The Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado and the Colorado Springs Small Business Development Center are holding a series of educational events geared toward small businesses from June 17 to 21.

The series kicks off with a talk about networking, featuring speaker Kevin Knebl of, Knebl Communications LLC. It ends with an awards luncheon with Weldon Long, an ex-convict turned business owner and author, who will discuss "The Power of Consistency."

In between are evening sessions on a number of topics, featuring local business professionals. All events are free, except the June 21 session, but RSVPs are required; go to the links provided below for each event.

The June 21 morning session is $25 per person; the lunch is $40; the seminar and lunch together are $55.

Marjorie Noleen, director of marketing and events of the BBB, said this marks the first time her organization and the SBDC have collaborated on a Small Business Week event. It's also the first time the program has stretched beyond one day.

"To my knowledge, it is the first of its kind for this area, and the week-long concept has been well-received on a state level," she said via email.
