Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce- Dale Thomson & Shawn C. Leopardi
This week's episode takes us back to Ellwood City where we did an episode in the early stages of the Podcast with the Ellwood City Area Chamber of Commerce. We thought it would be a great idea to speak with the new Executive Director, Dale Thomson and have him introduce himself to those that may not be aware of who he is. We spend the first half of the show learning about Dale's background, visions he has for the Chamber moving forward and the entire event calendar for the rest of 2021.
For the 2nd half of the show, Ellwood City Area Chamber Board of Director Member, Shawn C. Leopardi, joins us to talk about the new marketing initiatives that he's helping to implement to make a chamber membership more valuable to businesses in the area. Shawn is a marketing mastermind and owner of CORE 3 Group which specializes in marketing, branding & business strategies. Shawn and Dale are working together to take the chamber to new heights and provide additional services that small businesses could benefit from having thanks to their annual membership.
