    Event Description:

    We are thrilled to partner with the BC Chamber Network and Gustavson School of Business to offer Building Resilience to Thrive.

    The Building Resilience to Thrive program, supported by Western Economic Diversification Canada, will focus on the three key themes of Strive, Build, and Create. The curriculum will help SMEs be the best they can be, build a strong team, and create value with their customers. Weekly seminars will be supplemented by facilitated Resiliency Roundtables to bring local SMEs together in smaller groups online and offline to anchor and support the curriculum. 

    Offered as a COVID-19 recovery certificate, the 6-week program, delivered by award-winning professors Dr. Mark Colgate and Prof. Brian Leacock, will be presented in three cohorts between November and March 2021. The program will offer relief to businesses, helping to mitigate the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic by teaching them how to adapt their business models, re-engage customers, and adjust workplace cultures. 

    The program is being offered to individuals at a minimal registration fee of $35.00 per participant for Chamber members and $70.00 per participant for non-members, to ensure cost isn’t a barrier during the pandemic.
    The program will be offered on the following dates: 
    • ROUND ONE: Nov 3 to Dec 8 | Tuesdays 11 AM to 12 PM
    • ROUND TWO: Jan 12 to Feb 16 | Tuesdays 11 AM to 12 PM
    • ROUND THREE: Feb 24 to Mar 31 | Wednesdays 11 AM to 12 PM
    This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity that will not only benefit your business directly, but will also support the Duncan Cowichan Chamber in accessing WEDC funding, enabling us to further our work on behalf of Cowichan businesses. We are all on this road to recovery together!
