SBA staffers were on hand to give advice on owning one’s business. “We gave an overview of the SBA operations and the services offered. We also had interactive sessions with the public using a bulletin board to highlight the services that we offer,” said Marketing Officer, Sherwin Cumberbatch.
The SBA’s strategic partners were also on hand to distribute literature and hand out promotional memorabilia about their respective products.
Those who walked through the SBA head office at the Pelican Industrial Estate, Mr. Cumberbatch said, got the chance to view displays from businesses such as Luna Design, Ozone Therapy, Earth Mother Botanicals, Coral Spring Vinters Limited and Bird’s Nest Foods line of pepper sauce and other condiments.
