A New Direction
A New Direction
Recently we launched the St. John’s Board of Trade blog. The blog is a new way for us to share information with you our members and to promote your business.
The St. John’s Board of Trade has re-invented ourselves. Our vision is to be the “go-to” place for business.
We have launched two new initiatives to complement our advocacy, and networking events:
Rhonda Tulk Lane is our Director of Business Solutions. Knowledge is power, and missing access to an available resource can mean the difference between success and failure. Rhonda’s job is to connect members with solutions and resources to help their business succeed
Tess Burke is our story teller. Everyone likes a good story and today, digital platforms offer everyone easy access to audiences. By using video and blogging, Tess will help members create their narratives and share them with the digital audience. We will post these videos on our site and share out on social media.
We also have enhanced membership packages if you would like to upgrade your membership and bundle promotional to create new opportunities for your business. Margie Davis, Principal Account Executive would be happy to discuss these new options with you.
The Board remains committed to hosting first class events where you can network and learn from interesting speakers.
We will also remain tenacious in our advocacy efforts at the municipal, provincial and federal level to ensure this city and province remains a great place to live and make a living. Brandon Ellis has joined our team as a Policy and Research analyst and brings a fresh and innovative perspective to issues facing business.
Some of you have benefitted from our Connector Program which matches recent graduates with employers. We are happy to report that this program has expanded across the island with offices in Central and Western Newfoundland. Brendan Hagerty is the Manager of labour Market solutions is ready to help you find the talent you need
We are also expanding our Labrador & Arctic initiative to help you with exporting no matter where in the world you want to go. Janet King is the Mentor for Labrador & Arctic Initiatives, she has a number of events planned to help you take advantage of opportunities in the North feel free to reach out to her to get more details.
We have turned the page in 2018 to make ourselves more relevant and responsive to your needs. If there is anything we can do to help your business succeed we want to know.
