Fort Lee Chamber Announces ‘Bridge to Success’ Series

The training and development series is intended for members and non-members alike, entrepreneurs, small business owners or a local business people, to learn how to put together business plans for 2013.

The Fort Lee Regional Chamber of Commerce (FLRCC) has announced its “The Bridge to Success,” a training and development series aimed at arming people with information and tools to evaluate, plan and execute their 2013 business plans.

The series starts Jan. 8 with a session on goal setting, the first of six sessions the Chamber will present throughout 2013.

“As an entrepreneur, small business owner or a local business person have you ever wished that you had a ‘coach’ to help you reach your goals?” organizers ask in a statement announcing the series. “Our new Training & Development Series will do just that.”

Speakers for the goal setting clinic, which takes place on Jan. 8, 2013 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Best Western 2300 Route 4 in Fort Lee, include FLRCC Executive Director Margaret Maclay and FLRCC Training & Development Coordinator Mirela Tarabokija.

Maclay is a business performance specialist with more than 25 years of corporate strategic planning and process development experience, according to the Chamber.

Tarabokija has been teaching individuals and families how to reach their financial goals for almost two decades, FLRCC says. 

The series will also include the following sessions:

  • “Is Your Foundation Solid?”—Feb. 5
  • “Watch Your Language”—April 2
  • “Half-Time—Know Your Numbers”—June 4
  • “Get the Word Out”—Sept. 3
  • “Success is Not an Accident”—Nov. 5

FLRCC says the “top three reasons” to take part in the series are education, perspective—or validating existing plans—and proactive—or preventing problems before they happen.

The cost of attending the sessions is $20 per session for members and $40 per session for non-members. Members and non-members can also sign up for the whole series at a cost of $100 or $200, respectively.
