Jane McKenna, MPP - Burlington visits Business Development Centre
July 19th, 2012
Ms. McKenna’s office contacted the Business Development Centre requesting a meeting due to our presence in serving the small business community. The nature of the meeting they requested was to “gain a sense of what the economic climate is like facing new and small businesses, and what your services/strategies are for helping businesses grow and prosper are.”
We were pleased to have been asked for our opinions. We help tens of thousands of entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses every year, so we have a few ideas!
The meeting was a lively one - turns out Jane’s husband has his own small business and so she knew the challenges. Jane’s goal was to hear of ideas on making it easier for people to start businesses, getting the resources and support they need to be more successful, and how to reduce the “red-tape and reporting” that can be daunting for some. She said that her research shows that small businesses face too many requirements that take time away from doing the actual business and that, therefore, hurts their profitability.
When Jane came to better understand what we do at Business Development Centre, she was excited to hear about our services and extra resources we provide to help entrepreneurs succeed. She got an on-line tour of BusinessConnect, our new portal for entrepreneurs .
A Rogers TV station aired a short interview with Jane where she mentioned how important what we do is for small business. That was very rewarding to hear.
After the meeting, Jane’s office sent this note:
“Thank you for your seasoned perspective. You provided us with a lot of valuable information and we were glad that you felt comfortable enough to speak frankly. Our province needs more candid conversations, and it certainly stands to benefit from listening more closely to the needs of small business.”
