The creation of this workshop

Tony Wilkins is the owner of TCS Inc and the author of the best-selling Telemarketing Success for Small and Mid-sized Firms and the host and executive producer of the popular internet radio show Small Business Forum www.blogtalkradio.com/tonywilkins ; and has been working in the business development industry for thirty years. His coaching, business development workshops and books have enabled a countless number of small business owners to prosper regardless of economic despair. His Blogtalk Radio program ‘Small Business Forum,’ which premiered in July 2011, provides a platform for business owners to introduce themselves to a global audience. The show also provides tips to help business owners avoid pitfalls, embrace and overcome small business challenges, while growing their markets. Mr. Wilkins has launched a series of Meet and Greet Networking events throughout 2013 (and throughout the U.S.) to help small business owners promote their businesses while bringing attention to the new radio show. Small Business Forum is currently a 30 minute chat show and will be launching its new 1 hour format at 3:30 pm Pacific on March 2, 2012.
