Take concrete, measurable action toward your business goals!

Receive practical insights and actionable advice on relevant business topics in this half day symposium held at the LFCC Fauquier Campus.

This highly interactive and relational event features networking opportunities and three learning tracks, each geared toward business owners at varying stages of their business development cycle. Whether you are a would-be entrepreneur, a fledgling business, or a well-established business, you will find value in attending.

Throughout the morning, join our speakers at the “Happiness Bar”: a networking opportunity in the main gathering area (the “Lobe” in Wolk Hall at LFCC) where attendees can meet 1:1 with event speakers to ask questions and make valuable connections. Table sponsors will also be stationed in the Lobe, and attendees are invited to use the morning to create new relationships with sponsors and each other that will benefit their businesses.

Make connections with other business owners, create new relationships, and and take action to build greater success in your business.
