Small business luncheon on the agenda in Oakville

September 27, 2016 by  

Small business owners from Oakville, Hamilton, and Burlington are invited to take part in an opportunity to network with others while enjoying a lunch and presentation from a guest speaker.

There will be time for networking before the luncheon, during which each guest will have a chance to engage in some self-promotion by giving a one minute ‘infomercial’ style presentation about their company. Following this, the guest speaker Mr. Bradu will give his talk and then there will be even more time for discussion among the guests. He is a successful businessperson who will be discussing ideas about how someone can create their own private banking system, which he feels can be a moneysaving plan.

The luncheon will be held at the Hampton restaurant, which can be found at 754 Bronte Road in Oakville. The meet and greet portion will begin at noon. Guests are invited to stay as late as 1:30. A printer can be called upon to create high-quality digital business cards for those who attend functions such as this to distribute to any contacts they meet during the networking sessions.

There is no charge to take part in the event, which is being organized by Diana Boudrahem LegalShield Independent Associates. Those who are interested in participating can RSVP or find out further details on the luncheon’s Eventbrite page.
