Strategic Leadership Council Breakfast
As the health crisis around COVID-19 unfolds, we find ourselves needing to make some difficult
decisions to help keep you – the backbone of our business community – healthy and safe. After long
consideration, we are postponing the breakfast scheduled for Wednesday, March 18, 2020.
WHAT’S OUR AGENDA?
To examine the tools and strategies businesses need to acquire (and sharpen) to thrive in Bed-Stuy.
Learning from you would allow us to identify barriers to your success, help drive solutions and
equip us with the tools we need to strengthen our Merchant Services platform.
For 10 years we have taken our role as a trusted resource and advocate for more than 250+
businesses, property owners and merchants very seriously and we will continue to uphold our
commitment to you.
INSTEAD OF MEETING IN PERSON, WE WILL MEET VIA ZOOM.
You will receive an invitation via e-mail.
We are committed to this project and we are excited to help you grow.
You are an integral part of our Strategic Leadership Council!
Here’s how we want to create a strong economic engine for you and the community:
INSIGHT – You are closest to the challenges and we can learn from you.
ENTHUSIASM – What allowed you to say yes to doing business in Bed-Stuy? We want to capture the
excitement that led you to our community.
ACCESS – Once we learn from you what’s working well and what needs improvement, we will ensure you
have access to the resources you will need to continue to call Bed-Stuy home.
CONNECTIONS – We want you to c colleagues so you can expand your footprint in the business community.
