Up to 50 small-business owners can register for these free workshops scheduled in May at Tri-C’s Corporate College® East (4400 Richmond Road in Warrensville Heights).
“LaRese Purnell’s expertise as a successful entrepreneur will help small-business owners grow their companies and master topics by sharing best practices and business knowledge,” said JaNice Marshall, vice president of Access and Community Connections at Tri-C. “The previous classes have been a resounding success with a high-interest level and turnout, and we are pleased to offer them again to small-business owners.”
The workshop schedule is as follows:

All workshops run 5:30–8 p.m. and include dinner. Each is limited to 50 registrants.
Purnell’s 19 years of experience in business management, taxes and finance include executive positions with multimillion-dollar for-profit and nonprofit corporations. He is the managing partner of CLE Consulting Firm and serves on the board of directors for the YMCA of Greater Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital, Cleveland Public Library Foundation, Step Forward, 100 Black Men in America Inc. and Business Volunteers Unlimited.
Master Classes for Small-Business Owners is part of the Entrepreneur in Residence initiative created by Huntington National Bank and the City of Cleveland.
