Pandemic Shift Workshop begins November 17th

As a chamber member, you have an opportunity to participate in a FREE program sponsored by the Shift Group!  This program is to help  YOU SUCCEED  during this pandemic!  Building solution teams, ‘shifting’ your business model,  accelerating your ‘shift’, and finally to have the ability to thrive!

 

Small businesses struggle in these difficult conditions. But some thrive by shifting their business model, operations or mix of products and services.

Pandemic Shift gives business owners systematic tools to generate new ideas and explore opportunities, strengthening resilience and laying the groundwork for long-term growth.

It is a partnership of Stony Brook University College of Business,  Shift Group and Suffolk County, sponsored by Bank of America and Investors Bank.  All sessions are held on Zoom.

 

The core of Pandemic Shift sessions are intensive real-time collaborative sessions.

Facilitated by Shift Group experts, 4-6 person teams of business owners practice structured brainstorming to generate ideas and tactics related to individual business challenges.

Each participant has a solution team!

Welcome to the Middle Country Young Professionals

The Greater Middle Country Chamber of Commerce is regularly exploring routes outside of traditional customs and practices to improve the business opportunities for our members and community. One way we can do that is to leverage the ideas and energy of our younger professionals by assembling the Middle Country Young Professionals.

The formation and goal of this group of professionals under 40 is to provide a network and resource for them to discuss business challenges, provide solutions, share ideas, create inspiration, encourage growth and provide mentorship in a welcoming and comfortable environment.

If you have an employee or you yourself are a budding young professional who you know would be an asset and would like to recommend to be a part of aiding the professional growth of your younger employees and helping the GMCCC business community, please follow through to the link provided Young Professionals Interest Form
