First KCKCC Business Solution Breakfast Tuesday, Sept. 10

The kickoff breakfast of the 2013 Business Solution Series at Kansas City Kansas Community College will be held Tuesday, Sept. 10.

Rudolf Waldner, author of Marketing from the Trenches, will present the opening program on “Trench Marketing” at the meeting designed to help further economic expansion in Kansas City.

Along with networking and tips from local business experts, one business will be highlighted at each breakfast. Designed to highlight the core elements that make up a business, the Wine Barn Winery will be the first to be featured in the business spotlight.

“This series will allow area entrepreneurs and businesses to collaborate, learn and grow,” says Matlack. “It is amazing how we regularly see each other out and about but often know very little about what each other’s businesses or jobs provide to our community. This series is an effort to inform one another of the great work that is being done throughout Kansas City.”
