Free Virtual Consultation for Chinatown Businesses
with Harvard Business School Club of New York
8/20, 10am: SCENARIO PLANNING - Webinar and Discussion Planning for different potential situations is essential for most companies – small business in particular. Not exactly a budgeting process, scenario planning allows you look forward and plan for potential events and then manage your cost structure accordingly. Scenario Planning is not a one-time, static approach to management – it is a dynamic process, one that you should update regularly so you don’t get caught unaware by future events. If your customer base returns quickly, what kinds of cost increases can you afford? If the City shuts down again, what steps should you immediately take?

8/22, 10am: OFFICE HOURS - This is an open discussion designed to answer general questions about particular issues your businesses may have. Plus, it’s a great forum for business owners to exchange ideas among themselves. What issues are you struggling with? Do any others have the same ones? How are they handling it? Normally, we suggest participants supply a few opening questions to start the discussion and then it becomes an interactive give and take. These sessions have been a particular favorite with the community.

This summer, The New York Times is commemorating the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. But Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton are not the focus.

Although their pioneering reform efforts in the 1800s helped women gain the right to vote when the 19th Amendment became part of the Constitution on Aug. 26, 1920, the goal of the project is to introduce readers to some of the many other women who were pivotal to the cause, Veronica Chambers, the project’s lead editor, said.
