GGCC “Grow Your Business” Seminar & Expo Held

The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber (GGCC) in partnership with Mid-Atlantic Federal Credit Union’s Small Business University hosted its 7th Annual “Grow Your Business” Seminar & Expo on Wednesday, March 5 at the Highlands Conference Center,

This year’s seminar featured Art Dwight, Chief Learning Officer of One Decision, LLC, who spoke on “Timeless Secrets to Achieve Explosive Sales Growth”. Our second featured speaker was Monica Spilman, Senior Digital Marketer of 270net Technologies who presented “Digital Marketing for a Digital Age”.

“We hit it out of the ballpark with this seminar. Combining traditional sales and digital marketing provided a good overview of the old and the new, but it was our speakers who really brought it home,” said Marilyn Balcombe, GGCC Executive Director.

The seminar was sponsored by BusinesSuites Gaithersburg & the Montgomery County Department of Economic Development.
