Now in its 20th year, the popular business breakfast series from WCBS Newsradio 880 is coming to Mahwah New Jersey, at the Bergen-Rockland Border and minutes from the Tappan Zee Bridge. The event will be hosted by the Wall Street Journal’s Joe Connolly – the morning business voice on WCBS 880. Come hear how to make your business stand out and don’t miss out. We sold out the New Jersey event last year and the March Business Breakfast in Stamford was standing room only.
The WCBS US Postal Service Small Business Breakfast will show you ways to market your small business and grow like the tech firms are doing. We’ll spend the morning talking about how to make your brand stand out plus you’ll get real insight into ways to network more effectively and build sales. Make sure to join the US Postal Service breakout session immediately following the breakfast at 10:00 a.m..
