ASBA Kicks Off Arizona Speaks Series with A 2016 Point of View for Small Business


The Arizona Small Business Association (ASBA) kicked off their newest series, Arizona Speaks, with a bang last week!  The first session, A 2016 Point of View for Small Business, presented a high-level view of the key issues facing small business today.  All 5 sessions of the series will include panel discussions with industry leaders giving business owners and managers, ideas and strategies that will help keep them relevant in this new economy.  Speakers and topics from the most recent session included:


  • Charlie Berry, Senior Counsel, Clark Hill – Access to Capital & Financing for Small Business
  • Lisa Graham Keegan, Principal Partner, The Keegan Company – State of Education in Arizona & Issues Related to Small Business
  • Gunnar Light, Managing Partner, Global G Group – Going Global & Understanding if Your Small Business Can
  • Park Howell, Founder & President, Park&Co – Story Telling & Why It’s Important
  • Jim Small, Editor, Arizona Capitol Times – Public Policy & Getting Involved as a Small Business Owner


ASBA would like to personally thank CopperPoint Mutual Insurance Company for not only sponsoring Arizona Speaks – A 2016 Point of View for Small Business, but for agreeing to sponsor the remaining events.  The upcoming session in Arizona Speaks, titled Shooting Straight in your Small Business, is sure to bring even more buzz, as ASBA takes the event out onto the golf course!  You can expect to hear from top-notch professionals on topics including: knowing your competition, developing your brand, building your team strategy, keeping your business on course, and discovering solutions that save your business strokes.  For more information on the series and upcoming session, be sure to reach ASBA at or email Julie Armstrong at
