Catch Up on our Accessibility Month Webinar Recordings

Last September, Small Business BC hosted Accessibility Month, a month of webinars accompanied by live ASL interpretation and closed captioning. As we continue our efforts to make our products and services as widely accessible as possible, we’re hosting recordings of three of our most popular free webinars from this month.

Each features closed captioning, and a recording of the live ASL interpretation. To view the ASL interpreter, you’ll need to adjust your setting in zoom.

Business Mapping: Developing a Smart Business Model

Struggling with the complexities of a business plan? Business mapping helps to deconstruct the formal elements of a business plan, simplifying a lot of the information into bite-sized pieces. It covers the same aspects as a more traditional business plan, without going into as much granular detail.

Join John Baxter, Small Business BC as he provides you with a lean start-up canvas for developing a new business that segments your potential enterprise into nine easy to understand chunks.

Appealing product design, a powerful brand story, and pricing strategies are important as ever.

Building an Inclusive Business

98 per cent of all businesses in British Columbia are small businesses. With such large representation in our province, these businesses have a crucial leadership role to play in providing equal access to opportunities and resources for those who might otherwise be excluded or marginalized, such as those with physical or mental disabilities. While most business owners would welcome this responsibility, they don’t know how or where to start.

Inclusivity is an important way to attract customers, investors, and prospective employees. Join Yat Li from the Presidents Group as we engage a panel of speakers to break down key steps and best practices to building an inclusive company. You’ll leave with concrete ideas and quick wins to get started, plus resources and support for continuing the journey.
