Small Business BC, alongside our partners at The Presidents Group, Office of Small and Medium Enterprises and the Community Futures Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Program, is thrilled to announce the return of AccessAbility Month this September.
Whether you’re looking to start, grow or build business resiliency in these challenging times, September’s AccessAbility Month will feature 17 webinars, all with ASL interpretation and closed captioning. We’ve tailored our programming for this special month to offer our most popular webinar topics, covering subjects as diverse as starting a business, email marketing, and even how to conduct business with the federal government.
Available Webinars at Small Business BC
As we continue to navigate the challenges posed by COVID-19, all education at Small Business BC is currently being offered remotely, via webinar. Attendees at each webinar can access ASL interpretation alongside the speaker delivering the session.
Our webinars are hosted through Adobe Connect. If you’ve never attended an Adobe Connect webinar before, there are some quick steps to take to ensure you’re ready to go when you access the webinar.
