The Dallas Business Journal Business Growth Expo 2013 wraps up Small Business Week with a great way for business owners to gain valuable advice from expert speakers. Attendees will also learn more about new technology and services from a wide range of vendors, as well as network with other business owners, both in their field and others. The Expo, scheduled for October 10 at the Irving Convention Center, includes breakout sessions, and an After Hours networking event that will feature reporters, editors and staff from the Dallas Business Journal.  The Expo begins at 2 p.m.; the After Hours event runs from 6-8 p.m. 

Breakout Sessions

The breakout-session topics at the Expo promise to be informative for all businesses, and are an excellent complement to Small Business Week. Join Tom Niesen of Acuity Systems as he discusses Sales for the CEO. Donnie Walker of Insperity will discuss Decoding the Affordable Healthcare Act, a topic that is on the minds of every small business owner in the country. At 3:45 p.m. and again at 4:15 p.m., Jennifer Bagley and Casey Eberhart of the CI Web Group will talk about online marketing.

Keynote Speaker

Tony Jeary returns to the event as the keynote speaker, explaining how high-leverage activities are important to accelerating productivity and achieving results. Tony explains how successful people learn the art of delegation to the point that it becomes second nature. By intentionally focusing on activities that are high leverage, business owners get more done and see better results throughout their company. The keynote address begins at 2:30 p.m., and promises to be the highlight of this Small Business Week event.
