Piedmont Community College’s Small Business Center will offer a free seminar “Time and Stress Management for Small Business Owners,” on Wednesday, April 13 from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. at the Business Development Entrepreneurship Center, 105 N. Main St., Roxboro.
Presenter, Ed Ormsby
Some of the greatest drains on productivity occur when time is spent on insignificant tasks or trying to figure out what to do. Also, experts estimate that eighty-percent of meeting time is wasted on non-relevant topics. This seminar will expose small business owners to methods of recognizing time wasters and making better use of the time that they have available. Time pressures can often result in considerable stress, too – both physical and mental; and it can affect the performance of employees and associates also. Participants will also learn methods of handling and reducing stress.

The presenter, Ed Ormsby has been a small business developer and owner for over twenty years. He provides counseling and consulting services to small business owners. He is an accredited North Carolina Small Business Center Director (SBCN), Certified REAL, REAL Healthcare and Agri-REAL Entrepreneurial Instructor (NC REAL Enterprises), Certified Nonprofit Board Member Trainer (NC State University Institute for Nonprofits), and Certified Micro-Loan Intake Professional (NC Rural Economic Development Center). Ormsby is also the author of “Psst – – – – want to start a business?” The book is an introduction to the processes of starting and sustaining a new business.

Ormsby’s passion for helping others is apparent in the way he conducts his seminars as well as in his personal life. His presentation style is informal and engaging, encouraging participants to interact throughout.

Although the seminar will be offered at no cost to participants, pre-registration is required by April 11. To register, call the BDEC at (336) 599-0032.
