Author and public speaker Mark Meinke shared his wisdom on local business best practices at Assist Business Centre.  The event had a full house of thirty attendees of local Strathmore business members who shared cards and ideas of operating together as a close-knit community.

Meinke has a large body of experience as he is the founder of the Okotoks Business Association and host of a podcast on award-winning real estate tips.

Grace Schouten said, "You will have made a number of face to face contacts within your business community and could possibly work on some mutual challenges and discover beneficial method in dealing with them.  If you are in the same industry you might consider group buying to keep the cost down."

The next Strathmore Business networking night will be held in February at Bow Valey College and Humpty's restaurant the following month.
