Entertaining Interns

Here at the Chamber, we love our interns. Michelle Mikes works on graphic design & content management for the Forum for Business Monthly & George Koturo works with new & current members to help them get set up on the social media scene. Both of these talented young people are from Keiser University & both are invaluable to our Chamber on an almost daily basis.

I’m not afraid to tell you that I’m a little bit of a control freak. Those of you who know me, know that I don’t delegate very easily. So, when the opportunity for interns came my way, I was excited but also a little nervous about my ability to provide a meaningful experience for a student.

It’s taken me a few years to get a hold on what my responsibility is to the student & the school, and I’ve frightened off a few interns with my “red pen of doom”, but I believe that we’ve finally found a happy balance of good product for my organization and good experience for the student.

This Thursday, the Business & Breakfast will entertain a couple of the Internship Coordinators from our membership to provide you with the tools that you need to create a meaningful internship program at your company- one that benefits the business and the intern!

Join us! You can start out ahead of the game- and avoid the “red pen of doom”!

Business Etiquette is More Than Table Manners – It’s About People

“The Devil is in the details.” We’ve all heard that before, but when it comes to the topic of business etiquette, there’s more to know than just which fork to pick up at a client dinner. Thursday, CPS Investment Advisors will host the Chamber’s Business & Breakfast program, offering members a primer in company etiquette.

Dr. Rob Tate, VP of Advancement at Florida Southern College, will be on hand to share some of the common misconceptions about etiquette, and hopefully allay the fear that the word “etiquette” strikes in many people.
