One of Omega’s core values is “education,” and we mean this in every sense of the word. We encourage our entire staff to better themselves personally and professionally through reading and education. We even pay them to read. Omega has also had the fortune to participate in many business education programs, including Goldman Sachs 10,000 Businesses, Economic Gardening, and more.
While conferences, seminars, and other business events are not happening in person, many businesses from New Orleans (any beyond) are hosting webinars. These online events allow the hosts to share their expertise and the business community to connect with each other. And most importantly, it gives business owners and leaders access to valuable educational information.
The following events are scheduled for the coming weeks:
