At @tklmedia, they understand that your brand story is best told when it has original photos, engaging videos, well-written posts and community interaction. Social media is the perfect platform to build a relationship with the public in an open, honest, transparent way!

Creating engaging content for your brand is not done with just simple pictures. Using an influencer’s approach for social media allows you to build a relationship with your community, which is the best way you can tell your brand story and communicate what it is you can do for them.

In this workshop, you will learn the most important parts of social media and why online communities are the future of business.

Team Check-ins - a proactive approach to workplace wellbeing

MEET OUR EXPERT:
Michelle Donaldson, Lakelee HR & Controller Services @lakeleehr

Hello! My name is Michelle. I’m a Human Resources Consultant and the co-owner of Lakelee Human Resources and Controller Services. I offer a Virtual HR Department for small to medium sized businesses that may not require full-time HR leadership or perhaps can’t afford it just yet.

As a Generalist, I have experience in all areas of human resources. I have worked 12 years in the field and I love it. I get to work with different people, in different lines of work and having the opportunity to help them structure processes and practices to help efficiencies and understanding, is something I take great pride in.

2020 has been a difficult year for everyone, and HR Professionals have certainly been feeling the pressure to get custom policies together, ensure people have what they need to be successful while working offsite and somehow keep everyone feeling connected to their team. Mental health of our team members, our families and ourselves has come to the forefront as well. Whether the anxiety of the pandemic itself, the isolation working from home, or having to manage work life and home life at the same time, it’s all been too much for many of us.

This translates into time off work because people are ill, low-productivity because it’s difficult, if not almost impossible, to focus with everything going on around us and overall low motivation. Where some have thrived working from home, the studies are confirming what we we’ve always known. We are social creatures, that need social interaction and without water cooler chats and quick check-ins about our weekends, we’re left with just the work. It’s what we are trained to do, but without the easy access of our co-workers to run ideas by, have a laugh here and there throughout the day, we are less productive and less happy in our work.

2020 was most likely the most stressful year that most of us have ever experienced, and for many of us, it has raised an awareness of how critical mental wellbeing is for our teams to thrive and persevere. With this in mind, we have secured experts to help us understand how to do team check-ins - how to recognize signs of distress in staff, what you can not ask, how to address issues, and why taking a proactive approach can help your business.

Preparing Your 2020 Taxes: Understanding the Impact of Government Supports

Every level of government has stepped up with supports for individuals and businesses this year to help see us all through Covid. With funding announcements made, details following, then updates to programs based on feedback from Canadians, the quantity of information can be overwhelming, particularly for business owners in survival mode just trying to see their way through to recovery.

Tax professionals are used to updating their skills and knowledge base, but this year has seen that proactive approach increasing tenfold, so we are very pleased that Nancy Stabback of Padgett Business Service is prepared to share her expertise with us. Nancy will explain the key items you should be aware of and tracking for your business accounting to be ready for tax time.



ABOUT OUR EXPERT

Nancy Stabback, Padgett Business Services Barrie

Nancy Stabback is a local small business bookkeeping, accounting, and tax professional, who helps small business owners navigate the challenging financial and tax compliance requirements they face.

Before starting with Padgett Business Services, a Franchise operating in both Canada and the United States, Nancy owned and operated several small businesses, providing a unique perspective on the needs of her current clients.

Originally from Beaverton, Ontario, Nancy purchased her first business with family members, and operated a small restaurant. 4 years later, after the sale of that first business, Nancy went on to run a larger foodservice/retail location for another 12 years. At this point, she began working at a local accounting office, and then decided to go on her own with the Padgett Franchise.

Padgett Business Services specializes in Small Business Bookkeeping, Accounting and Tax work for small business owner operators. Nancy began working with Padgett in 1998, purchasing the Franchise location in Orillia, Ontario. In 2014, Nancy partnered with Andy Gubbels, and acquired the Barrie location as well.

During this time, Nancy has served on the Business Enterprise Resource Network Board in Barrie (6 yrs), and on the Padgett Business Services Advisory Council (10 yrs). Nancy also taught Accounting on a very part time basis at Georgian College. Nancy’s Franchise has been in the Padgett Business Services Leadership Club for 11 years in a row. Nancy was featured in an article in the Canadian Business Franchise from the spring of 2017.

They've even promoted this need to Ontario Chamber of Commerce and Canadian Chamber of Commerce in the goal of sharing the need for all Legions across Canada. Hurt by COVID-19, many Legions are struggling to financially survive. Enjoy this commercial that will run on CTV2 Barrie until Remembrance Day. Please support Barrie Legion 147 or your own Local Legion. Let's support those who have served us and protected our freedoms.
