Verizon is proud to once again sponsor the second annual Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business Week, May 12 –16. We have a number of activities lined up for small business owners in the Philadelphia-metro area so please join us.

 

Today, join our social media contest to help kick off the week. Just follow both @PhillyChamber and @VZSmallBiz, then tweet out to us and tell us something cool or fun about one of your favorite regional small businesses and use the hashtag #PhillySmallBizWk to be automatically entered. All tweets must be posted by 4 p.m. ET today, May 12, for your chance to win an UP by Jawbone fitness tracker.

 

Mark your calendar to network with us and other small business owners in the area this Wednesday at the Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District starting at 5:30 p.m. Click here to register or go to http://vz.to/1uUiBwL.

 

On Thursday, join an interactive webinar at 10 a.m. featuring Dr. Mark Goulston, chairman and co-founder of Heartfelt Leadership, as he shares insights on how to follow through on your commitments to gain respect and trust from others, and to succeed in your career and business.

The culminating event will take place Friday morning at the Liberty View Ballroom with a discussion that will focus on strategies and resources to help your business grow. Chris Rabb, author of Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity, is the keynote speaker. Afterwards, hear from a panel of dynamic speakers about their business growth journeys and about tips to ensure your business is prepared to expand.
