Small Business Workshop: Aligning Your Business With Your Values
Discover how community service equals business success!
Chris Powell of UnifiedLine3 (pronounced UnifiedLines) educates small business owners how to incorporate community service values into their business, engaging employees and customers along the way. Whether you’re starting from the ground up or need to tweak an existing program, Chris can show you how to evaluate return on investment, measure internal and external impact, and better plan for future service initiatives.
Chris served in the Peace Corps for 14 years, including 2 years in Senegal, West Africa. Since leaving the Peace Corps, Chris continued his work connecting community, business and government, working as a coordinator for a community grants program for the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Agriculture; directing corporate partnerships for a national non-profit; and working the corporate side of the public-private partnership model.
This workshop will show you how when business gets involved in community works, it embodies the spirit of, and play off of, the Triple Bottom Line People, Profit and Planet. Look to unify employee volunteerism and community service with business success – this is an effort to create positive work/life environments!
