Ira Gostin Announced as Featured Speaker at NCET Small Business Expo
Expo Provides Resources for Business Owners and Entrepreneurs
RENO, Nev.—Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NCET) is pleased to welcome Ira M. Gostin, MBA, APR, as a featured speaker at its 15th annual Small Business Expo Friday, October 15 in the Mt. Rose Ballroom at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center.
Gostin’s initial expo presentation, Adventures in Entrepreneurship, will present an overview of life as an entrepreneur that will help budding entrepreneurs dive in to being a successful founder and business owner. He will present a variety of topics, introduce the needed skills, drivers and tools required to launch life as an entrepreneur. Participants will leave with the resources to build their entrepreneurial platform.
In his second presentation, Drive Your Business Through Your Story, Gostin will demonstrate how to craft the story of your business and implement it as your key marketing catalyst. His team at G8 Strategies works with companies across the globe to create and deliver corporate stories with the goals of growth and moving the needle.
Gostin says, “Marketing isn’t about likes, shares and hashtags, it’s about engaging your target audience with a story they can act on. Skip these seminars if you want to remain stagnant and slide backwards with your business.”
Gostin is a principle at G8 Strategies, a Nevada-based global investor relations, marketing and communications agency. In his career he has founded or revitalized several companies and agencies including the development of a global publicly traded industrial company. He has directed company investor relations and corporate communications in a variety of sectors.
Dave Archer, NCET president and CEO, says Gostin is a winning complement to the Expo. “Ira has parlayed his years of corporate success into his global
growth agency. He has keen insight to share with others growing their businesses.”
