Parkland County and the Greater Parkland Regional Chamber have partnered on a new speakers series aimed at small and medium sized businesses in the Tri-Region.  

The Business Expansion Series kicked off on March 24 and was offered in both a virtual and in-person format. The first series was focused on digital marketing and featured keynote speaker Ken Jurina who is the CEO and President of Edmonton based digital marketing agency Top Draw. 

“We’re very proud of the great businesses that have made their home in Parkland County. The Business Expansion Series is comprised of interactive learning sessions focused on helping our small and medium sized businesses grow,” said Parkland County Mayor Allan Gamble.

During the first event, participants sat through an hour long presentation by Top Draw, including live website audits, followed by a Q&A session.  

“Top Draw was referred to us through the Parkland Regional Chamber,” explained Gamble. “We’re looking at partnering with those entrepreneurial type organizations that have expertise in various areas within the business community, so they can share their information with our residents and businesses.” 

Planning for the second series is currently underway. Themes currently under consideration include HR decision making, export development as well as mergers and acquisitions. 

“We’re looking at any input that we receive back, and if there is enough desire, we will try to create a session to help the desire of the businesses within Parkland County,” said Gamble. 

Any business calling the Tri-Region home, operating primarily in the region, and falling under the category of sole proprietorships, partnerships, or corporations, are able to participate in the series too.  

“It’s just one way Parkland County continues to support our business community,” said Gamble. “It’s about learning and working and having the ability to improve your business and we’re working towards our shared future prosperity and building our regional economy.”
