This "Great Ideas" presentation by award-winning journalist Jane Applegate provides lively, practical strategies to help you manage, grow, and promote your business today. This forum focuses on timely strategies for thriving in challenging times, how to leverage both on and offline marketing more effectively and how to manage the unique challenges of running a family business. Applegate, the author of four books on small business management, will include case studies and success stories based on her interviews with thousands of successful entrepreneurs.
