MLive Flint Office(FLINT, Mich., May 6, 2015) – The Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce is teaming up with MLive to offer “Mornings @ MLive Media Group,” a free speaker series covering a variety of business- and marketing-related topics.

Each hour-long session will begin at 8 a.m., with an agenda that includes networking, a light breakfast and a presentation, followed by time for questions and answers.

"This series is a great way for local business owners and professionals to jumpstart their mornings," said George Wilkinson, Group Vice President at the Chamber. “Each talk will provide attendees with relevant information and ideas that they can implement in the workplace. We hope participants will leave feeling inspired by what they have learned.”

The series will kick off May 21 with a talk about how small businesses can benefit from cloud computing, or the practice of storing and accessing data on a remote server. Ryan Litwiller, Sales Performance Manager at MLive, will co-lead the presentation with an IT professional from Flint’s SPI Innovations.

Then, on June 25, Brett Christie, MLive’s Senior Director of Sales Strategy, will highlight the use of passive recruiting strategies to attract and retain employees. Details about the Sep. 17 and Oct. 15 talks will be released in the near future.

“The business landscape is ever changing,” Wilkinson said. “In order to stay competitive, it’s imperative that local businesses take advantage of professional development opportunities such as these to learn about the latest technologies and practices.”
