    America's Biggest Small Business Event: Zach Lezberg with Small Business Expo

    America's Biggest Small Business Event: Zach Lezberg with Small Business Expo

    Small Business Expo is America's largest networking and educational event for business owners, start-ups, and entrepreneurs, and it's coming to Phoenix on Tuesday, September 21, 2021. Joining Dr. Adrian McIntyre to talk about it is Zach Lezberg, CEO and Producer of Small Business Expo.
    Founded in 2008, Small Business Expo helps small business owners and other entrepreneurs take their businesses and ideas to the next level, offering quality free content and providing a thriving venue for some of the most exciting business theories and innovations.
    https://www.thesmallbusinessexpo.com/city/phoenix/ (Learn more and register for this free event at the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday, September 21, 2021.)
    https://www.linkedin.com/in/zachlezberg/ (Zach Lezberg), CEO and Producer of https://www.thesmallbusinessexpo.com/ (Small Business Expo), started his first entertainment business (a DJ company) at the age of 11. After graduating from the University of Miami, Zach moved to New York City and recognized there was really no solid way for small businesses to access a business community, other than through the local chamber of commerce. In 2008, he experimented with creating a trade show targeting small business in New York, and soon thereafter expanded to Los Angeles, Dallas, and Miami. In 2021, what is now known as Small Business Expo will be offered in 45 cities across the United States.
    While it wasn’t his original mission, through the development and growth of Small Business Expo, Zach has become the voice of small business in America. In liaising with approximately 1.2 million small businesses and entrepreneurs who subscribe to his content and attend his shows annually, he has his finger on the pulse of their daily struggles, frustrations, and fears, and works tirelessly to ensure they have access to education, business resources, and networking opportunities to grow and expand to the next level. “Small business owners who come to Small Business Expo and are part of our community, run the gamut from what I call the ‘wantepreneur’ — those who have been thinking about starting a business and just need that extra push to get going — to people who are already deep into operations and need help with growth, getting organized, becoming fiscally responsible, networking, marketing, social media, and much more. Small Business Expo gives them access to absolutely everything they need in one place to maximize their time.”
    And while COVID has really been hard on small business with a number of companies failing as a result of lockdown and breakdowns in supply chains, Zach sees an entirely new breed of small business coming out of COVID and successfully moving forward. “Americans are really entrepreneurial by spirit. Many have left or been forced out of corporate America and they turn to doing their own thing. It’s my goal with Small Business Expo to ensure they have access to the tools to be as successful as they possibly can.”

    Women in the Mining Industry in Arizona & Sonora | What Lies Beneath, Part 3

    Women in the Mining Industry in Arizona & Sonora | What Lies Beneath, Part 3

    In this episode, the last in a three-part series on women in mining called "What Lies Beneath," Jennifer Burge with WorldWise Coaching and Training, Nancy Morales-Arango with Bureau Veritas, and Melissa Sanderson with Mel Sanderson Consulting talk with Dr. Adrian McIntyre about the MegaWomen of the MegaRegion project focused on empowering women in the mining industry in Arizona and Sonora.
    A https://www.mining.com/mining-fingered-as-a-laggard-among-laggards-on-female-representation-report/ (recent study by McKinsey and Company) found that when it comes to women's representation in senior leadership in the global mining workforce, the sector is a "laggard among laggards." Female representation within mining company C-suites is just 13%. Among SandP 500 companies, there are only 30 female CEOs — not one of them from mining.
    Topics discussed during today's conversation include:
    Leadership skills and characteristics inherent to women that enhance our chances of success in hierarchies built and maintained by men
    Recognition of men as collaborators and mentors
    Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) to Ethical Sustainable Growth (ESG+)
    How to be your authentic self in both national and corporate cultures that are not your own
    Self-awareness as the key to successful communication
