The SBCN was recently contacted by a gentlemen looking to find out a little more about our organization. When asked how he had heard about us, he replied:
"I came across the organization in a magazine article I was reading on a flight to Ottawa."
Having worked at the fringe of marketing for many years, I am always interested in how that whole realm works. One thing I see frequently (especially amongst small business people) is the confusion between Marketing, Public Relations, Advertising and Branding.
To many, these are often interchanged. I came across what I think is the most succinct and easy to understand depiction of the differences between these disciplines: see what you think.
The SBCN is pleased to be making a donation to this years Stroll for Liver event.
Many of you have enjoyed the Beehive Game being hosted by Michael Fletcher of Neworld Coaching. Please see the note below from Michael's wife: Dawn, who is raising money as part of this wonderful event...
Posted on behalf of Carol LaRue...
My name is Carol and I work for ACCE, a market research company located on Dunwin Drive in Mississauga. We have been in business for over 20 years and are proud to say we were named Small Business of the Year 2006 by the Mississauga Board of Trade.
As the founder of Motivational Steps and the creator of the 6 STEPS I know they work! You may ask yourself how? When I first used the 6 Steps I was going through the challenge of breast cancer and receiving radiation treatment at Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto. With lots of time on my hands and not much to do other than worry, stress out or cry I decided to do something to help myself and also get me through these dark days.
