Business and trend education will enhance International Market Centers' (IMC) Open Year Round resource offerings at AmericasMart Atlanta this spring, with a must-attend webinar discussing business boundaries on May 31, and a "Lunch & Learn" session on color trends during the next Market Wednesday on June 7.
"IMC is committed to maintaining and expanding our connection with retailers and designers by offering informative programming – both virtually and in-person – throughout the year," said Dorothy Belshaw, IMC executive vice president, chief growth officer. "The coming educational sessions are a valuable extension of the extensive resources in gift, home and apparel that are open daily at AmericasMart Atlanta."
A special webinar addressing "Boundaries: Setting Them, Holding Them, Loving Them" will be presented by renowned business coach Justine Clay on Wednesday, May 31, from 1-3 p.m. EST. Sponsored by Business of Home and AmericasMart Atlanta, this course will explore how to identify top priorities, define individual capacities, and provide a road map for weaving boundaries into every aspect of a business.
Clay began her career in creative representation, launching her coaching business in 2010. Since then, she has been helping freelance creatives and entrepreneurs of all types build thriving careers. Clay teaches her clients how to position, market and profit from their individual expertise through one-on-one coaching, group programs, talks and workshops.
