI. The series was created to address the major challenges that rural entrepreneurs are likely to face.
