Leveraging Your Localness: Small Business Workshop


Join FEDC, the Downtown Assocation, FNSB, and the Chamber of Commerce for renowned 'Think Local' advocate and entrepreneur Kimber Lanning's workshop "Leveraging Your Localness" -- a two hour workshop for small business owners. Kimber has spoken to our Fairbanks business owners and comes armed with an understanding of the unique opportunities and challenges facing them. 

Topics will include:

About Us: Are you really telling your story? What makes you passionate and why it matters

Collaboration for diverse businesses and how to pool precious marketing dollars

Talking about economic leakage to residents/consumers and being stronger together

How to leverage events to drive new customers

Thinking regionally- what could regional mean to you and your business

How to more effectively compete with the ‘big guys’

Speaker Kimber Lanning will inform and inspire small business owners to think differently about how they’re positioned in the marketplace, and most importantly, will help them understand that the future depends on small businesses being more competitive to meet consumer demand and retain hometown jobs.

The event will take place on Tuesday, November 15 at 2:00 at Raven Landing. Registration is $20 and tickets can be purchased here.

Any questions, email Samantha at or call 452-2185. 

We hope to see you there!
