Converting Connections Into Buyers: Sell Yourself with Social Media

Everywhere that a potential customer can discover you presents an opportunity to tell a compelling story:  Why they should hire, invest or buy from you?

Our social media experts will walk you through how to use today’s most popular platforms to create content that only attracts potential customers but also invites them to engage with you. These social selling tips and tools will give attendees insight into why this key marketing activity is part art and part science.

Building Your Team: How to recruit, manage, and retain top talent

Recruiting the right team to support you at each phase of your business’ growth is one of the most challenging but most crucial steps for an entrepreneur. The rise of the millennial workforce and a shift in traditional workplace expectations means that candidates are assessing their potential employers as much as employers are screening them. Will top talent choose YOU?

In this session, attendees will explore how they can think differently about the processes and policies in place to engage and retain their talent pool. You will leave with an HR plan built for businesses with big vision but small teams.

The Perfect Pitch: Win New Business Everywhere You Go

For small business owners, generating leads and finding new clients is critical for driving your business forward. An effective business summary or ‘elevator pitch’ will help business owners to position their offering for opportunities everywhere they go.

In this session, learn the tips and tricks to help you distill down your service offering into a short, snappy 45-second pitch that will leave a lasting impression. Attendees will practice in real-time and test out their new-found brevity. You will leave this session with new insight into an invaluable skill required by many but mastered by few.

Sell While You Sleep: Commerce Strategy with Shopify and Apple

For many small business owners, a business model that trades time for dollars is a common one that can limit one’s ability to grow and scale their business. Today’s selling tools have created unlimited selling opportunities for entrepreneurs; from online, in store and on your mobile phone. These tools allow your business to be working – even when you are not.

Working with Shopify’s business startup program, attendees will learn how to create a commerce strategy and leverage tools that can generate revenue while you sleep. This session is complete with Shopify success stories and best practices from Apple to help you create an action plan that can be implemented immediately.

The World is Your Office: Unleash your potential by using Microsoft’s collaboration tools anytime anywhere

As temporary offices, working from home, and collaborating with team members all around the globe becomes increasingly popular, your cloud application and collaboration tools can be the difference between a smooth work flow and a document disaster.

In this session, Microsoft will introduce the best tools for collaborating with your team from anywhere and everywhere so you can spend more time working together and less time managing documents.

The Hub: Choose Your Own Adventure

The Hub, central to the Rogers Talks 2016 experience, will invite business owners to explore innovative solutions to the most common challenges faced by business owners. From live demos with Google, an interactive solutions wall, and disruptive new products created by Rogers, this space is an opportunity to step up your game in all areas of your business. Connect with like-minded entrepreneurs and choose your own adventure.

Google’s Small Business Toolkit: Must-Use Apps for the busy entrepreneur

Are you your business’ marketing department, human resources, accountant and sales team? For entrepreneurs, wearing many hats is an overwhelming reality that can quickly distract you from your business goals and most important business activities.

In the Rogers Talks Hub, experts in productivity at Google will demo their collaboration tools and applications to help you run your business so that it doesn’t run you.
