Kathy's Connection


Saturday I was thrilled to be a witness to the opening of our new indoor, year-round Farmer's Market in in Vancouver, WA (America's Vancouver) The market evolved over a fifteen year period from 20 to 240 vendors. Now there is a permanent home where we can go all year to buy fresh local produce.

The facility was developed through the use of strong business communcations skills from everyone from the Mayor to the developer of the building to the farmers. Saturday I was standing next to the former Mayor who began the process as we watched the garage-type doors opened the market to the public. We gave each other a hug for we knew we were witnessing the results of communicaton and partnerships at their best.

BUSINESS COMMUNICATION TIP: Grand openings, ground breaking ceremonies, press conferences are all places where you can meet and talk to high-level officials. Actually, there is no better place to network,
AND they are free.
