CO-OPS: FREE DEPT. OF TRADE'S ENTERPRENEURSHIP BRIEFING SESSIONS, 2013
Cooperatives should have people always on the look out for seminars that can put added value to the cooperative's products and services. Maybe someone from the "product/service development" unit. Or perhaps from the Education Committee.
One such source of FREE seminars is the Dept. of Trade and Industry, through its Bureau of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Development (BMSMED). They call it Entrepreneurship Briefing Sessions.
1-HOUR BRIEFING SESSIONS
These are one-hour topic briefing sessions geared towards enterprise creation and development, and to impart more knowledge and information necessary in starting and running a business. It says so in its website.
These "will run every Tuesday from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m." The venue is at the BMSMED Training Room, 5/F, DTI Building, 361 J. Puyat Ave., Makati City.
