Educating and empowering small business owners with Facebook

Facebook has helped small businesses grow. A lot of small businesses. But for every inspiring story, there are still many small businesses who struggle to optimize their social reach due to a lack in digital skills. Facebook wanted to help. They friend requested OBE, and we instantly accepted. An opportunity to create positive change in communities across America? That’s a big thumbs up from us.

Together, we created a multi-market community event series that gave small businesses exactly what they asked for—hands-on, face-to-face training from Facebook by Facebook. OBE conceptualized, designed and executed the program in 30 US cities, including St. Louis, MO; Houston, TX; Albuquerque, NM; Greenville, SC; and Des Moines, IA. Our well-rounded, city and market specific training and networking experience integrated internal specialists, breakout sessions and main stage content in a cohesive environment. Truth be told: we took notes.

The Results: in progress
