 Charles “Chuck” Crain, a business and economics instructor for Campbellsville University, said its Hodgenville campus, The Brockman Center, isn’t getting a lot of foot traffic.

He hopes a business workshop planned for Feb. 23 will change that.

Last month, the Brockman Center hosted the LaRue County Chamber of Commerce luncheon with Crain as speaker.

The event was so well attended and his topic “How to Promote your Small Business” was so well received, the University has decided to plan several day sessions for business owners and management.

“I was very excited to see the positive response to our future workshop,” said Crain. “I have asked several members of the School of Business and Economics to … be a part of our workshop.”

The speakers and their tentative topics are Dr. Pat Cowherd, Dean of the School of Business and Economics (communications); Dr. Rick Corum, Associate Dean of the School of Business and Economics (management); Dr. Bill Adams, associate professor (organizational leadership); Chrys Hines, associate professor (computer information systems); Amanda Ewing, instructor (marketing-social media); and Crain.

Sessions are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. with lunch noon to 1 p.m.

They will include using Facebook and web sites to promote business. 

“If you’re not using technology, you have to,” he said. “Twenty years ago the technology generation entered. What will happen 15 years from now?

“If you want to be successful, you have to use technology.”

Crain is requesting other topics from the community.

“We will be happy to cover any topics that interest you and will do so to the best of our ability,” Crain said.

He can be reached at 270-358-0050 Ext. 203 or crcrain@campbellsville.edu.
