Who is this for and what will I leave with? "Next Level Business" is a speaker series and panel discussion sponsored by Say Bookkeeping in New York City. These events are geared towards small to mid-size business owners or those interested in growing their business connections. The purpose is to provide educational content in an environment conducive to networking.

The panel discussion will last for a period of 60 minutes. Experts from a variety of different industries will speak briefly about their area of expertise. Following the introduction, there will be a question and answer session which may lead to additional discussion where each of the panelists may weigh in on the topic.

There is no such thing as a shortcut when it comes to building relationships that truly matter and have a positive impact on your business growth.
