Tuesday afternoon Buckeye Interactive President, Brad Griffith, presented a webinar to the Center for Workforce Development at Columbus State Community College IT Internship Program. The hour-long session focused on the beginning steps of personal financial planning and covered topics including credit card usage, expense budgeting, and employee benefits–important financial knowledge for newly independent college students.
Later this week Brad will be speaking at the Small Business Administration (SBA) Marketing Workshop, which centers on aiding community members who wish to start their own small business. This interactive series of presentations will educate new and future business owners how to build a site with e-commerce, actions to take on the site, and how to measure the site’s efficiency.
Giving back to the community and inspiring Columbus’ future business leaders is something Buckeye Interactive President, Brad Griffith, has become invested in; speaking at events such as The Kiwanis Club of Columbus’ 38th Entrepreneurship Challenge and the Dublin Entrepreneurial Camp. Griffith states, “It’s very important as business owners to share our expertise and lessons learned while starting our businesses with the next generation of entrepreneurs. I always encourage my team to learn from each other and share their knowledge with the community through speaking engagements, workshops, and volunteer work.”
The Small Business Administration (SBA) Marking Workshop is scheduled for Thursday, August 11th at Columbus Urban League. Nancy Stoll and Tonya Wilson of Small Business Development Centers are also expected to speak.
