Day in the life at BTE Bootcamp™
Another invaluable feature of BTE Bootcamp™ is the numerous speaking sessions throughout the week from notable business leaders across the Palouse region and beyond. These speaking sessions come from industry leaders and are focused on giving campers the tools they need to be successful in their chosen industries. Sessions are planned throughout the week to match your development in camp, moving from telling your story to creating and implementing your business plan, and fleshing out the essential details of your business, such as marketing and financial planning.
Kimberly DeHart, BTE Bootcamp™ alum, said of the speakers:
“The speakers were very encouraging and really tried to get to know the people they were helping. They weren’t the kind of presenters who show up at their appointed hour, deliver a lecture, and then leave. They became part of the event.”
“Attending BTE Bootcamp™ will mean the success of this company, as much as the work we put into it,” Kimberly Hall, fellow BTE Bootcamp™ alum. “It’s meant everything.” Sage Francetich, who attended BTE Bootcamp™ with Hart, said of the experience: “By the end of BTE Bootcamp™, we were going, ‘Wow, we really didn’t know as much about launching a business as we thought we did.’ And I mean that in a positive way, because it was an awesome experience.”
The teaching sessions are just as much of a benefit to the speakers as they are to the campers. Tony Poston, President of College Hill Threads and returning sponsor and speaker at BTE Bootcamp™, sees BTE Bootcamp™ as a way to support the Palouse community. His passion for contributing to the economic development of the Palouse was the driving reason to get involved. “Supporting development is a way to bring in new young families to the area and encourage them to stay after graduation.
“Having supporting development is a way to bring in new young families to the area and encourage them to stay after graduation. Having new and exciting business in the area helps to recruit people to work here.”
