FAQ
IS THIS EVENT SERIOUSLY FREE?
Yep! As part of LOCALiQ, we’re dedicated to helping business owners master the modern marketing and customer retention techniques they need to thrive. We love what we do, and we love taking it on the road even more. The Growth Lab was created in late 2018 with a simple goal: to serve our market with real value and meet the business owners we want to work with most in person.
WHAT’S THE CATCH? ARE YOU GOING TO TRY TO SELL ME SOMETHING?
Nope. We’re a proudly pitch-free event, and there will be no sales discussions in the room. If you’re curious about ways to work with us after the event, keep your eyes on your inbox. You’ll receive a treasure chest of additional free resources, webinar workshops, and find out a bit more about how we work with business owners like you.
HOW LONG WILL THE EVENT LAST?
The event is typically a couple of hours during the early-to-mid afternoon, so think of it as a “lunch and learn.”
CAN I BRING MY TEAM?
Provided we have space, absolutely. Please make sure they sign up as soon as possible for the event closest to you as these seats tend to get snapped up quickly.
WHAT DO I BRING TO THE EVENT?
YOU! (No, really.) We’re on a mission to connect in person with as many business owners as possible, to find out what your challenges are, where we can support you, and the kind of growth we can help you attain in your company and your industry.
