Prior Seminar Topics
Our inaugural session on Tuesday, July 10th, was called, “Hiring, Firing and More: HR for the Small Business.” We had Matthew Raynes, an employment attorney from Eaton Peabody, and Danielle Caricofe, the VP of Human Resources at Machias Savings Bank, educate our group about the good, the bad, and the ugly of hiring and firing.
Our next topic was “Starting Your Own Business: What’s the worst that can happen?!” on September 19th. Ann McAlhany walked us through the nuts and bolts about starting a business and the joys (and trials!) about becoming your own boss. The City of Brewer’s Economic Development Team also made an appearance with their talk on finding the perfect location for your business and how to avoid common location pitfalls.
Our latest seminar on October 16th, Introduction to QuickBooks, was an introductory seminar that helped attendees gain a good understanding of QuickBooks concepts and their real life applications. Topics covered were basic set up, creating accounts, tracking inflow and outflows and reconciliations. For a copy of the presentation, please click here.
