SCORE Miami-Dade offering 5 workshops in Spanish

Starting in May, SCORE Miami-Dade will present five new business workshops in Spanish – thanks to sponsorship from Staples. SCORE is a longtime provider of free and low-cost resources to entrepreneurs and small businesses.


“We realize how important it is to reach this growing group of business owners with Spanish language workshops to provide them more tools to grow and succeed,” says Marjorie Weber, Chair of Score Miami-Dade. “The support from Staples will help us reach an under-served part of Miami’s new business population.”


The first Spanish language workshop, “Creando un Plan de Mercadeo,” will help business owners or those considering starting a business create their marketing plan, promote their business and learn how to use the Internet to increase sales. It takes place on Thursday May 9, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. at Shake a Leg Foundation, 2620 South Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove, FL 33133. Presenter Luis M. Zuniga, former President and Secretary of the Miami-Dade SCORE chapter, is a current SCORE counselor with 40 years of experience in marketing and sales operations for high-tech multinational corporations.


On Saturday June 8, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., SCORE will feature “Estrategias para mejorar la Productividad de su Negocio usando Internet e Innovación.” Students will learn techniques, strategies and methods to improve business productivity using the Internet and social networks. Presenter Gonzalo Capriles is an international consultant with extensive experience in business competitiveness using internet marketing and social networking. The workshop will take place at the Small Business Administration Offices, 100 South Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33131.


The cost for each workshop is $30. Register at http://miamidade.score.org or call 786-425-9119 for more information.


The additional three Spanish-language workshops will take place this fall.
