    FORTalks FORTalks

    FORTalks  is designed to be a free training for all Fort Atkinson Area Chamber of Commerce Members and their employees.  By taking a “think local” approach, we utilize our members’ expertise to deliver short training sessions on targeted topics identified by our business community.

    Goal: To educate chamber members by using the expertise of their peers.  Each session will start at 7:30am on a Tuesday or Thursday and last no more than 30 minutes.  The sessions will be held in the chamber board room with up to 20 attendees.

    Attendees: Attendees will register for the free event online or by calling or emailing the Fort Chamber.  Attendees may double this session as a networking opportunity by bringing their business cards.

    Presenters: Presenters volunteer their time and expertise to fellow members.  They do not sell their business or promote themselves, although they are welcome to leave informational flyers and business cards for attendees.  The training session is designed to use the local expertise to assist in the success of their peers.  Presenters are requested to provide a brief outline of the training to the chamber.

    Why Sponsor a Chamber Event?

     

    No matter what type of business you are in, public relations and community interaction are just as essential as advertising!

    The Fort Atkinson Chamber of Commerce events are the perfect outlet for your company to gain the publicity and brand recognition that every business desires. Through sponsorships, our Chamber strives to create a partnership that is valuable to all who are involved. By concentrating on supporting the businesses in Fort Atkinson and surrounding areas in reaching their marketing goals through sponsored events, publications and web presence, the Fort Atkinson Chamber promotes the development of businesses in our area.

    In addition to enhancing visibility and image, there are many great benefits that coincide with sponsoring Chamber events:

    • Access to new business relationships- The face-to-face marketing opportunities at Chamber events allow businesses to build relationships with an unlimited number of new clients and customers. These events are also a great place to strengthen or renew relations with existing customers or clients.

    • Creates Customer/Community Loyalty- Your sponsorship and support of local community events builds rapport and increases the odds of your customers recommending your business to friends and other members of the community.

    • Advertising- Exposure in print, on our website and on-site advertising ensure heightened sponsor brand recognition among a targeted audience of business owners, executives and chamber members.

    • Demonstrates Community Engagement- Small businesses play an important role in the framework of any community and accept a portion of the responsibility of making sure that the community stays healthy and whole. Your involvement in community events exhibits your concern for the community in which you work, live and has a favorable effect on your business.

    • Publicity- Chamber events are highly publicized and so are their sponsors. Your company’s name is included in print and online advertising and collateral which will earn you public recognition.

    Keep Calm and Chamber on!
