Truckee Chamber to launch ‘Knowledge Bites Series’

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. – The Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce announced the launch of the Knowledge Bites Series, covering the whole spectrum of doing business one bite at a time.

Knowledge Bites will provide strategies for pivotal business skills broken into digestible pieces.

"We know professionals today are very busy, so we have taken an agile approach for learning key business skills and packed them into bite-sized chunks," said Chamber board member Dave Sick. "In just 90 minutes, attendees will learn from real-life local businesses and local experts to attain new knowledge and skills to help them grow their business in today's constantly changing economy."

Each session will focus on specific business topic such as marketing basics, social media or reinventing your business.

Two chamber businesses will be featured as a case study and will be examined by two chamber members who are experts in their field. The expert presentations will be followed up by questions from the audience.

"So often you attend a seminar and the information provided is so broad or abstract," said Pam Hobday, Chamber board member. "This format provides immediate hands-on feedback for the real world. Local business experts use a case study format providing both a background of each local business and a strategy for the respective business topic in each meeting … We believe this will be a tremendous value for everyone including businesses, experts and attendees"
