It’s hard to miss Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital’s giant rooftop heart towering over the landscape of Downtown Memphis. It’s an appropriate symbol for the facility it adorns, as below it, medical practitioners are helping children, saving lives and giving families hope every day.
Goodwill’s mission is to change the lives of people with disabilities and other barriers to employment through the power of work, education and empowerment. We take gently-used clothing and household items and process them for sale which creates meaningful employment for those who “touch” the donations every step of the way. Goodwill also saves close to 7.2 million pounds of material from landfills.
Small Business Saturday was created to encourage shoppers to patronize the brick and mortar businesses in their area while searching for holiday gifts. While we encourage you to look local when purchasing a sweater for your mom or cookies for your coworkers, we think it’s a great idea to shop small year ‘round.
As the first rehabilitation-only facility for small animals in Memphis, member Pet Fit Animal Rehabilitation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for your pets. Dr. Roxana Carabello shares with us today the services her facility offers and what led her to this career.
Agape Child & Family Services is a faith-based, non-profit organization dedicated to providing children and families with healthy homes in the Memphis area.
Several years ago, my husband asked why I always watched a particular local news broadcast. The one I watched was consistently No. 2 on the Nielsen charts, but my response was easy. The No. 2 station offered a quality newscast and supported the community with school supply drives, winter coat drives and as the media sponsor for nonprofit events. He couldn’t think of an argument against that!
In each issue of Memphis Crossroads, we highlight a Board of Advisor level member, showcasing their important role in the Chamber as well as the business community. Kenneth Dowling, Managing Director of Young & Rubicam Memphis shares why his organization is part of the Chamber as well as some benefits of doing business in Memphis.
We are rapidly heading into the holiday season, and businesses across the Mid-South are appointing the office party planning committee, ordering the spiral-sliced ham and deciding whether or not to allow significant others to join the festivities. While offices might spend a considerable amount of time and energy on choosing a venue, managers rarely take the time to set out a plan to avoid legal issues.
It’s in the nature of Triumph Bank to see what needs to be done and then go after it with gusto.
That’s how it was 10 years ago when some local businessmen saw how local community banks were being taken over. “They decided to start a bank that would be local and stay local, run by successful business people with a focus on commercial lending,” said Traci Blair Strickland, Triumph’s Vice President of Marketing. “The bank would welcome small businesses and work with them to get started, grow and flourish in the Memphis economy.”
Technology is constantly evolving. Every day, we’re seeing new apps, new widgets, new innovations. But there’s one thing that isn’t changing with technology: if it doesn’t work, we won’t use it.
In web design, that’s called user experience (or UX). And it’s a key element that small business owners can’t afford to ignore.
