THE HUDSON VALLEY CENTER FOR INNOVATION / iCANny HOSTED THE LATEST ENTREPRENEURS BREAKFAST FORUM ON JUNE 6, 2012

CONTACT:  Sarah Burd, Media Coordinator, sarah@iCANny.net

DATE:           June 6, 2012

Featured Guest Speaker: Jan Wallen,

Author of Mastering LinkedIn in 7 Days or Less, Speaker and Professional Consultant, Specializing in Social Media

Many business owners lack the skills necessary to navigate markets, secure and maintain customer bases, and conduct business in an increasingly virtual world.  Few individuals understand how they can leverage social media to expand their sales opportunities and further their business development.

The HVCFI/iCANny Entrepreneurs Breakfast Forum on June 6, 2012 addressed the ways a business can develop the social media skills to attract new customers, foster substantial business growth and build a sustainable business. The moderator for the forum was Les Neumann, Managing Director of HVCFI and iCANny. 

 Each month the Breakfast presents an international guest to speak to the business climate from abroad. This month’s international speaker was Tobias Poensgen, Chief Executive Officer at UK- based ScienceWorks Ventures PLC and Managing Director of Momentum Capital.  Poensgen delivered his presentation via Skype on the economic recovery and the effects of Greece, Spain and Ireland on European business.   Neumann then delivered a brief presentation on the New Innovation Business Model and the conversion of innovation and concepts to economic value for business.

 Les Neumann then introduced the featured guest speaker at this month’s forum, Jan Wallen, speaker, author and professional consultant who specializes in social media.  In her presentation “Maximizing Your LinkedIn and Social Media Connections,” Wallen discussed how to leverage LinkedIn to improve sales and business development.  Her presentation specifically outlined how LinkedIn can help you get more clients, receive quality referrals that turn into business and reach the right people.

 Throughout the conference, the in-studio audience participated by asking questions to the presenters and become part of the conversation.  If you are interested in raising capital, accelerating the growth of your business, looking for partners or business relationships, job seeking or just want to let our audience know you exist, become part of the next breakfast forum on July 11th, 2012!
