The 2010 CNU-SBI Business Workout Presents: Is Your Business “Fit?”

(Newport News, Va.) - Christopher Newport University’s Small Business Institute® (SBI) will host a “Business Workout,” Friday, August 6, 2010, from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. at the David Student Union.  The conference will give small businesses and non-profits an opportunity to develop a self-assessment strategy that increases their effectiveness and efficiency throughout all phases of operation. This will be accomplished by identified topics of interest presented by business practitioners and academicians.  

The primary mission of CNU-SBI is to enhance the success of small businesses and non-profit organizations by providing the business owners with workable, practical, and feasible short-term solutions to complex business problems. Common types of assistance offered include business plans, management & human resources plans, marketing plans, market research studies, legal & regulatory plans, corporate philanthropy plans, and promotional plans; accounting, financial, operational, and business systems analysis; and website development.

CNU-SBI has placed nationally in the top three categories for student consulting for the past five consecutive years, and remains the most awarded undergraduate program in the history of the National SBI program. At the current rate, CNU-SBI serves eight clients per academic year.  Selected companies/organizations are the benefactors of in-depth analyses of their entire operation and recommendations for improvement.
